miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar children
A Novel

“The house was strewn with discarded things, most of which looked like they hadn’t been touched in years. Brittle newspapers gathered in drifts. Scattered toys, evidence of children long gone, were skinned with dust. Creeping mold had turned windowadjacent walls black and furry.”
By ransom riggs A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. And a strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children who once lived here—one of whom was his own grandfather—were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a desolate island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive. A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

Bedbugs
A Novel of Infestation

Sleep tight—and don’t let these critters bite!
By New York Times Best-selling author Ben H. Winters Alex and Susan Wendt are the perfect couple in search of the perfect brownstone—and they find their dream house in the heart of Brooklyn Heights. Sure, the landlady is a little eccentric, and the handyman drops some cryptic remarks about the previous tenants. But the rent is so low, it’s too good to pass up! Big mistake: Susan soon discovers that the brownstone is crawling with bedbugs . . . Or is it? She awakens every morning with fresh bites, but neither Alex nor their daughter Emma has a single welt. Exterminators search the property and turn up nothing. Neighbors insist the building is clean. Susan fears that she’s going mad—but as the mysteries deepen, a more sinister explanation presents itself: She may literally be confronting the bedbug problem from hell. An understated horror story filled with loving references to Rosemary’s Baby and other classic tales of urban paranoia, Bedbugs will keep your skin crawling into the wee hours of the night.

Ben H. Winters is the New York Times best-selling

author of Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters (Quirk, 2009). His most recent book, the YA novel The Secret Life of Ms. Finkleman (HarperCollins, 2010), was nominated for an Edgar Award. After ten years of living in Brooklyn, a battle with bedbugs sent him scurrying off to Boston.

from Bedbugs As she showered, Susan laughed at herself for freaking out about the teensy smudge on her pillowcase. She located her overreaction in a lifelong pattern of jumping to the worst possible conclusions. In college, for example, she had been certain on two separate occassions that she’d contracted Lyme disease, based on the scantest possible symptomalogy. In her twelfth week of carrying Emma, dazed from binging on alarmist websites, she’d frantically announced to Alex that hers was an ectopic pregnancy, a fact that proved mercifully fantastical.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: the trilogy
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and its prequel, Dawn of the Dreadfuls, were both New York Times best sellers, with a combined 1.3 million copies in print.
By steve Hockensmith Readers will witness the birth of a heroine in Dawn of the Dreadfuls—a thrilling prequel set four years before the horrific events of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. As our story opens, the Bennet sisters are enjoying a peaceful life in the English countryside. They idle away the days— until a funeral at the local parish goes strangely and horribly awry. Suddenly corpses are springing from the soft earth—and only one family can stop them. As the bodies pile up, we watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a naive young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. Along the way, two men vie for her affections: Will either man win the prize of Elizabeth’s heart? Or will their hearts be feasted upon by hordes of marauding zombies?

Elizabeth knows the proper course of action is to promptly behead her husband (and then burn the corpse, just to be safe). But when she learns of a miracle antidote under development in London, she realizes there may be one last chance to save her true love—and for everyone to live happily ever after.

the meowmorphosis
“One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that he had been changed into an adorable kitten.”
By franz kafka and coleridge cook The phenomenal success of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies inspired a massively popular literary-remix movement. Quirk Classics once again charts bold new territory, turning the monster-mash-up formula inside out to infuse Franz Kafka’s horrific masterpiece, “The Metamorphosis,” with the fuzziest, snuggliest, most adorable creatures possible: kittens! Gregor Samsa is a humble young man who supports his unemployed parents and teenage sister by working as a traveling fabric salesman. But his life goes strangely wrong in the very first sentence of The Meowmorphosis, when he wakes up late for work and discovers that he has inexplicably become an adorable kitten. His family must admit that, yes, their son is now so cute—but what good is cute when there are bills to pay? How can Gregor be so selfish as to devote his attention to a ball of yarn? And how dare he jump out the bedroom window to wander through Kafka’s literary landscape? Never before has a cat’s tale been so poignant, strange, and horrifyingly funny.

Human Cannonball
By anthony t. deBenedet, m.d., and lawrence J. cohen, Ph.d. All over the United States, physical play—what some might call “roughhousing”—is being marginalized. Gym classes are getting shorter. Recess periods are being eliminated. Some new schools don’t even have playgrounds. But Drs. Anthony T. DeBenedet and Lawrence Cohen are here to shake things up—literally! The Art of Roughhousing teaches parents how rough-and-tumble play can nurture close connections, solve behavior problems, boost confidence, and more. Drawing from gymnastics, martial arts, ballet, traditional sports, and even animal behavior, the authors present fifty illustrated activities for children and parents to enjoy together – everything from the “Sumo Deadlift” to the “Rogue Dumbo.” Arriving just in time for Father’s Day, The Art of Roughhousing is the perfect gift for rowdy dads everywhere.

150 Important, Embarrassing, and Slightly Neurotic Questions

Dozens of questions from moms-to-be:
• Can I ride a rollercoaster in my first trimester? • Can I get pregnant while I’m already pregnant? • If my baby only weighs 1 lb. why have I gained 15? • Is it safe to pump my own gas?

With answers!
By melissa Heckscher, with emily sikking, m.d. Expecting moms have plenty of weird and blush-worthy questions they’d rather not ask their doctors: “Is it okay to get a bikini wax?” “Can my baby cry in the womb?” “Why have I gained so much weight?” The Pregnancy Test turns these questions and others into a delightful multiple-choice guessing game, complete with carefully researched and informative responses to the wildest and most outrageous concerns. Authors Melissa Heckscher and Dr. Emily Sikking test readers’ knowledge of everything from fetal development to labor and delivery—and along the way, you’ll learn why pregnant women should stay off roller coasters and go easy on caffeine. The perfect gift for new moms (and a terrific refresher course for seasoned veterans), The Pregnancy Test answers everything you’ve ever wondered while expecting.

By david Borgenicht Is your child exploring strange new words? Or are you simply a Trekkie who needs a goofy gift for a fellow-fan friend? The Star Trek Book of Opposites will transport you together to an exciting voyage of silly educational fun, pairing colorful photographs of Star Trek’s classic heroes and aliens to introduce the concept of opposites through immediate visual humor. With the help of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy, you can teach children the meaning of happy and sad, open and closed, apart and together, and much more. The Star Trek Book of Opposites will make a great kitschy gift for Trekkies of all ages.
