Ricky Gervais' Flanimals

Flanimals Pop-Up
"They're grotesque. They're absurd. They're so ugly they're cute - and they could only be spawned by the mind of award-winning comedian Ricky Gervais. From a planet far away, these bizarre and whimsical beasts - from the ferocious airborne Bletchling to the badly behaved Grundit to the fatally timid Splunge - spring to life in the droll and off-the-cuff prose of a writer who some may liken to a latter-day Edward Lear. Then again, some may find these grossly amusing creatures simply-gross. And whose fault is that? Just remember: don’t pull a tab just because you’ve been told to!"  - Candlewick Press.

Announcing a brand new idea in publishing books for babies: the completely durable, completely safe Indestructibles. Published on the same paper-like material used in shipping envelopes, Indestructibles are 100% baby-proof: chew-proof, drool-proof, and rip-proof. That's because Indestructibles not only will not tear or turn gummy with teething, but they are also completely washable.

Indestructibles are also beautiful, colorful and created just for baby. The printing material reproduces artwork with uncommon depth and no residual inkiness; the artwork, paintings by Kaaren Pixton is happy, each page a simple, colorful image of an animal or bird or insect against a rich, textured background. The effect is 3D-like and completely visual. There are no words, making each perfect for parents and babies to look at together, with mom or dad telling the story. (Workman Publishing)

The Page Turner carries the following titles:  Mama and Baby!, Creep! Crawl!, Flutter! Fly!, Plip-Plop Pond!, Wiggle! March!, Hickory Dickory Dock, and Hey Diddle Diddle.

What does The Page Turner have "in common" with Wave Hill?

Mark Twain leased the estate from 1901-1903.  Of winter at Wave Hill he wrote, "I believe we have the noblest roaring blasts here I have ever known on land; they sing their hoarse song through the big tree-tops with a splendid energy that thrills me and stirs me and uplifts me and makes me want to live always." 

The "Autobiograhy of Mark Twin/Volume I" is in stock @ The Page Turner.
