Undercooked: How I Let Food Become My Life Navigator and How Maybe That's a Dumb Way to Live (Hardcover)

My family needed some new recipes injected into our rotation - but I hadn’t found one that fit our needs until this one arrived at our store. Of the meals I’ve made so far, the cook times were fairly quick, and each one didn’t feature a lot of ingredients. These are meals you can make during a busy week, and it’ll expose your family to lots of cuisines.
"Sara Gran's Come Closer will have you questioning Amanda's reality and mind along with your own, and it will scare the pants off you. It is a perfect horror novel."
--Paul Tremblay, author of The Cabin at the End of the World
"LaValle.. deftly combines Western, suspense, supernatural, and horror--his prose is unfussy and plainspoken, which makes it easier to seamlessly skate across genres. But LaValle's fluidity when it comes to style is balanced by a focused thematic vision: Through Adelaide (and that steamer trunk), he explores isolation and division across race, within families, and through communities...[The] novel overall is a winning blend of brains and (occasionally violent) thrills"
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"A wondrous achievement as both an autobiographical discussion and as a piece of the comics medium. The skill and ingenuity of her visual storytelling approach is staggering and awe-inspiring. Thorogood's courageous honesty is supported by her hilarious deadpan humor and then tied all together by her absolutely insane artistic vision. Centre of the Earth is an important work as a discussion of trauma, depression, and the hope that can keep one moving forward. This is an absolute must-read, and without a doubt one of the best comic creations of recent years." --Monkeys Fighting Robots
With Teacher Appreciation week happening in May - this is the perfect gift for the teacher in your child's life. Local authors Frank Murphy and Barbara Dan (both Council Rock teachers), write about the power of teachers and just how special a role they play in all of our lives.
A great middle grade graphic novel for the reluctant reader. This autobiography from author/illustrator Dan Santat tells a wonderful story about his trip to Europe during the awkward middle school years. Perfect for fans of 'Smile', 'Nat Enough', or 'Emme and Friends' series - my 11 year old loved this one!
