How do you follow a million-copy bestseller? With Hungry Hyenas, Puppy Snap, Game Warden, Little Fish, Brothers & Sisters. With old favorites like Catch the Cat, Safari, Creature Feature, Woof, Gorilla War. And classics with a twist-Girl Power, Amazon, Feed the Kitty, Jungle Rummy. A new book from the author of the enormously successful The Book of Cards for Kids, with over 1.1 million copies in print, Card Games for Little Kids offers over 30 card games specially designed for the littlest members of the family. They-along with their siblings, friends, and parents-will delight in these extra-fun, extra-noisy games that require barking, roaring, shouting, slapping, and sometimes even jumping around like a monkey. Packaged with the two-color illustrated book is a customized, oversized, four-color 40-card deck that features ten different animal „suits” of a mother, father, brother, and sister. The illustrations are bright and cheerful-skateboarding elephants, jump-roping rhinos, giraffes, tigers, and other animals-and all but irresistible. Deal ‘em.
Can we truly know the one we love? In this painfully candid book Marcel Proust looks straight into the green eye of every lover’s jealous struggle. He broods on why we are driven to try possess one another, how jealousy can outlive death, and whether we can ever reclaim those careless days of first love. There is no greater chronicler of jealousy’s darkest fears and destructive suspicions than Proust.
Every day we make decisions on topics ranging from the personal investments we select to the schools we pick for our children to the foods we eat to the causes we champion. Unfortunately, as authors Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein astutely observe, we don’t always choose well. The reason, the authors explain, is that we all are susceptible to cognitive biases and blunders that make us human, fallible, and prone to error. Thaler and Sunstein invite us to enter an alternative world, one that recognizes our humanness as a given. They show that the way we think can be used to our advantage: it is possible to design environments that make it more likely for us to act in our own interests. Using colourful examples from all aspects of life, Thaler and Sunstein demonstrate how ‘choice architecture’ can be established to nudge us in beneficial directions without restricting the full menu of choices available to us. Nudge offers a unique new take, from neither the left nor the right, on many current issues, and is one of the most engaging and provocative books to come along in years.
Mit Müh und Not konnten Jakob und die besonderen Kinder aus der Zeitschleife, der Insel Cairnholm, vor ihren Feinden fliehen. Nun sind sie im England der 1940er Jahre gestrandet, immer noch verfolgt und ohne Beistand von Miss Peregrine, die sich nicht mehr in ihre Menschengestalt verwandeln kann. Um Miss Peregrine zu retten, brauchen die Kinder eine andere Magierin. Gerüchteweise lebt eine in London, und so machen sie sich auf den gefährlichen Weg in die zerbombte Stadt. Dort angekommen, finden sie schließlich Miss Wren und glauben schon, gerettet zu sein. Doch ausgerechnet hier, in ihrer vermeintlichen Zuflucht, erwartet sie der größte Verrat.
Looking back to Henry Miller’s bohemian life in 1930s Paris, when he was an obscure, penniless writer, Quiet Days in Clichy is a love letter to a city. As he describes nocturnal wanderings through shabby Montmartre streets, cafés and bars, sexual liaisons and volatile love affairs, Miller brilliantly evokes a period that would shape his entire life and oeuvre.
