Have You Ever Seen an Octopus with a Broom?
Have You Ever Seen an Octopus with a Broom? compares human and animal tools and reveals surprising facts about how animals clean house, fish for food and even play percussion. Maybe you’ve never seen an octopus with a broom – but these animals use jets of water like a broom to sweep out leftovers after a meal, and also sweep sand and small stones out of their den to make it bigger. The Spin It! activity at the end of the book will provide hours of educational enjoyment. Each informational picture book in the Have You Ever Seen series uses lighthearted human-animal comparisons to teach primary-level children about animals.

Night Sounds
The animals in the rain forest desperately want to get some sleep, but there’s a baby… something in a banana crate that just won’t be soothed, even though its every request is promptly fulfilled. Finally, Tiger fetches the baby’s mother, and the baby is revealed to be a very cute elephant—one who also has sound advice for some nearby, similarly vexed human babies.
Author: Javier Sobrino, trans. from Spanish by Elisa Amado | Illustrator: Emilio Urberuaga | Ages: 3 to 6

Mathemagic! offers up entertaining number-themed tricks that young readers will have hours of fun performing, and which require only simple props like dice and beans, some basic math concepts, and an excellent imagination. These tricks will provoke more than a few astonished reactions from friends and classmates. Each trick – whether based on simple multiplication or binary numbers – gets a thorough, step-by-step demonstration, followed by an explanation on the next page which includes some of the history behind these tricks.

Ankylosaur Attack
This mind-blowing feast for the eye uses photo-realistic, computer-generated images to illustrate what dinosaurs might have looked like in their natural environment. Complementing the extraordinary images is an exciting, scientifically accurate story about a young ankylosaur (a plant-eating, heavy-plated dinosaur) living along the banks of a grassy lake. When he encounters an old ankylosaur, he gently endeavours to make contact, only to be rebuffed. Then a T. rex attacks, and the youngster knows the old dinosaur is in grave danger. Will the T. rex triumph? It looks that way, until the young ankylosaur comes to the rescue, tail club swinging.

Pterosaur Trouble
Nature photographs and digital images replicate a prehistoric world in this companion to Ankylosaur Attack, which focuses on the flying pterosaur Quetzalcoatlus. Tense narration follows the dinosaur, as Quetzalcoatlus flies, fishes, and encounters a pack of ferocious Saurornitholestes that attack him: For every Saurornitholestes knocked aside, two more jumped onto the struggling giant. The exquisite detail of skin, feathers, and scales, in combination with crisp landscape photographs, make these dinos seem remarkably real.
