Colorists and horse lovers of all ages will treasure this splendid tribute to horses of the world. Illustrator John Green, a specialist in realistic depictions of animals, excels at drawing horses. This collection of his best equine images features draft animals as well as sporting creatures -- thoroughbreds, mavericks, coach horses, show horses, polo ponies, and many other magnificent steeds. Informative captions offer accurate background information on each image.
Sandra Boynton and Michael Ford--the team behind Rhinoceros Tap, the Grammy-nominated #1 New York Times bestseller Philadelphia Chickens, and other toe-tapping book-and-CD sets--bring great words, great music, great performers to children and vintage children alike.
Put a nickel in the jukebox, assuming you can locate a jukebox, and that you remember what a nickel is. Here's legendary Beach Boy Brian Wilson singing lead and 10-part harmonies on "Speed Turtle." The incomparable Neil Sedaka crooning "Your Nose." B. B. King brings you a wistful "One Shoe Blues," Gerry and the Pacemakers offer "Mersey Lullaby," and Broadway great Patti LuPone sings--what else--the "Rabbit Tango." And then there's the hit single from Boynton's Your Personal Penguin sung by the impossibly cute Davy Jones of The Monkees. I mean jeepers, even Sha Na Na is here.
And OH The book Boynton has filled it with all things 50s and 60s. And, well, golly, it's so happy and colorful and just terrific, Mister Grab your saddle shoes, plunk two straws into that swell chocolate malt, and let's twist again like we did last century. 119,000 copies in print.

Meet Mike, a brave New York City firefighter. You can follow him through a typical workday as you color large, clearly drawn pictures of him and his partners.
At the start of Mike's day, he's met at the firehouse door by Chips, the company's pet Dalmation. He then greets Kevin and Patty, who are making lunch in the kitchen; checks important lifesaving gear; and later, when the fire alarm goes off, runs outside to stop traffic so the big engine can safely pull out of the building and head for the fire. At the end of the day, the entire company relaxes in the kitchen.
Thirty exciting, ready-to-color black-and-white illustrations are accompanied by captions.
