PaperbackMaking delicious meals doesn’t have to be complicated, time-consuming, or expensive. You can create satisfying dishes using just four ingredients, or even less! In this new and revised edition of the bestselling 4-Ingredient Diabetes Cookbook, author Nancy Hughes has added more than 25 new recipes that can be made in a snap!

PaperbackWe all want to be loved. The good news? Everyone falls in love, most of us more than once. Falling in love is innate and inevitable, and the process seems the same for all people in all places in all times. In True Love, the first book on love and the brain written by a neurologist, you’ll learn what actually happens in your brain while seeking love, and well after. Dr. Nour details, in plain English, how our brain chemicals and genes cause love to happen in four distinct phases. He explores the genetic, chemical and behavioral aspects of each phase of love. In this book, you will discover how ‘Falling in Love’ is not ‘True Love’. You will find the answers to many questions, such as: – Why do people who has fallen in love do things that some may deem “crazy”? – What attracts us to certain people and not others? – Why do arranged marriages have a lower divorce rate? – Is falling out of love really “the end?” – Are certain behaviors exhibited by a mate that aren’t actually love, yet appear to be? – What is the difference between love in heterosexuals and homosexuals? – Could love be a disease or an addiction? – Are sex and love really the same? – Is there anything we can do to grow our current love into True Love? – Why do we always marry the wrong mismatching partner? – Can marriage of convenience result in True Love? Is there a biological reason for this? – Has love changed over the centuries? – Why do we need love? – Can understanding “falling out of love” help reduce divorce rates? Dr. Nour hopes that this information, rooted in science, will better inform your future decisions and expectations in relationships, ultimately leading to unions that are more genuine, rewarding, meaningful and permanent. Whether you’re in a relationship, still looking for that special someone, or want insights to make your next relationship last for a lifetime, you’ll find True Love a vital and eye-opening resource.

HardcoverKid Crazy Carlson thirsts for adventure in the far-off and bustling City of Ever. One day he meets a robot that warns him of the grumpy Kilowatt King that rules there―who forces people to sing for him. Despite the robot’s warning, Kid decides to make the voyage to the city and the two travel in a car made of bread through candy bar men, robot travelers, and dancing elephants to reach their destination. Finally, Kid stands before the sour King Kilowatt and teaches him a lesson in manners: the value of the word “please.”

Project Droid #1 & #2It’s a pretty normal day for Logan Applebaum—until his inventor mother announces that she’s built him a new robot cousin. And Java may be really smart, but he’s also going to be a major handful. No one can know about his secret. This is going to be a long school year.

With the third grade science fair coming up, though, Logan thinks maybe a super computer cousin could come in handy and he’ll finally have a shot at beating the nosey Silverspoon twins who win at everything.

But when Sherry and Jerry steal Java as their partner, and then start suspecting something is up with the new kid, can Logan think fast before this crazy experiment becomes an epic disaster?

In Science No Fair! internationally bestselling author, Nancy Krulik and her incredibly talented daughter, Amanda Burwasser, team up to introduce a new comedic pair that combines the literalness of Amelia Bedelia with a wacky modern edge, making for hours of laughter.

When Mom tells Logan that Java is joining his soccer team, the Purple Wombats, he’s not thrilled. It’s a lot of work teaching his new robot cousin how to act like a human—and keeping him out of trouble—and Logan needs a break.

Still, being programmed for success means that Java’s also great at scoring. He might just turn the Wombats into a championship team, beating Sherry and Jerry Silverspoon and their Red Polar Bears . . . if he’d just let the other kids play, too. After being replaced as the Wombats’ MVP, Logan’s had enough.

But when Java gets wet and goes on the fritz, can the whole team—even a short-circuiting Java—come together to score the winning goal?

The second in a fantastically funny new chapter book series by internationally bestselling author Nancy Krulik and her daughter, Amanda Burwasser, Soccer Shocker is destined to win tons of fans.

Growing Up Gourmet is a total guide to your baby and toddler’s diet. Jennifer Carlson built her business, Baby Gourmet, into one of the top-selling organic baby food brands in North America—and she’ll show you how to make nutritious, delicious, home-cooked meals that will complement your child’s development schedule and make everyone else in the family happy too. Her mouth-watering recipes reduce picky eating and introduce your baby to the wide world of textures and tastes, from veggies such as kale and fennel, to grains such as amaranth and spelt, to herbs and spices such as turmeric and ginger that will help you avoid added sugar, salt, colorings, and preservatives.

As a busy mother of two, Jen understands that it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by feeding struggles and the sheer mass of parenting information, not to mention the challenges of finding time to make wholesome, flavorful meals from scratch. In this essential guide, she clearly lays out everything you need to know about feeding your baby: when to wean; how to get the right nutrients at every stage; how to deal with finicky eating habits; which foods will treat gassiness, colic, constipation, low iron, or poor sleep; and how to adapt your special dietary considerations for your child. As daunting as it may seem, there are shortcuts and techniques to make it all manageable, whether you’re cooking for a single little one or a family of five and counting.

She published some of these images of airborne canines digitally, and they quickly went viral with features in The Guardian, Huffington Post, and on the Today show.

The delightful result prompted her to capture other dogs from this hilarious and unique perspective. Featuring over 120 airborne dogs of all breeds and sizes—from the tiniest of Chihuahuas to full-grown Siberian Huskies and German Shepherds—Flying Dogs is the delightful, swooping sensation that will have dog lovers laughing out loud and begging for more!

In Steven Universe, the world is protected from evil by the Crystal Gems, a group of intergalactic warriors who draw their power from special magic gem stones.

As Steven tries to figure out the secrets to using his gem, he spends his days in Beach City doing activities with the other Crystal Gems, whether it's helping them save the universe or just hanging out.

Throughout the first season it is slowly revealed that the four Crystal Gems in Beach City are the remnants of a once great interplanetary civilization of Gems. Most of the locations visited by the Gems are ruined shrines or locations that were once of great importance to Gem culture, but have become derelict and fallen into disrepair during hundreds of years of neglect. The second half of the season deals with this theme in greater depth, revealing that the Gems are cut off from their home world and that the monsters and artifacts they encounter throughout their adventures are actually Gems who have lost the ability to maintain rational humanoid forms.

Slugterra: Slug Fu Showdown
Eli has added some awesome new slugs to his arsenal: the ELEMENTALS. But the Elemental Slugs are ancient, extremely powerful, and temperamental, and Eli can’t control them. Junjie, the newest member of the Shane Gang, has the solution: Eli must learn SLUG FU, the ancient and mysterious form of slugslinging that Junjie mastered when he lived in the Eastern Caverns. The Slug Fu training won’t be easy, and it’s something Eli and Junjie must do alone. That means leaving Kord, Trixie and Pronto behind—and all of Eli’s slugs, too! Things get even tougher when Eli’s training is cut short by a mysterious new villain with a seriously insane plan to rock Slugterra to its core. The villain needs only one thing to unleash his evil plan: the Elemental Slugs! Luckily, Eli left them with the rest of the Shane Gang, so they are safe…or they would be, if Pronto hadn’t annoyed them so much that they hopped off and ran away. As Kord, Trixie and Pronto struggle to keep the wily Elementals out of the wrong hands, Eli and Junjie engage in a showdown with the madman before he can reduce the 99 caverns to rubble!
