What Is Punk?WhatIsPunk
by Eric Morse
illustrations by Anny Yi

A wonderfully illustrated children’s history of punk rock, from a progressive/idealistic perspective.

What Is Punk? is a must-read pop-culture primer for children—an introduction to the punk revolution, recreated in vivid 3-D clay illustrations and told through rhyming couplets.

From London’s Clash and Sex Pistols to the Ramones’ NYC protopunk, from Iggy Pop to the Misfits, this volume depicts some of our culture’s seminal moments and iconic characters. A delightful read for kids and parents alike, illustrated in a truly unique visual style,What Is Punk? lays the groundwork for the next generation of little punks.

What Is Punk? is available at Independent Bookstores everywhere via IndieBound, from our website, and wherever books are sold.

Seriously, You Have to eatSYHTE
by Adam Mansbach
illustrations by Owen Brozman

The 100% kid-friendly, G-rated version of the New York Times best-selling parents’ book, You Have to F**king Eat.

On the heels of the New York Times best seller You Have to F**king Eat (a sequel to the worldwide mega–best seller Go the F**k to Sleep), now comes the version that is entirely appropriate to read to—and with—children. While the message and humor will be similar to the adult version, there will, of course, be no profanity whatsoever.

Step aside Green Eggs and Ham, there’s a new, 21st-century book in town that will compel all finicky children to eat!

Seriously, You Have to Eat? is available at Independent Bookstores everywhere via IndieBound, from our website, and wherever books are sold.
