OUT TODAY! How To Get Married

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY says it's "Stylish and Witty" SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL says it's "bound to be a hit with the Fancy Nancy Crowd" KIRKUS says "aspiring brides and starry-eyed flower girls alike will be enchanted" I say quick better go and get it before it sells out. Here's the perfect book for kids who play pretend and throw mock weddings, and also for grown-ups who are actual brides-to-be. Our know-it-all narrator is at it again, in this companion to the New York Times bestselling How To Be A Baby... By Me, The Big Sister. Take it from the six-year-old “bride-to-be”: No one will marry you if you don’t ever brush your hair and it looks like a bird’s nest back there. And never get married when it’s dark, because you might not see the groom, and marry the wrong person. When you have found your Own True Love, you must ask permission. “Can I marry you please?” you say. “Yes, please,” he says. More here. What they said about HOW TO BE A BABY: “This book is adorable, original, well-illustrated and fabulous.” THE NEW YORK TIMES “An ultra charming picture book” A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK "One of the funniest books of the year" RADIO 4, Front Row "A psychologically sound picture book" THE LONDON OBSERVER "one of my favorites" THE BOOKSELLER A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR

road to the heart

"There is a road from the eye to the heart that does not go through the intellect. Men do not quarrel about the meaning of sunsets; they never dispute that the hawthorn says the best and wittiest thing about the spring." - G K Chesteron, from A Defence of Heraldry
