Art and Max by David Wiesner

Art & Max on the NYT List!

David Wiesner's new book, Art & Max is #5 on the New York Times best-seller list!

9780618756636. $17.99

A gorgeous picture book about the misadventures of two lizard friends, one of whom is trying to learn how to paint. Executed primarily in gouache--a first for this artist--the illustrations have all the finesse and humor of Wiesner's award-winning work. Animal characters and a very brief text that consists entirely of dialogue make this a particularly lighthearted story, which nonetheless has something to say about friendship . . . and art.

The Gourmet Cookie Book: Your Ultimate Cookie Guide

Wondering what to bring to your in-laws for the holidays?
Nothing says it better than cookies!

For this stunning collection, the editors of Gourmet delved deep into their archives and selected the most delicious cookie for each year of the magazine’s sixty-eight-year existence. After marathon testing sessions and winnowing from thousands of recipes—many sent in by readers—they chose an amazing array, from the almond-scented French-style Cajun Macaroons, from the magazine’s beginnings in 1941, through Mocha Toffee Bars (1971), to the contemporary Glittering Lemon Sandwich Cookies.
