Happy Birthday, Cupcake!
by: Philomel Books
Product rating: 4.5 with 4 reviews
From the creator of Peanut Butter & Cupcake comes a birthday book starring everyone’s favorite dessert!
What’s a cupcake to do when she needs to plan her birthday party? In this hilarious, kid-friendly homage to food and birthdays, Cupcake runs through tons of ideas while her best friend, Blueberry Muffin, finds reasons why they won’t work: Soup gets seasick; Donut melts in the sun; someome might get squashed during musical chairs; and Cupcake is not very good at limbo (her icing might get sliced off!). Just as Cupcake is ready to crumble, Blueberry Muffin has one last idea that just might save the day.
With laugh-out-loud visual gags (like a band made up of beans–the musical fruit, of course), this book is sure to put a birthday smile on any kid’s face (and on adult faces as well).
Praise for Happy Birthday, Cupcake!:
“As in his earlier picture book, Border’s characters are skillfully crafted food items with basic wire limbs arranged in simple landscapes….Preschoolers will be delighted with the visual mayhem.”–Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Peanut Butter & Cupcake:
“Border’s witty food comedy will lure children who are hungry for clever visual entertainment.”–Publishers Weekly
“[Z]any creative photographs. [A] read-aloud hit.”–School Library Journal

Take My Spouse, Please: How to Keep Your Marriage Happy, Healthy, and Thriving by Following the Rules of Comedy
Product rating: 5.0 with 2 reviews
This humorous take on marriage shows you how the true keys to marital bliss and success are—surprisingly—the same as the cardinal rules of comedy.
In love, as in comedy, timing is everything. One bad night doesn’t mean it’s time to quit. Have patience: great marriages, like a successful comedy career, take time. Turns out the cardinal rules of comedy have an uncanny resemblance to the “rules” of building a strong marriage. With humor and grace, Dani Klein Modisett shares a map for navigating your marriage through rough patches, bad jokes, and even nights when you bomb.
Take My Spouse, Please shows how thirteen tried-and-true rules of comedy, when applied to marriage, keep you and your spouse connected, enjoying each other, and getting through tough times. Along with anecdotes from well-known comedians, comedy writers, marriage counselors, and long-term spouses, Dani delivers the core premise: humor matters.

How to be Happy: Not a Self-Help Book. Seriously
by: Central Avenue Publishing
Product rating: 5.0 with 3 reviews
Central Avenue Publishing is proud to publish another book by the widely acclaimed poet Iain S. Thomas. As many have noted on various social media platforms, there have been some issues that have led to the delayed release of this book. For this, we apologise and hopefully the content of the book will clarify the circumstances surrounding this delay. We feel we should also point out that this is not technically a self-help book, but it does contain some poignant prose, poetry and stories which may or may not lead you to happiness. Mostly, it is the rather unfortunate chronicle of a man’s attempt to write the book he’s promised his publisher, no matter the cost to his sanity.
