With Dad, It’s Like That

Written by Nadine Brun-Cosme | Illustrated by Magali Le Huche | Albert Whitman | May 1, 2016

When Mom’s at the movies, Dad is in charge for the night. And from lumpy potatoes to bathwater that’s a little too cold, nothing is quite right.

“That’s not how Mom does it,” Clara tells Dad. But she soon learns that Dad’s ways of doing things aren’t so bad—in fact, she even gets two bedtime stories! Being with Dad has its benefits; as her dad explains, “With me, it’s like that!”

"Tender cartooning and lightly mischievous humor make this a pleasing tribute to fathers who are still kids at heart."--Publisher's Weekly

Liberty or Death: The French Revolution

In this provocative new history, Peter McPhee draws on a lifetime's study of eighteenth-century France and Europe to create an entirely fresh account of the world's first great modern revolution-its origins, drama, complexity, and significance. Was the Revolution a major turning point in French-even world-history, or was it instead a protracted period of violent upheaval and warfare that wrecked millions of lives? McPhee evaluates the Revolution within a genuinely global context: Europe, the Atlantic region, and even farther.
