Nikki Grimes, Coretta Scott King Award winning author, and acclaimed illustrator Elizabeth Zunon's latest children's masterpiece creates an imagination-fueled and animal-filled journey to bedtime. "Has the feel of an all-time great bedtime picture book"—The New York Times It's bedtime. But Mommy's little one is not sleepy. He growls like a bear, he questions like an owl, he tosses his mane like a lion. He hunts for water like a sly wolf, and hides like a snake. Mommy needs to wrangle her sweet creature in bed so that the whole family can sleep. From tigers to squirrels to snakes, the little boy dodges around his bedtime, until he is tired enough to finally sleep. His imaginative animal friends weave their way through the illustrations, eventually joining him in curling up for the night. For those seeking children's books about diversity, this loving depiction of everyday shenanigans is sure to become a bedtime favorite. Bedtime for Sweet Creatures is an African American children's book that celebrates imagination, playful moments, and the love between a Black mother and child. "The mother's loving understanding is demonstrated by how she works with her child's rich imagination, never slipping into admonishment. As such, children will engage with the pajama-clad tot's antics and be soothed by the book's positive tone. A fabulous interpretation of an everyday battle."—Booklist, STARRED review

Attention : ceci n’est PAS un livre pour enfants ! Avis à tous les parents exténués par leurs adorables bambins refusant de s’endormir le soir : ce livre d’une « délicieuse obscénité » (Newsweek) est fait pour vous. Dodo fait le tigre au cœur de la jungle immense. Du haut de son arbre, même le moineau se tait. Ton doudou, tu peux te le mettre où je pense. Fais pas chier. Ferme les yeux. Fous-moi la paix. Qui n’a jamais rêvé de troquer les mièvreries des comptines enfantines pour une berceuse un peu moins hypocrite et un peu plus proche de la réalité ? Qui n’a jamais rêvé de laisser libre cours à son exaspération face à une progéniture rétive au sommeil ? Vous n’avez jamais osé parler ainsi à votre enfant ? Les auteurs de ce jouissif détournement de la littérature jeunesse l’ont fait pour vous. Ce qui n’était au départ qu’une pochade, imaginée par un jeune papa au bord de la crise de nerfs, s’est transformé en un véritable phénomène de société aux États-Unis : Dors et fais pas chier, non content de devenir le best-seller le plus inat-tendu de l’année (450 000 exemplaires vendus en 2 mois), a déclenché une déferlante de réactions et de débats dont toute la presse (New York Times, New Yorker, Washington Post, et en France, avant même sa parution, Courrier International, Rue89, Le Monde...) s’est fait l’écho.

On peut être Snob ou relativement ou positivement. Par Snobs positifs, j’entends ceux qui restent Snobs n’importe où ils se trouvent, qui ne cessent jamais de l’être du matin au soir, du berceau à la tombe, que la nature a faits Snobs par essence, tandis que d’autres ne font preuve de Snobisme que dans des cas particuliers ou en de certaines occurrences. Comme exemple, je citerai un homme qui jadis commit devant moi une action aussi abominable que celle dont je viens de faire mon mea culpa au précédent chapitre, et par laquelle je me proposais de dégoûter de ma société le colonel Snobley ; je veux parler de l’usage que je fis de ma fourchette en guise de cure-dent. Fruit d’une sélection réalisée au sein des fonds de la Bibliothèque nationale de France, Collection XIX a pour ambition de faire découvrir des textes classiques et moins classiques dans les meilleures éditions du XIXe siècle.

He was a respected cabinet-maker and councillor by day – but Deacon William Brodie changed into a sinister, thieving monster when darkness fell on the old city of Edinburgh. Cleverly employing his respectable reputation to access the richest members of society before stealing from them as a masked burglar, he used the resulting illicit money to fund yet another life – with five children and two mistresses. But Brodie – whose chilling story inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to create the classic tale of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde about a century later – came fatally unstuck when a captured accomplice informed on him. Then neither his ill-gotten gains nor his steel collar designed to cheat the hangman could save him... Author Rick Wilson offers a warts-and-all biography of Brodie, from his relatively innocent young years through to his public disgrace and execution... hanging on the very gallows he conceived himself.

In Death Before Bedtime, dashing P.R. man Peter Sargent is invited to the home of a venerable senator to help strategize his imminent run for president. On the night before he’s to announce, though, the senator is murdered in his bed. No longer needed as a political publicist, Sargent finds himself helping the police find the killer. He deftly navigates an eccentric cast of characters, all of whom are suspects: the rebellious daughter; the sycophantic aide; the grieving widow; and the power-hungry governor with his eye on the senator’s job. Somehow, between charming the senator’s daughter and glad-handing Washington’s elite, Sargent still manages to methodically put the pieces into place and sees that politics truly is a cut-throat business.
