Winter 2012: Books I’m Working On

The late Fall and Winter is a strange time in publishing, at least for me. Nothing is coming out until mid-January or so, but we’re still busy building lists and pitching books. Then we go on vacation, come back, and wrangle everything together.

It’s a harried, hectic routine… but I love it anyway.

So! Here’s what I’m busy emailing bloggers about right now. If you see something you’re interested in (you should!), drop me a line at eric@quirkbooks.com.

The Slither Sisters: Tales From Lovecraft Middle School #2 by Charles Gilman

In The Slither Sisters, we follow Robert and his friends deeper into the world of Lovecraft Middle School—and its bizarre parallel dimension, the Tillinghast Mansion. Along the way they discover a pair of mysterious twin sisters who may not be exactly what they seem. Can they convince the principal that something is wrong before it’s too late?

Every volume in the Lovecraft Middle School series is fully illustrated and features an original lenticular portrait on the cover. Display them on bookshelves—and then watch the cover characters morph into monsters as you pass by!

Who’s On First? by Bud Abbot and Elvis Costello

“Who’s on first. What’s on second. I Don’t Know’s on third.” One of the classic comedy sketches of all time is now transformed into a priceless picture book—and it’s a great read for kids of all ages. Follow the mistaken identities, confusion, and lots of laughs as Rabbit and Bear act out this scene.

The book will appeal to Abbott and Costello fans, baseball fans, and anyone who enjoys funny banter-driven picture books. Illustrated in full color with slightly retro stylized illustrations.

WILLIAM “BUD” ABBOTT and LOU COSTELLO (born Louis Francis Cristillo) performed together as Abbott and Costello, an American comedy duo whose work on stage, radio, film, and television made them the most popular comedy team during the 1940s and 1950s.
