From her upbringing in Chicago, to attending Juilliard in New York, to her travels abroad, Molly Yeh has eaten her way through life witha diary and camera at hand. In 2013 she and her now-husband moved from New York City to his family’s fifth generation farm on the North Dakota/Minnesota border. What followed were stories of learning intricate family recipes, throwing picnics in the snow, and creating countless whimsical cakes in her farm kitchen. Fans started flocking to her blog, and magazines, food Web sites,and other media outlets started taking note, too. Yeh won blog awards by the handful, and a
mega-blogger was born.
In addition to more than 120 recipes, Molly on the Range is filled with Yeh’s signature, beautiful photography and essays about her new Midwestern life written in the quirky, friend-to-friend voice that her many fans know and love.

A Picture book by Joyce Sidman
Illustrated by Beth Krommes

Hardcover, $17.99. ISBN: 9780547979175
In a spare text that reads as pure song and illustrations of astonishingly beautiful scratchboard art, Sidman and Krommes remind us that sometimes, if spoken from the heart, wishes really can come true.
"Throughout, Krommes’s illustrations do the narrative work, and a series of wordless spreads at book’s end provides a sweet balance to the front matter’s opening scenes, slowly easing the reader out of this mesmerizing book." — Horn Book, STARRED review
There are planes to fly and buses to catch, but a small child wishes for a different sort of day in this striking picture book. When clouds gather and heavy flakes begin to fall, her invocation comes true. As a too-busy world falls silent, a family revels in the freedom and peace of a snow day.
