Children's Books: ‘Bear and Bee’ and ‘Have You Seen My New Blue Socks?’ Sergio Ruzzier’s illustrations always manage to be soft and fluffy and kind toward children — without slipping into saccharine gauziness. In two new picture books, one written and illustrated by Ruzzier, the other written by Eve Bunting, Ruzzier’s spare pen-and-ink pictures charmingly enliven animal stories in just the way preschoolers like.

Children's Books: ‘999 Frogs Wake Up’ and ‘Frog Song’ To speak of an insanely gorgeous book about frogs would seem to pose a contradiction in terms. To note two such books just seems silly. Yet here they are: “Frog Song,” the latest from Brenda Z. Guiberson and Gennady Spirin (“Life in the Boreal Forest”), and “999 Frogs Wake Up,” a sequel of sorts to 2011’s “999 Tadpoles,” by the Japanese team of Ken Kimura and Yasunari Murakami. More

Within an hour of its release in August by jihadists, it had been seen around the world, spread by social networks and amplified by traditional media. YouTube, Facebook and other major online content distributors quickly tried to purge the worst segments from their networks, yet the images kept resurfacing.
John Cleese’s memoir is just about everything one would expect of its author — smart, thoughtful, provocative and above all funny — but it is not what his most ardent fans probably have been expecting, a blow-by-blow account of the making of his most notable work: “Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” the many films made by the Monty Python troupe and the “Fawlty Towers” situation comedy.
Most Americans are aware that France helped us win independence from Britain, but few appreciate the huge influence France continued to have here during our nation’s formative years. In its infancy, the United States was a scarecrow of a country — mostly farms and a few hamlets scattered among diverse, semi-independent states — with meager economic development.
