Summary

Relive the romantic story of the engagement and marriage of one of America’s most endearing comic-strip heroines in this collection. 
 
“The comic-strip character Cathy, one of America’s most famous single career women, finally got married to her hapless longtime boyfriend, Irving—and on Valentine’s Day, no less. It’s the end of an era-or was it?” —USA Today 
 
“YES.” Rarely has one word, one positive response, resonated so loudly from the world's comic pages. But when leading lady Cathy finally took the plunge—after nearly 30 interminable years!—and accepted boyfriend Irving's marriage proposal, the occasion certainly deserved notice among Cathy fans around the globe. 
 
The Wedding of Cathy and Irving captures all the fun, magic, and—yes—the nerve-racking overanalyzing that filled the Cathy strips leading up to the big decision and the big day itself. This collection features some of the couple's most memorable moments from throughout their long relationship, but the spotlight shines most on the year that included the unexpected “ring find,” the proposal, the “YES,” and the frenetic wedding plans that Cathy and Mom both endure and perpetuate. 
 
The longest courtship in cartoon page history came to an end on February 5, 2005. But as The Wedding of Cathy and Irving shows, nothing is quite that simple in Cathy’s world. Whether she’s pondering pastor possibilities or worrying wedding dress selections to death, Cathy is unequalled in capturing the conundrums of modern women everywhere. It’s all Cathy, through and through.

    A girl, her grandmother, and half a dozen radioactive doughnuts ... 
    There's nothing that seventeen-year-old Kallie Grande-White hungers for more than to be a famous model like her mother -- except maybe actually food. But that's a small inconvenience, especially with the Model Middle America reality show holding auditions for the Next Top Heartland Teen Heartthrob Model right in Kallie's hometown. 
    Now that she has a chance to make her dream come true, Kallie is determined not to let anything stand in her way -- not her best frenemy, Amory Franklin, not her lacrosse-playing crush, Blake Turner, and especially not the new, awkward fat kid in her computer class. 
    And while the sudden appearance of her PhD-in-nuclear-nanotechnologist grandmother definitely throws Kallie off, the rest of the world will soon find out that it's not over until the fat lady sings -- or in this case, it's not over until Fatgirl sits on a terrorist's face. 
    You'll never look at doughnuts the same way again. 
    Perfect for anyone who's ever felt out of place in high school and never felt good enough for others to love you for who you are.  
    Fatgirl: Origins: Part One is the first in a new series featuring a satirical science fiction superhero take on growing up, PC culture, and diet culture from award-winning, genre-hopping author C. S. Johnson.

    A New York Times–bestselling, comical take on world history from the beloved New Yorker humorist. So, you think you know most of what there is to know about people like Nero and Cleopatra, Alexander the Great and Attila the Hun, Lady Godiva and Miles Standish? You say there’s nothing more to be written about Lucrezia Borgia? How wrong you are, for in these pages you’ll find Will Cuppy footloose in the footnotes of history. He transforms these luminaries into human beings, not as we knew them from history books, but as we would have known them Cuppy-wise: foolish, fallible, and very much our common ancestors. When it was first published in 1950, The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody spent four months on The New York Times bestseller list, and Edward R. Murrow devoted more than two-thirds of one of his nightly CBS programs to a reading from Cuppy’s historical sketches, calling it “the history book of the year.” The book eventually went through eighteen hardcover printings and ten foreign editions, proof of its impeccable accuracy and deadly, imperishable humor.

    When the bombastic Mr. Bickersdyke is initially introduced to Psmith, he is overwhelmingly underwhelmed.
