From the creator of the bestselling series The Last Kids on Earth! In this second installment of Cosmoe’s wild space adventures, the fearless hot-dog-selling crew take their wares to the circus only to discover things are not as they seem! Nothing goes better with the circus than a good wiener! So, when Neon Wiener is offered a position as the official food cart for Crostini’s Cosmic Carnival and Wonder Circus Train, Humphree is over the moon. Cosmoe feels more skeptical that the offer may be too good to be true, but after he unexpectedly demonstrates incredible monster-taming skills in a heroic display, he’s hooked. The circus-goers can’t get enough Galactic Hot Dogs, and between the death-defying acts and highly unusual employees, the carnival offers endless entertainment for Cosmoe, Humphree, and Princess Dagger. But they soon discover there’s more to the glitz and showmanship than meets the eye—in fact, the hot-dog-loving crew may be in more danger than ever before. And getting to the bottom of the circus’s secrets may mean confronting Cosmoe’s troubled past.

Octopus is a real-life thriller that tells the inside story of an audacious hedge fund fraud and the wild search, by a colorful cast of rogues and schemers, for a “secret market” beneath the financial market we all know. Sam Israel was a man who seemed to have it all – until the hedge fund he ran, Bayou, imploded and he became the target of a nationwide manhunt. Born into one of America’s most illustrious trading families, Israel was determined to strike out on his own. So after apprenticing with one of the greatest hedge fund traders of the 1980’s, Sam founded his own fund and promised his investors guaranteed profits. With the proprietary computer program he’d created, he claimed to be able to predict the future. But his future was already beginning to unravel. After suffering devastating losses and fabricating fake returns, Israel knew it was only a matter of time before his real performance would be discovered, so when a former black-ops intelligence operative told him about a “secret market” run by the Fed, Israel bet his last $150 million on a chance to make billions. Thus began his year-long adventure in “the Upperworld” -- a society populated by clandestine bankers, shady European nobility, and spooks issuing cryptic warnings about a mysterious cabal known as the Octopus. Whether the “secret market” was real or a con, Israel was all in – and as the pressures mounted and increasingly sinister violence crept into his life, he struggled to break free of the Octopus’ tentacles.

Dude, you're a dad now! Picking up where From Dude to Dad left off, author and founder of the popular Diaper Dude parenting brand Chris Pegula dives into the first two years of parenting and furthers his deeply held belief that you don't have to lose yourself when you become a father. Once again written in Pegula's everyman voice and filled with humorous takes on fatherhood from the front lines, the book is an easy-to-read resource for new dads, combining hard-won lessons learned, pitfalls to avoid, and practical advice from a dude who hasn't lost his identity (or his sanity). Filled with useful information, hilarious stories of dad madness, a little psychology and science, and engaging sidebars, Diaper Dude covers everything from bonding, babyproofing, and when you'll have sex again to toddlerhood, tantrums, and tag-teaming with your partner to cover all the bases while staying (somewhat) sane. From the Trade Paperback edition.
