Rolling Stone hails singer/songwriter Robert Earl Keen as "a writer with a novelist's eye for character and narrative detail comparable to forerunners like John Prine, Guy Clark, and Kris Kristofferson." In The Road Goes on Forever and the Music Never Ends, the master storyteller gives us fascinating glimpses into his own story through songs, personal memorabilia, and photographs that span his career from his student days at Texas A&M University to a recent concert at Austin's legendary Stubb's Bar-B-Que. The Road Goes on Forever and the Music Never Ends contains the lyrics for twenty-four of Keen's favorite songs, accompanied by one-liners that offer tantalizing hints at the motivations behind the songs ("Corpus Christi Bay" — "True? Yes, unfortunately.") Accompanying the lyrics is a wealth of material from Keen's personal archive—newspaper clippings, concert posters, and programs; journal entries and letters that show him in the process of everything from self-improvement ("Do something really nice for my sister") to raising money to record an album; and photos by and of family, friends, and fans. A very personal, beautifully designed songbook, scrapbook, and photo album, The Road Goes on Forever and the Music Never Ends is the essential book for everyone who loves the music of Robert Earl Keen. Also packaged in the book is a CD with printable sheet music for all twenty-four songs, which come from Keen's critically acclaimed albums Walking Distance, Gringo Honeymoon, What I Really Mean, A Bigger Piece of Sky, Farm Fresh Onions, Gravitational Forces, and Picnic.

A sweet (or is it salty?) Christmas story with heart, humor, and plenty of punny holiday cheer. Peanut is going over the river and through the woods to his grandmother's house for Christmas, but getting there is a food-filled adventure for this little nut! First he gets stuck in a traffic jam (make that a traffic jelly), then the bridge is closed so he has to take a (gravy) boat across the river, where he gets lost in a forest of (cookies shaped like) Christmas trees! But while the delays dismay his friends and family, Peanut embraces his role as the Merry Christmas Nut to cheer them up. In this heart-warming and humorous Christmas tale based on the real-life adventures of one peanut -- including ice-skating on popsicles and making snow angels in powdered-sugar snow -- our food friends know that the true meaning of Christmas is joining with our loved ones to celebrate the joy of being together. From the creator of Peanut Butter & Cupcake, tihs book is perfect for every family who wants to giggle together this holiday season. Praise for Terry Border's picture books: Merry Christmas, Peanut! "As with Border’s previous books, the real delights come from his carefully and humorously staged scenes."--Publishers Weekly "Kids will be mesmerized by Border’s clever photos, which imbue the peanuts with personality and a true sense of action. The message of kindness comes across with no overt religious references. Good nutty fun!"--School Library Journal Milk Goes to School "A quirky read-aloud with offbeat humor and fun images that young readers will appreciate. A good choice to address the challenges of making new friends at school."--School Library Journal Happy Birthday, Cupcake! "As in his earlier picture book, Border's characters are skillfully crafted food items with basic wire limbs arranged in simple landscapes....Preschoolers will be delighted with the visual mayhem."--Kirkus Reviews Peanut Butter & Cupcake: "Border’s witty food comedy will lure children who are hungry for clever visual entertainment."--Publishers Weekly "[Z]any creative photographs. [A] read-aloud hit."--School Library Journal
