Seeing is believing: Photicular technology is a phenomenon. Three years--two titles, Safari and Ocean--and 723,000 copies in print. Through its innovative lenticular process, sliding lenses, and four-color video imagery, readers discovered the magic of animals bounding and leaping, and then came face to face with creatures of the sea as they undulate and sway. Now Dan Kainen, the creator of the Photicular technology, takes us even farther into places unknown by exploring the ends of the earth, the Arctic and Antarctic. Polar captures a land of extremes--remote, mysterious, and sparsely populated by creatures found nowhere else. Penguins waddle in their irresistibly happy way. A walrus lumbers across the snowy landscape. There's a polar bear with her cubs; a beluga whale breaching; a team of sled dogs sprinting directly at the viewer. And the miracle of the northern lights, shimmering like a silk rainbow. Science writer Carol Kaufmann brings the reader along on a voyage to the icy North and South Poles and writes a lively and informative essay for each image, including the animal's size, range, habitat, and other vital statistics. Polar captures a hauntingly beautiful yet threatened world, caught forever in moments of living motion.

A New York Times bestseller, Safari is a magical journey for the whole family. Readers, as if on African safari, encounter eight wild animals that come alive using never-before-seen Photicular technology. Each full-color image is like a 3-D movie on the page, delivering a rich, fluid, immersive visual experience. The result is breathtaking. The cheetah bounds. The gazelle leaps. The African elephant snaps its ears. The gorilla munches the leaves off a branch. It’s mesmerizing, as visually immediate as a National Geographic or Animal Planet special. Accompanying the images is Safari, the guide: It begins with an evocative journal of a safari along the Mara River in Kenya and interweaves the history of safaris. Then for each animal there is a lively, informative essay and an at-a-glance list of important facts. It’s the romance of being on safari—and the thrill of seeing the animals in motion— in a book unlike any other.

Take an eye-opening adventure to Australia through the magic of the Photicular series, which with its patented technology is not only a delight to behold but to sell, too, with over 2.6 million copies in print and sales in excess of 300,000 copies a year. In Outback discover the frilled-neck lizard racing along on its two hind feet like a half-terrifying, half-comical miniature dinosaur. A brightly color galah scraping its beak along a tree limb. Plus exotic peacock spiders who seem to dance in the trees, a too-cute Wombat who lumbers through the grass, and of course a red kangaroo, who hops along, its back legs and massive tail working in unison. Flipping through the pages of Outback is like a trip of a lifetime to down under. The lively text filled with interesting, insider facts is from Atlas Obscura associate editor Ella Morton, New Zealand-born and Australia-raised.

From the publisher of B. Kliban’s Cat, All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat, and Bad Cat, comes a new book that answers the question all cat lovers ask: How do I make my cat like me? 97 Ways to Make a Cat Like You is the perfect interactive guide to these mysterious, fickle, seemingly aloof—yet really, just particular—pets. Paired with a full-color photograph of friendly, extroverted, happy cats (in case you’ve forgotten what a cat looks like when he “likes” you), the 97 inspired, occasionally silly but always behaviorally-based tips and tricks prove that when a cat is treated right, he or she will respond in kind. Within reason. There’s the “Eye on the Ball”—record a tennis match or a Ping-Pong game on TV to play back for your cat when he needs a bit of exercise. “Cat Burrito”—wrap your cat in a towel, burrito-style, which is particularly good for anxious pets or trips to the vet. The “Boing, Boing!”—wind pipe cleaners around a pencil in a spiral shape to create springs. Carefully slide off the pencil so the spirals go “boing” when pressed. The classic “Tickle, Tickle”—tickle Kitty under her chin and softly say “gitchy, gitchy, gitchy” in your highest-pitched voice. And for the cat owner willing to go the distance, the “There’s No Business Like Show Business”—practice your best Ethel Merman by belting out favorite show tunes for your cat. Kitty won’t care if you’re off-key and she’ll enjoy the stimulation.
