  • A little under a century ago in a small suburb of London, a boy by the name of Christopher Robin was born. As a child he was gifted a stuffed teddy bear, and together the two were the inspiration for the beloved children’s books about Winnie-the -Pooh written by his father A.A. Milne.

  • We’re off to see The Wizard! The wonderful Wizard of Oz. Or should we say the wonderful adaptations of Oz? The timeless classic The Wizard of Oz opened nationally in theaters seventy-seven years ago today. To celebrate this 1939 film and the L. Frank Baum novel it was based on, here are a few of our favorite film and TV adaptations of The Wizard of Oz.

  • We've been listening to a lot of Martha & the Vendellas in this major heat wave. When the weather is this warm, the last thing we want to do is work.

  • Here at Quirk Books we’re…stuck in the middle with you! It’s National Middle Child Day today and to celebrate we’re talking about our favorite middle children of literature. So settle in and pay attention to us. (Please.)

  • The first Sunday in August is Sisters’ Day, which like anything involving family can go many ways. We're celebrating with literature, because, of course. Read up on our favorite literary sisters and their imagined letters, notes, and messages—from dip pens to drunk emailing!
