Though the best part about this news might just be the adorable photos we were sent. Claudia Bitz, an editor at Goldmann, and the folks at Random House Germany made a handful of amigurumi projects from the book, and sent some pictures over to us.
With the Fall season upon us, it's hard for me not to think about blustery Autumn afternoons fishing with my uncles in New Jersey.
When the leaves started to change, that meant putting on thick awkward fishing vests and standing patiently along the shorelines of various lakes. Sometimes, it meant casting fly fishing lines across rippling streams, the bait dancing over the water. We always had fishing poles though, and seldom found ourselves in a situation where we'd need a makeshift net like this.
But hey, now I know how to make one. And so do you, thanks to the Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Travel. Read on for some helpful tips from Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht. Because it's always good to prepare for the worst.

Listen. We're a company that loves dressing up just-because for our office parties (ie: piggies back in March), so you better believe we absolutely adore Halloween here at Quirk. It's a special time of year when the things we love the most, from scary monsters to heaps of candy, are celebrated in a very public way.
So to help pave the way towards Halloween, we'll have some fun excerpts to get you properly prepared every Friday.
First up? Some Witches' Brew from Witch Craft by Margaret McGuire and Alicia Kachmar. Blood orange punch? Yes please.
Our talented team of designers (Doogie! Katie! Andie!) will showcase a gallery of alternative book covers, showing actual designs that didn't make the cut and totally new works inspired by older titles. Guests can look forward to interacting with our team and can expect a number of fun giveaways. Posters? Yup. Books? You bet.
And thanks to our BFFs DrinkPhilly, books aren't the only thing ready to be consumed that night. There will be plenty of free nibbles and beverages at the DrinkPhilly HQ, and possibly some live music. Word on the street is the founder of DrinkPhilly plays a mean bass.
