Cat vs Human (4 Book Series)
From Book 1:

Yasmine Surovec began sketching her clever and sarcastic Cat Versus Human cartoons as a way to relax and unwind. Soon, her popular blog at catversushuman.blogspot.com began receiving as many as 12,000 hits per day, with a number of posts going viral and appearing on popular Web sites such as The Huffington Post and I Can Has Cheezburger. Now, a selection of 100 Cat Versus Human strips--many never previously published--can be found inside this inaugural collection of Cat Versus Human.

Proud owners of Felis domesticus will instantly recognize Surovec's keen insights into cat behavior and all of the characteristic intricacies of the cat-human relationship, such as the allure of an empty cardboard box trumping an expensive battery-operated toy or how a cat's favorite nap spot might as easily be inside a litter box, on top of clean laundry, or directly on top of a human face. Cat Versus Human also encourages an affectionate look at your once-was-in-mint-condition midcentury modern sofa that is now being unstuffed one cat claw at a time.

Lyrik Limericks & Co (Reihe in 2 Bänden)
Aus Band 1: Verlagstext kurz:
Beim Sterben ist jeder der Nächste. Nichts zeigt diesen dramatisch ernsten Sachverhalt besser als Didier Desmerveilles' makaberes ABC. In 26 Limericks und anderen gedichteten Geschichtchen mit garantiert tödlichem Ausgang präsentiert sich Desmerveilles gleichsam als "Final Destination"-Lyriker, als Heinz Erhardt des schwarzen Humors. Denn hier verlässt keiner lebend das dicht gewobene Netz seines ganz privaten Geschicks. Keiner.

Langtext:
„Du hast“, so befand Dirks Ma Doren, „in Kneipen so jung nichts verloren!“ und schloss voller Sorgen die Tür bis zum Morgen. Vor der fand sie Dirk dann erfroren." Und nicht nur Dirk ereilt wie in diesem Limerick ein ganz und gar unbarmherziges Geschick, auch Alma, Björn-Olaf, Yvonne, Zoltan und die anderen in diesem schaurigen ABC des Untergangs verlassen nicht lebend das von dem schwarzhumorigen Schicksalsbüchlein abgesteckte Terrain.
Didier Desmerveilles' Dichtung ist eine Kreuz- und Entdeckungsfahrt quer durch den Gemüsegarten der Reimkunst - vom ganz normalen Schüttelreim bis zum listigen Limerick. Heinz Erhardt lässt grüßen. Und Gevatter Tod steht finster grinsend daneben.
Für ABC-Schützen der Dichtkunst, Lyrik-Zyniker und alle, die Limericks mögen.
Außerdem ideal geeignet für alle, die noch witzige Beiträge für Hochzeits- und Jubiläumszeitungen suchen oder sonstwie unter Reimzwang stehen. Denn die in jedem Gedicht bzw. Limerick verwendeten Vornamen lassen sich natürlich austauschen.

I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats
Cat lovers will laugh out loud at the quirkiness of their feline friends with these insightful and curious poems from the singular minds of housecats. In this hilarious book of tongue-in-cheek poetry, the author of the internationally syndicated comic strip Sally Forth helps cats unlock their creative potential and explain their odd behavior to ignorant humans. With titles like "Who Is That on Your Lap?," "This Is My Chair," "Kneel Before Me," "Nudge," and "Some of My Best Friends Are Dogs," the poems collected in I Could Pee on This perfectly capture the inner workings of the cat psyche. With photos of the cat authors throughout, this whimsical volume reveals kitties at their wackiest, and most exasperating (but always lovable). Plus, this is a fixed-format version of the book, which looks nearly identical to the print version.

The Rain in Portugal: Poems
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins comes a twelfth collection of poetry offering over fifty new poems that showcase the generosity, wit, and imaginative play that prompted The Wall Street Journal to call him “America’s favorite poet.”
 
The Rain in Portugal—a title that admits he’s not much of a rhymer—sheds Collins’s ironic light on such subjects as travel and art, cats and dogs, loneliness and love, beauty and death. His tones range from the whimsical—“the dogs of Minneapolis . . . / have no idea they’re in Minneapolis”—to the elegiac in a reaction to the death of Seamus Heaney. A student of the everyday, Collins here contemplates a weather vane, a still life painting, the calendar, and a child lost at a beach. His imaginative fabrications have Shakespeare flying comfortably in first class and Keith Richards supporting the globe on his head. By turns entertaining, engaging, and enlightening, The Rain in Portugal amounts to another chorus of poems from one of the most respected and familiar voices in the world of American poetry.
 
Praise for The Rain in Portugal
 
“Nothing in Billy Collins’s twelfth book . . . is exactly what readers might expect, and that’s the charm of this collection.”The Washington Post
 
“This new collection shows [Collins] at his finest. . . . Certain to please his large readership and a good place for readers new to Collins to begin.”Library Journal
 
“Disarmingly playful and wistfully candid.”Booklist

Aimless Love: New and Selected Poems
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“America’s favorite poet.”—The Wall Street Journal

From the two-term Poet Laureate of the United States Billy Collins comes his first volume of new and selected poems in twelve years. Aimless Love combines fifty new poems with generous selections from his four most recent books—Nine Horses, The Trouble with Poetry, Ballistics, and Horoscopes for the Dead. Collins’s unmistakable voice, which brings together plain speech with imaginative surprise, is clearly heard on every page, reminding us how he has managed to enrich the tapestry of contemporary poetry and greatly expand its audience. His work is featured in top literary magazines such as The New Yorker, Poetry, and The Atlantic, and he sells out reading venues all across the country. Appearing regularly in The Best American Poetry series, his poems appeal to readers and live audiences far and wide and have been translated into more than a dozen languages. By turns playful, ironic, and serious, Collins’s poetry captures the nuances of everyday life while leading the reader into zones of inspired wonder. In the poet’s own words, he hopes that his poems “begin in Kansas and end in Oz.” Touching on the themes of love, loss, joy, and poetry itself, these poems showcase the best work of this “poet of plenitude, irony, and Augustan grace” (The New Yorker).

Envoy
 
Go, little book,
out of this house and into the world,
 
carriage made of paper rolling toward town
bearing a single passenger
beyond the reach of this jittery pen
and far from the desk and the nosy gooseneck lamp.
 
It is time to decamp,
put on a jacket and venture outside,
time to be regarded by other eyes,
bound to be held in foreign hands.
 
So off you go, infants of the brain,
with a wave and some bits of fatherly advice:
 
stay out as late as you like,
don’t bother to call or write,
and talk to as many strangers as you can.

Praise for Aimless Love
 
“[Billy Collins] is able, with precious few words, to make me cry. Or laugh out loud. He is a remarkable artist. To have such power in such an abbreviated form is deeply inspiring.”—J. J. Abrams, The New York Times Book Review
 
“His work is poignant, straightforward, usually funny and imaginative, also nuanced and surprising. It bears repeated reading and reading aloud.”The Plain Dealer
 
“Collins has earned almost rock-star status. . . . He knows how to write layered, subtly witty poems that anyone can understand and appreciate—even those who don’t normally like poetry. . . . The Collins in these pages is distinctive, evocative, and knows how to make the genre fresh and relevant.”—The Christian Science Monitor
 
“Collins’s new poems contain everything you've come to expect from a Billy Collins poem. They stand solidly on even ground, chiseled and unbreakable. Their phrasing is elegant, the humor is alive, and the speaker continues to stroll at his own pace through the plainness of American life.”The Daily Beast
 
“[Collins’s] poetry presents simple observations, which create a shared experience between Collins and his readers, while further revealing how he takes life’s everyday humdrum experiences and makes them vibrant.”—The Times Leader

Throw the Damn Ball: Classic Poetry by Dogs
A hilarious collection of poetry by dogs- perfect for lovers of literature and pups alike

“Dogs seldom make passes
At dogs passing gasses.”

Are these the words of Dorothy Parker? Ogden Nash?

Nope, the author is Sparky from Milton, Pennsylvania. Sparky, Snowy, Tucker, Louie, these canine laureates have written a volume of poetry displaying the brilliance and wit we've always suspected our dogs were hiding from us. They also, it turns out, revere the human geniuses who came before them, as you’ll see with “There Is No Frigate Like A Pavement” - an homage to Emily Dickinson - and “Do Not Go Gentle.” Yes, Dylan Thomas would love it.

All I ask is fairness

I think it's very unfair

It would be the electric chair
