Tom Hazuka’s Flash Fiction Funny is a delight. Comical, silly, absurd, slapstick, quirky and always fun, it tickles. Well-crafted fl ashes by established and up-and-coming authors fi nd humour in a wonderful array of characters and scenarios: waitresses, teachers, musicians, dentists, gynaecologists, Barbie dolls and superheroes; first dates, sexual fantasies, walks with ABBA and swimming with chickens. There are also porcelain wiener dogs. Some flashes reboot Shakespearean tragedy, Bible stories and fairy tales, others refresh the onscreen world of Google and PowerPoint. Ranging from Prince Charming’s shoe fetish to a male model’s emotional investment in yoga pants, this endlessly surprising anthology is light-hearted but also warm-hearted; its humour doesn’t mock or belittle but off ers moments of insight into growing up, growing old, loving and living. Enjoy!

Dr. Laura Levine: The second edition of my textbook Child Development: An Active Learning Approach came out during the summer of 2013. My co-author, Joyce Munsch, and I are very excited to bring this updated version of the book to students and faculty who are beginning their study of children’s growth and development. The first edition appeared in 2010 and was used by thousands of students nationally and internationally. We were pleased to have the opportunity to both update and reorganize the material to keep it at the cutting edge of scientific research in this area while making sure that it is understandable to students. We continued our philosophy of embedding activities within the book so that students can directly apply the material through their reflections and through activities with children and adolescents
