What's New? Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Hop on over there to ogle what other bloggers got this week.

For review: 

King of the Bench: No Fear! by Steve Moore. 216 p. Harper/ HarperCollins Publishers, March 28, 2017. 9780062203311.

Jacket blurb: From the nationally syndicated cartoonist of "In the Bleachers" comes a highly illustrated middle grade series in the deadpan style of "Timmy Failure" about Steve, who plays the same position in every sport: benchwarmer. 

Animal Planet: strange, unusual, gross & cool animals by Charles Ghigna. 128 p. Liberty Press/ Time Inc. October 11, 2016. 9781618931665.

Publisher synopsis: Animal Planet presents the ickiest, stickiest, blobbiest, and oddest animals in the world!
Did you know that an archerfish can spit water up to 16 feet? Or that the giant weta is the world's largest and heaviest insect? Animal Planet's fascinating exploration of animal oddities introduces young animal lovers to some of the most astonishing, gorgeous, and obscure animals in the world-including some brand new discoveries! Packed with more than 200 vibrant photographs and fun facts about animals with unusual behaviors, strange appearances, and remarkable stats, this deluxe gift book is perfect for reluctant readers or anyone who loves totally gross and amazing animals.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of books in the Animal Bites series benefits the principal partners of R.O.A.R. (Reach Out. Act. Respond.), Animal Planet's initiative dedicated to improving the lives of animals in our communities and in the wild.

That's what's new with me. What's new with you?
