Welcome to the book division of Yellow Tail Records. We're excited about our new venture, and our new release, "The Monster in the Closet/Go To Sleep," the first bedtime book for grownups from the group, Uncle Bonsai!
The Monster in The Closet, written by Andrew Ratshin and illustrated by Arni Adler is a cautionary tale, based on the things parents might say to keep their kids in bed at night; Go To Sleep, also written by Andrew Ratshin, illustrated by Patrice O’Neill, is a lovely lullaby, with an increasingly frustrated parent trying to get a child to bed. Following in the vein of Edward Gorey and Tm Burton, these books might not be for the youngest child in the household but will please older kids and parents alike! (No bad language or anything like that . . . just maybe a whole lot of monsters in the house! You want to find out? Get out of bed!)

Yellow Tail Press is the new publishing branch of Yellow Tail Records, a Seattle-based independent music label that features some of the best the Pacific Northwest has to offer . . . along with the wonderful non-Pacific Northwest singer/songwriter Christine Lavin.
Yellow Tail Press started in 2012 to present the written works of the group Uncle Bonsai. For over 30 years, the group has been recording and performing thorughout North America and now, for the first time, two of their songs have been incorporated into a brand new "bedtime book for grownups," The Monster in the Closet/Go To Sleep, two tauntingly twisted tales for tormented parents! This reversible hard cover book -- why should kids have all the fun -- is available in stores everywhere and direct from the Yellow Tail Store. Compact Disc included!
