Two new catalogues coming your way soon!

We've got so many great deals coming up for you that we just had to try to squeeze in two more catalogues before the end of the year.

In the upcoming weeks, you should see our ever-popular Paperback catalogue, which includes the best prices on hundreds of Paperback Books -- The Great Gatsby at 35% off, over $3.00 off Old Man and the Sea, and our ever-popular Touchstones (still 50% or more off for teachers!). This is the book to plan next year's reading schedule... I think you'll find some great new books in there to add to your classroom. Keep your eyes out for our big, red catalogue -- you can't miss it.

We also found some great deals on Dictionaries and Thesauruses this spring and we're able to offer you even better deals than we normally can through our new Reference and Resource Catalogue -- $18.95 for Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, and a new find for us, Webster's English Language Desk Reference - a Dictionary, Thesaurus, and usage guide in one book for only $7.99!

Let us know if you don't get one of these catalogues in the coming weeks and we'll rush a copy to you.

The New!

Some of you may have noticed our new site is (finally) up and running!

We're thrilled to improve our site so that you will have the ability to find exactly what you're looking for and order with greater confidence and ease.

We're in the process of building a connection between our web site and our server to make sure you always have the latest information. This will also repair many of the items that are missing detailed descriptions, but in the meantime if you need more information, please just E-mail us through this handy web form, and we'll get back to you ASAP with better product info.

If you notice anything else that we can do to improve our site, let us know.

Thanks for your patience as we get everything up and running.

Welcome to the Prestwick Cafe!

To keep you all up to date with the latest and greatest happenings at Prestwick House, we've finally taken the step of entering the Blog-o-sphere (one of the oddest neologisms of the 21st century).

The goal of this site is to make it easier for us to hold a conversation with you. We want to make sure you know what we're working on, and we want to know what you're looking for in supplementary English language arts products.

From time to time we may let you see some previews of what we're working on or ask your advice on how to develop products. I'll also post some links to things on the web that we think might be interesting to English Teachers (like this visual thesaurus - which used to be 100% free but still allows trial searches).

I'm Keith, your host at the Prestwick Cafe, so anytime you need anything, please feel free to drop me an E-mail at myname [at] (Let's see if that tricks the spammers. I know you'll figure it out.)

So, pour your self a cup of coffee or tea and grab a seat at the Prestwick House Cafe.
