            An energetic and entertaining story to entice fussy little eaters to look beyond boring beige foods and explore a whole new world of colourful food! 'Mum's in a bad mood. She's fed up with all the beige foods in the kitchen, like chicken nuggets, chips, pasta, crisps, cereal... s...o she's taking her children to the supermarket to play a game. But you can't play a game in the supermarket, can you? Yes you can!' This ingenious new book from Claire Potter, author of Getting the Little Blighters to Eat, helps to break down the fussy eating headache by turning trying new foods into a game, a method often used by paediatricians. Every day of the week we see two children go to the supermarket and pick food they would like to try - but there is a twist. The food must be a certain colour, chosen by their mum! On Monday, she tells them to choose three RED foods; on Tuesday, three YELLOW foods; on Wednesday, three GREEN foods... Which foods will they choose? And how will they eat them? There are so many to choose from... Which ones would YOU pick? And how would YOU eat them?

            The Secret to Superhuman Strength
             

            The Secret to Superhuman Strength (Hardback)

            • Reprinting locally

            From the author of Fun Home, a profound graphic memoir of Bechdel's lifelong love affair with exercise, set against a hilarious chronicle of fitness fads in our times Comics and cultural superstar Alison Bechdel delivers a deeply layered story of her fascination, from childhood t...o adulthood, with every fitness craze to come down the pike: from Jack LaLanne in the 60s ('Outlandish jumpsuit! Cantaloupe-sized guns!') to the existential oddness of present-day spin class. Readers will see their athletic or semi-active pasts flash before their eyes through an ever-evolving panoply of running shoes, bicycles, skis, and sundry other gear. But the more Bechdel tries to improve herself, the more her self appears to be the thing in her way. She turns for enlightenment to Eastern philosophers and literary figures, including Beat writer Jack Kerouac, whose search for self-transcendence in the great outdoors appears in moving conversation with the author's own. This gifted artist and not-getting-any-younger exerciser comes to a soulful conclusion. The secret to superhuman strength lies not in six-pack abs, but in something much less clearly defined: facing her own non-transcendent but all-important interdependence with others. A heartrendingly comic chronicle for our times.
