            A story full of humour and heart about having the blues, in the form of a big heavy elephant. One day an elephant came and sat on my chest. I found it hard to get up or move around, to breathe or talk. I'm Blue, the elephant said. Can you please move, Blue? I asked. I don't want ...to move. This is a good spot for me to sit. You're crushing me, I said. Yet I find you very comfortable, said Blue. Mum read every book about elephants she could get her hands on, while Dad phoned an elephant specialist someone recommended. They all tried pushing, and pulling, and persuading. But would anyone - or anything - be able to shift Blue? Warm, empathetic, hopeful and often funny, with the ability to be read on different levels, My Elephant is Blue is the perfect story to help children explore and understand the experience of living under the weight of a big sadness.

            *A hilarious new book from the bestselling children's author* Just how scary can a holiday be? Very . . . Twelve-year-old Stan is going on holiday. To Italy. He's not going with his family though, he's going with his best-friend Felix (although if Stan was honestly ranking his fr...iends, Felix would be number five). He's absolutely terrified. Luckily, as well as emergency euros, Stan's mum has given him an emergency list that includes how to survive a shark attack, and what to do if he gets abducted by kidnappers. Stan thinks that a better list would include how to cope with weird toilets, and what to do if he accidentally calls Felix's mum 'mum' in front of everybody. And it soon turns out that Italy is full of strange food, difficult games, jellyfish and mosquitoes called Ian. Can Stan survive all this, as well as very complicated (and also, actually, very strange) grown-ups? One thing's for certain, Stan's not going to come back the same boy he left. He just hope he comes back at all . . . Worst. Holiday. Ever is a story about facing fears, dealing with worries, and how it's OK to be anxious, scared, and sometimes a little bit brave.

            It's a wrinkly, spongy mass the size of a cauliflower that sits in our heads and controls everything we do! Welcome to the world of the brain... Packed with colourful illustrations and fascinating facts, this fun book begins by looking at the anatomy of the human brain, its diffe...rent regions, and what they do. It also covers the rest of the nervous system and how nerve cells communicate. The wealth of other topics includes the senses, how we learn, memories, thinking, emotions, evolution and development of the brain, how our brain sets us apart from other animals, dreaming, and things scientists still don't fully understand - such as consciousness. In addition, this accessible introductory guide touches on how the brain copes with injury, aging, and the diseases that affect it. Written by neurobiologist Dr Liam Drew, The Brain Book is an authoritative, clearly written, reference book that's up to date with the latest in brain research. It is a perfect addition to any STEAM library and ideal for any young, budding scientist.
