            Amy and Lan's parents have thrown in their urban lives - and are running a (seemingly) idyllic smallholding in the West Country- scything their own hay, slaughtering their own turkeys (named Vita and Virginia), even starting their own blog Exit, Pursued By a Goat. Amy and Lan and... the other children adore their freedoms and the animals they get to tend (including a calf in their kitchen!) plus the various human waifs and strays that their parents bring into Frith Farm. Told as the seasonal calendar turns, the novel has a magical, Edenic quality as seen through the eyes of the two kids. But the adult characters, whom we also grow to love, start to behave increasingly badly, and the balance of the community is thrown. From early on, it is clear to the reader that paradise will soon be lost, but the fact that Amy and Lan don't realise what is happening only adds to the heartbreaking denouement...

Take a leap into the world of philosophy and d...iscover questions about life, the universe, and human behaviour that great thinkers have pondered throughout history, and which are still being asked today.

By slowly unravelling arguments to unpack complex theories, What's the Point of Philosophy? allows you to connect with ideas in a new and exciting way. If you never stop asking 'why?', this is the book for you! This book is about how philosophy has changed the world, one crazy idea at a time, and it is guaranteed to inspire, surprise, amuse, and entertain everybody who picks it up.
