              It's legal and regal--time to make some classy baked goods that can get you baked. Because everyone loves sugar, and (nearly) everyone loves cannabis. This beautifully photographed cookbook celebrates a British-style high tea--where all the delightful snacks are laden with cannab...is. Because now that the legal and regulated consumption of cannabis is steadily increasing, more and more of us are using weed when we bake. Gobbling down cannabis gives you a different high than smoking it, plus it's fun and easy to bake with, and the therapeutic benefits are much more effective. So it's time to get this book and make a classy high tea worthy of the British royals (but load it with space cakes, tarts, and sweet treats). Just some of the recipes included in this book are sativa butter tarts, sponge cake, funnel cakes, lightly salted caramel cupcakes, and (most dramatically) cannabis croquembouche. This book also explains the basics to making herb butters, oils, and other essential cannabinoid baking bases. Best of all, the mind-melting component of each of these desserts can be cranked up, dialed down, or removed completely--depending on your personal preference.

              Not all vegans do yoga thrice daily or thrive on kale juice. This book is for anyone curious about cooking meat-free, who DGAF about carbs. This is the anti-vegan cookbook for vegans. Almost every vegetarian and vegan cookbook focuses on the whole wheat/kefir/green cleanse/salt l...amp/lentil aspect of living a cruelty-free diet. But what about those of us who actually dream of a greasy burger all day and all night, but simply can't justify eating animal products? Or those of us who just wanted to opt out of the environmentally unsustainable meat industry? Or anyone who is just keen to broaden their culinary horizons and dip a toe in the waters of veganism? If any of these ring bells, then this is the cookbook for you. Inside this epic volume you'll find easy-to-follow recipes for Tater Tot Nachos, drowning with Vegan Cheese; Cobb('s Your Uncle) Salad; Veggie-Lasagna Cupcakes; Super Salty (Substitute) Bacon Burger; Deep-Fried (Seitan) Chicken Wings; and more. Unlike other vegan cookbooks that you might've come across, this book won't have you searching through a spice market for five hours just to find all the ingredients. These recipes are supermarket-ready and can be made by even the most novice chef. Because who said that living without meat meant that you couldn't get greasy AF? They were wrong, and this book is (cruelty-free) proof.

Today you'll find anywhere a whole range of naturally low-sugar, fermented alternatives such as kombucha, switchel and kefir - all healthy, gut-friendly drink options. These thirst-quenchers might seem too complicated to consider making yourself - but, in fact, fermented drinks are much easier to create at home than you might think. That's the thing about fermentation... You just bottle it up and wait. This book contains 40 easy-to-create drinks that will not just save you money, but will make you feel great too! Recipes in the book include kefir, kombucha, grapefruit soda, cider, switchel and mead. You'll be a (mocktail) mixologist in no time!

              Where's Bowie?: Search for David Bowie in Berlin, Studio 54, Outer Space and more... (Hardback)

              This book is a reverent and interactive homage to David Bowie, with dense illustrations of the many real and imagined universes of his own making. Hidden somewhere on each of these double page spreads, a Bowie is patiently waiting to be spotted by the well-trained eye of a fan. A...s the chameleonic Bowie took on so many iconic personas across his illustrious career, each moment is celebrated chronologically in this book. You will have to find young and dapper David Jones in 1960s Brixton; look for Ziggy Stardust in spaced out Outer Space, crawling with Martian spiders and nestled between the stars; then search for glam Bowie among the revellers at Studio 54; and ask yourself, is that the Thin White Duke outside Hansa By the Wall in late-70s Berlin? Each page of this book is so laden with Bowie references that you might even pick up a factoid or two in your search. With fun, detailed illustrations that explore Bowie's world - and that of his influences - Where's Bowie is the perfect guide to the cultural icon for both adults and children. Plus, who doesn't want to raise their kid as a Bowie super-geek? No one - that's who.

              As suggested by its title, this ridiculous book is a sleeping aide which harnesses the relaxing power of cute animals. Well, wait - haven't you heard? The secret to a happy and fulfilled life is to just get eight hours sleep per night. Except there's one big catch: getting a good... sleep is borderline impossible in our current snoozing climate. We've got smartphones forever by our bedside - complete with the blue light temptation of scrolling through social media till sunrise. There's only one solution: turn off the phone, and flick instead through this therapeutic book of snoozy animals. They will coo you into sleepy submission. As its title subtly suggests, this book is literally just pictures of snoozing animals. Some of the lil sleepy sweeties featured include: resting raccoons, cats having a cat nap, napping numbats, siesta-ing seals, drowsy dingos, slumbering sloths, and zebras catching some much-need Zs. Toward these furry angels we must turn, in these dire times of sleeplessness, to get a good night sleep of our own. This book is the follow-up-of-sorts to the hugely successful, and totally adorable, This Book Is Literally Just Pictures of Cute Animals That Will Make You Feel Better.
