              Refugee is a book of two voices. The first one sees the people fleeing from war and persecution and asks, Why here? Why my country? It is a feeling many people share. It is one of fear and suspicion. But when you read the text the opposite way, a new voice emerges. It says, `Why ...not make them welcome? Why not share the things we have?' The world is undergoing a period of mass human migration. Whether this is caused by war, persecution or economics, the people we see on the news in those camps are waiting - waiting to live their lives. There are two sides to every debate. There are two sides to a wall. This story shows both sides of the issue with skill and the illustrations depict the issue in a magic realism style, powerful but never frightening, and will promote a deeper discussion on this topic with an older child.

              The right to protest is hard fought and even harder to win. Yet it is the bedrock of any thriving democracy. When we stand together, our voices and opinions are heard by those in power. Protest has toppled governments and made laws. It has cost lives and it has changed lives. In ...this book we look at six main areas of protest and explaining the reasons behind the protest issue, how it has been protested in the past and how these issues are being protested by children today. It will cover the international Women's Marches, #Black Lives Matter, the #Enough is Enough campaign and the work of CND and Greenpeace, illustrated with a mix of poster art and photography. In association with Amnesty International.

              Stephen King at the Movies
               

              Stephen King at the Movies (Hardback)

              Surely America's greatest storyteller, no single author has been adapted more regularly than Stephen King. With sixty-five existing movies and thirty television shows, and many more to come, the concept of the King adaptation lies at the core of what we understand as Hollywood en...tertainment, the essence of horror, and the landscape of American life. Illustrated with a fabulous array of familiar and unusual iconography, this is the most comprehensive account of the films and television series adapted from the work of Stephen King ever put together. Every Children of the Corn movie has been accounted for; every remake and reboot wrestled into submission; all the dark recesses of King's imagination brought out into the light. Including fresh critical analysis, interviews, behind-the-scenes revelations and biographical detail, this is both a King completist's dream and a must for all movie fans. Here is the chance to delve deep into such terrifying and beloved movies and television shows as Carrie, Salem's Lot, The Shining, Cujo, Stand By Me, Misery, The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, and such modern marvels as Castle Rock, Mr. Mercedes, Pet Sematary, It: Chapters One and Two, and Doctor Sleep.

              Springsteen: Album by Album
               

              Springsteen: Album by Album (EPUB ebook)

              By White, Ryan

              For over 40 years Bruce Springsteen has stood astride the rock 'n' roll stage like a musical colossus, his 18 studio albums - from the 1973 debut, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J., to 2014's High Hopes - the testament of a life dedicated to musical prowess and committed songwriti...ng. Garnering critical acclaim since the beginning of his recording career, his albums have reflected deeply-felt passions and concerns, from the state of the American working man in The River and Nebraska, to the highs and lows of personal relationships in Tunnel of Love; from the bleak visions in Darkness on the Edge of Town to the often unrecognized anger of Born in the U.S.A. No fewer than nine of his studio releases have topped the album charts in the United States, where Bruce Springsteen has sold over 75 million albums in total (out of 120 million worldwide), and received 20 Grammy awards in the process. And his recording (or indeed performing) career shows no sign of slowing down or losing its cutting-edge impetus - the last of the US chart toppers was in fact his latest album, High Hopes. 'The Boss', after four dynamic decades, is still at the top of his game.

              The Wind in The Willows (EPUB ebook)

              By Grahame, Kenneth; Illustrated by Ingpen, Robert

              Kenneth Grahame's classic tale was first published in 1908, and children and adults alike fell in love with the timid Mole, the friendly Water Rat, the erudite Badger, the mischievous Toad, and a host of other unforgettable creatures. The quiet life they lead on the banks of the ...River Thames is interspersed with adventures, normally instigated by Toad, who has a propensity for trouble, and whose sudden and all-consuming passion for motor cars eventually results in his being kept 'a helpless prisoner in the remotest dungeon of the best-guarded keep of the stoutest castle in all the length and breadth of Merry England.' His escape dressed as a washerwoman and his journey home to Toad Hall are among the most familiar and best-loved escapades in children's literature. Over the years, the animals' adventures have been brought to life by many artists, including E. H. Shepard, who illustrated the original edition, and Arthur Rackham. This magnificent new edition brings the story to life with more than 70 new illustrations by award-winning artist Robert Ingpen, so fans of all ages can relive - or enjoy for the first time - this heart-warming tale.

              Johnny Depp: A Retrospective (EPUB ebook)

              By Daly, Steven

              Johnny Depp is one of the most enigmatic, alluring and gifted actors of his generation, whose charismatic screen presence has brought to life some of cinema's most enduring characters, from the tragi-comic Edward Scissorhands and the fantastical Willy Wonka to the murderous Sween...ey Todd and the swashbuckling Captain Jack Sparrow. This retrospective provides illuminating commentary on each of Johnny Depp's movies, from his first ever role in A Nightmare on Elm Street in 1984 through to The Lone Ranger. Lavishly illustrated with over 250 images and behind-the-scenes stills from the movies themselves, Johnny Depp: A Retrospective is a fitting tribute to one of the big screen's most unique talents and eternally popular icons.

              Are exams getting easier? It is a headline that screams from our newspapers every August when the exam results are published. Of course, we all tend to look at the world through rose-tinted glasses and nothing is rosier than the past. Thus, we believe that we, as kids, had it har...der, that we got by just fine without mobile phones and computers and that learning was an altogether more difficult business - especially exams. Are they getting easier or are our children getting smarter? What better way to come to your own conclusion on this thorny subject than to take yourself back to that nerve-racking moment when the invigilator uttered those portentous words: `Okay, you may turn over your paper and begin'? Are You Smarter Than a Millennial? gives you the chance to inhabit the mind of a student of the 1990s or 2000s, a time when Tony Blair occupied Number 10, home ownership rocketed and we were told an end had come to `boom or bust'. Test your wits on genuine questions from mathematics, verbal and non-verbal reasoning examinations from that bygone era and find out if you measure up. Also discover for yourself whether exams were becoming easier even back then.
