              Refugees (Hardback)

              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.

              A chronological review of the most essential and heaviest metal and hard rock albums, illustrated throughout, demonstrating the global popularity of the genre and just how much it has grown. The 1970s was the era when the great heavy metal pioneers laid down the blueprint for eve...rything that was to come after, forefathers like Black Sabbath and Deep Purple dominated. But as metal began to take hold in the mainstream - and then began to diversify - bands such as Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Metallica and Moetley Crue made their presence felt among new fans, and it continues to evolve today with bands like Mastodon and Lamb of God. Providing an extensive overview of the music and the stories behind each album, this inclusive reference chronicles the history and development of heavy metal, including sub-movements such as death metal, speed metal, grindcore, and hair metal, illustrated with the iconic covers and archive photographs.

              A return to Camelot This is the second volume of Arnold Schwartzman's trilogy on the architecture of the late 19th and early 20th Century, in which he focuses on a group of British craftsmen who decided to turn their backs on the mass production of the Industrial Revolution to fo...rm a 'Round Table' in order to establish a means of returning to hand-crafted products. William Morris, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and in America, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Comfort Tiffany and Greene and Greene were among these like-minded artisans who wished in essence to create a movement which embodied a vision and style that returned to the Golden Age of craftsmanship.

              Joan Baez: The Last Leaf

              Since she stepped onstage unannounced at the 1959 Newport Folk Festival, Joan Baez has occupied a singular place in popular music. Within three years, she had recorded three best-selling albums and had embarked on a tour of southern US campuses, playing to integrated audiences in... an era of segregation. When Time magazine chronicled the folk revival in November 1962, her portrait was on the cover. Her voice was as lustrous and rich as old gold. She has mentored generations of singer-songwriters, most famously Bob Dylan. But Joan Baez has always been much more than simply a singer. Even before she stepped on to the podium beside Dr Martin Luther King at the March on Washington, her voice was raised in sorrow and anger as well as in song. The causes for which she has campaigned are legion and it's no surprise that she was chosen to open Live Aid in Philadelphia in 1985. In 1993, amid the siege of Bosnia, she donned a flak jacket to sing for the citizens of Sarajevo offering, as so many times before and since, an act of love, sharing, witness and music . Now approaching 80, Baez has stepped down from the stage following a worldwide farewell tour and a final Grammy-nominated album. The Last Leaf is a celebration of a timeless figure whose music and influence will endure long after her voice is silenced.

              `Lewis Carroll, we could say, created the whole of children's literature with these wonderful stories. Placing a child at the centre of a narrative that was entirely free of instruction, entirely devoted to delight, was a stroke of genius. The Alices are the greatest nonsense eve...r written, and far greater, in my view, than most sense.' Philip Pullman Lewis Carroll's classic tale began as a story told to a group of children on a boating picnic in 1862 and was first published as Alice's Adventures Under Ground three years later and it has been a favourite with children and adults ever since. Alice's adventures down the rabbit hole, in particular the strange characters she meets there - the constantly grinning Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts - have become world-famous. This edition brings together new abridged text with more than 50 stunning illustrations by Robert Ingpen, each reflecting his unique style and extraordinary imagination in visualising this enchanting story.
