A book that brilliantly demonstrates the rich variety of life on earth as well as its interconnection. I could detail the meticulous planning; the writing and re-writing of text that will never be read; the hours of researching and verifying the facts; the careful planning of colour balance and atmosphere; the sleepless nights putting paint to paper and the in-depth discussions of paper stocks, cover finishes and format variations. Or I could just tell you why The premise is simple.
A book that opens our eyes to the natural world around us and forces us to observe it and ask questions.
It is the kind of book I hope my son will enjoy. I want him to be aware of the world outside his window, to ask questions about it, to engage with it, and to feel. I hope you do too. Thomas Truong Publisher, Degrees. This book points out just how wrong they are, countering each anti-book statement page by page in lively, funny text and illustrations.

I can always ignore her. In this episode, Isadora is excited to be going to a human fair, but when she and her family arrive, they find the rides are looking very battered and forlorn. A few touches of magic turns the fair into something very special indeed, but for Isadora the best fun of all is simply spending happy times with her family and friends. The illustrations are full of charm and the short chapters makes this truly accessible to newly independent readers. A message from the author about her inspiration for the character of Isadora Moon : There is actually quite a bit of history behind Isadora Moon.
About ten years ago, on my art foundation course, I created a character called Victoria Stitch and wrote and illustrated a picture book about her. She was a grown up, naughty, slightly gothic, fairy type character and she had a Pink Rabbit who she always dragged around with her. Victoria Stitch became like my alter ego and I always kept her close to me and worked on her in my spare time.
Over the years she evolved. She started with pink hair and then she turned even more gothic looking with black, messy hair and with bat wings instead of fairy wings. As my style of illustration changed, she changed too. She is extremely special to me. So Isadora Moon was born! I also gave Isadora Moon fangs unlike Victoria Stitch as when I started to think about the backstory for her why she has batwings, what species is she etc… it made sense that her mum was a fairy and her dad was a vampire.
This is why Isadora Moon is so special to me — because she was born out of a real passion project of mine. I absolutely adore her. This new book, part of the Prehistoric Beasts Uncovered series, brings us hot off the press scientific information on Triceratops, one of the most recognisable of all the dinosaurs. The discovery of a Triceratops tooth in proved that the animals lived in Appalachia, now the eastern part of the USA, far outside the area they were thought to inhabit. Now scientists can look for Triceratops fossils in whole new areas, and new discoveries will certainly be made.
Other pages show how modern technology has revealed new information about Triceratops eating habits, but that scientists learned lots too by recreating battles between Triceratops using plastic models. Full colour throughout and with a useful glossary, this is an inspiring information book. It was also fascinating to work with the artists, from around the world, who created the life-like 3D artworks of the animals featured in the series.
Every year new fossil discoveries are made, or advancements in technology allow us to gather more evidence from bones that were dug from the ground decades ago.
This means the books are just jam-packed with the latest information on these incredible animals. From seeing T. A brilliantly funny odd couples comedy from one of our very funniest authors for children. The Primms and the Weirds are totally different: fish-eating, hedge-trimming, neighbourhood-watching, the Primms are as strait-laced as they come, while the Weirds are just, well, weird!http://holod34.ru/images/nipuzub/1555-localizzare-cellulare-da.html

He's exceptionally tall but that really isn't going to help him here. Through fair means or foul, Daniel realises he must somehow win the competition to avoid national humiliation - and the wrath of the rest of the school! With short chapters and lots of fun cartoon illustrations this is a great choice for the more reluctant reader.
Reluctant Reads - Ages 7+
But she still feels a bit homesick. When the school decides to enter a film-making competition set by the local council, Dani is in her element - back at home she often makes videos with her friend Arch. Amongst the fun and crazy adventures, there are subtle messages about being yourself, and developing confidence.
A great take on the boarding school genre. Or are these problems just too big for Funfair Moon? Verbal and visual jokes about in this fantastical adventure.
