Can Everyone Please Calm Down? Mae Martin's Guide to Sexuality

Mae Martin
Authors:
Mae Martin

Are you gay? Are you male? Are you straight? Are you female? These aren't necessarily questions with yes/no answers. Gender and sexuality aren't black and white, binary concepts - they can be fluid, and are often on a spectrum: 40% of people under 25 don't identify as gay or straight. Society hasn't necessary caught up with this, though, as comedian Mae Martin notes in this hilarious look at sexuality, dating and gender in the 21st century. She notes, partly in humour, partly in frustration, that it's 2017, and we are still labeling people by who they sleep with. Expanding on themes raised in her BBC Radio 4 show Mae Martin's Guide to 21st Century Sexuality, she aims to break down barriers and start conversations. With a blend of personal anecdotes and clever social observations, Mae gently pokes fun at stereotypes, pigeon-holing and intolerance in this truly millennial book.

Food

Authors:
Philip Steele

Food is fundamental to life on Earth. The struggle to find or grow food, and often failing, is the story of human history. Today we have more varities of food and production methods than ever before, but there has perhaps never been less connection with the land that produces food, and with farming. And despite all the incredible progress that has been made, today nearly 11 per cent of the world's population is undernourished. This book, in the Question It! series for readers upwards of age ten, will explore these important topics in a balanced and objective way, encouraging readers to take a questioning approach to the issues surrounding the global food supply.

Cath Senker
Authors:
Cath Senker

What if you had to leave your home and you could never go back? What do you think that would be like?For millions of Syrian and Iraqi citizens (and for people from many other nations around the world), these are the question they face. The current, desperate situation in their homelands and the mass migrations from the Middle East is both shocking to us, and sadly nothing new.

Historical sources and first-hand accounts are used to explore racism, religion, life in refugee camps and the challenges migrant and refugees face on arrival in new lands, alongside the response of host countries. The book will also look at the difficult and dangerous journeys people make in an attempt to reach a safe haven and life in refugee camps, with the constant struggle to access shelter, warmth, food, medicine and education.Designed to be accessible to both children and adults, this book is an open and balanced tool for opening discussions around these sensitive issues. For children aged 11+.Author Cath Senker is an expert on writing in this area. She has housed refugees in her own home and is active in helping to provide education to those arriving in Britain.

Next, she commissioned fiction titles, editing picture books, storybooks and novels. And then she got the chance to write her own books, which she thinks is quite the best job ever. Except possibly being a chocolatier. She writes non-fiction as Kay Barnham. Her specialist subjects include ice-skating, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, lightning, fairies, Roald Dahl, Sir Isaac Newton, Christmas, dolphins, Florence Nightingale and very bad cracker jokes. And chocolate.She also writes fiction as Kay Woodward, including the Skate School series for Usborne and the novels Jane Airhead and Wuthering Hearts for Andersen Press.
