It's Anjali's birthday party and the children have had a great time. But looking around the room at the end, they see mountains of rubbish, from food waste to wrapping paper, burst balloons and small plastic toys. What will happen to all of this waste?The children find out what happens at a recycling centre and about the huge amount of objects that can be recycled or reused. They learn how to take action outside by helping nature, reducing waste at school dinners, and saving energy and water at home. Through chatting to teachers and local people, the children learn all about green topics such as landfills, litter, plastic mountains in oceans and global warming. But it's not all doom and gloom. They discover that there are ways that they can take action to help save their environment and the planet. By walking to school or switching off lights when they don't need them, this book is full of ideas for reducing and reusing. At the end they hold a fun Eco Festival to raise awareness of how easy it is to 'go green'! 'Stop and Think' panels encourage readers to think about the problem in their local area and 'Take Action' panels give advice for how readers can get involved

Clive Gifford, Dan Schlitzkus

What is the space station and how did it get into space? How do astronauts get there and what do they do once they're there? How do astronauts eat, sleep, or even breathe, in space? This book answers all of these questions and more. Find out what it takes to become an astronaut and about the essential science experiments that are being carried out there. What effect does living in space have on the human body, from making you taller to losing your muscles because of zero gravity. If everything floats, then how can you go to the toilet and where does your wee and poo go? There's no bath or shower on the space station, so astronauts clean themselves with towels made damp by adding a little soapy water from a sealed pouch or by using special wet wipes each sealed in foil and containing disinfectant. Uncover all of these fascinating facts in this beautifully illustrated and fun book for children. Written to inspire a new generation of astronauts, Clive's detailed and fact-filled text will make you think you've visited the space station yourself. Fully illustrated by self-confessed space geek illustrator, Dan Schlitzkus, the illustrations are technically accurate and provide true representations of the mechanics, modules and equipment on board the ISS.
