Imagine this: You're playing a computer game when a spider drops onto your screen. "Aah!" you scream as you fling your device across the room. "What's the big deal?" asks your sister. "Spiders are fab. Have you ever watched a spider spin a web? Do you know that spiders can..."You can't believe it. Your sister loves spiders! Then you realise that even though many people are afraid of snakes, you think they're cool.When you think about it, people have different points of view about lots of animals. Bloodsucking leeches may scare the pants off you, but doctors around the world are big fans of these medical marvels. What about cockroaches? scurrying, dirty pests, right? Or could they actually be a solution to global hunger?You'll get a chance to decide when you check out these and other animals explored in this book. On the one hand you'll find arguments trying to convince you that these animals are disgusting, mean, dangerous or smelly. On the other hand you'll hear about how these very same animals are clever, helpful to humans and the environment and an inspiration to scientists. Though each side is telling the truth, both are trying to persuade you to agree with their point of view. Find out how you feel about animals that people love to hate - are they friend or foe?Aimed at children aged 8+.

1960s

Sally Hewitt
Authors:
Sally Hewitt

In 'I can remember' our recent history (i.e. World War II onwards) is brought alive through real life experiences and memories of everyday life and a wealth of memorabilia, ephemera and archive photography. Each book is broken up into thematic spreads: school, at home, work, entertainment etc and different voices recall their experiences related to them. There is not one single voice through the book but a variety, so there are is a range of views and a mixture of ages. The back of the books includes a timeline and glossary. 'I can remember the 1960s' includes growing up as a child of Jamaican immigrants, the 1966 world cup, a coal-mining town in Wales, Scotland in the sixties, Beatles mania, and swinging London and sixties fashions.
