Players and Skills

Authors:
Clive Gifford

Cricket is a game steeped in history and tradition. But it is also one of the most exciting, and rapidly changing, sports in the world. New, fast-paced, forms of the game such as the IPL have attracted a younger fan base, and sponsorship deals and increased media coverage mean that top cricket players are some of the best-known, highly paid, sports stars on the planet. Generation Cricket celebrates the rejuvenation of the game, giving readers a sense of the drama, action and skill involved in playing the game.Generation Cricket: Players and Skills looks at everything involved in playing cricket, from batting, fielding and bowling to scoring, equipment and the pitch. The rules of the game, including the ever-complex LBW law, are explained, along with how runs are made, and the numerous ways a player can be 'out'. The book also looks at some of the key people involved in a cricket match, including the umpire, wicket keeper and captain. Different bowling and batting techniques, from seam, swing and spin bowling to cover drives and hook shots, are also explained. Star Player features provide information about the men and women at the top of the sport both now and in the past, including Sachin Tendulkar, Ashton Agar, Charlotte Edwards, Kevin Pietersen and Muttiah Muralitheran. A comprehensive guide to the players, skills and tactics involved in a game of cricket, Generation Cricket: Players and Skills is ideal for cricket lovers aged 9 and above, either for project work or simply as a great leisure read.

The International Space Station

Contributors:
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.
