    The Story of Britain

    Award-winners Mick Manning and Brita Granström bring British history to life in this lavishly illustrated book, telling our island's story from the stone age through to the present. This sumptious book is a wonderful first-introduction to British history. Masters of illustrated non-fiction, Mick Manning and Brita Granström tell the story of Britain from the Stone Age up to the present in a truly integrated narrative of text and illustration. It moves throughs the Iron Age, Stonehenge, the Celts, the Romans and the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, then on to the marvels of the Medieval era, the Tudors and Stuarts, the Industrial Revolution, the Victorians and the 20th century right up to the modern day. The exciting story is supplemented by many amazing facts and introduces key figures from kings, queens and military leaders to scientists, artists and writers. History doesn't have to be horrible - here it is gripping, fascinating and fun!

    Dinosaurs in our Street

    All is quiet on the street - but, hold on, is that a T-rex and her children lurking behind you? And what is Diplodocus doing tangled in electricity cables? Discover the dinosaurs and what life might be like if they really roamed our streets today. Welcome to a world where dinosaurs have suddenly appeared on our city streets. No one knows how they got here but now they are everywhere! Big scary, meat-eating ones like Tyrannosaurus Rex and Giganotosaurus; giant, long-necked ones like Diplodocus; noisy, trumpteting ones like Parasaurolophus; spiky armoured ones like Stegosaurus; and packs of dangerous little ones with sharp claws like Velociraptor (look out, they are stealing your football!). Fantastic, realistic graphic art combines with lively text to reveal the dinosaurs as they really might appear on our streets, accurately showing their size and colours, and helping young dinosaurs imagine what a real-life, face-to-face encounter with their favourite dinosaur might be like!

    I Love This Tree

    A fascinating and beautiful book that explores the life of an old living deciduous tree and the creatures that inhabit it. 'Close to my house, there's a beautiful, huge, spreading tree. I see it every day. We walk past it on the way to school, and hear the wind rustling through it at night. How long has that tree been standing there? If the tree wasn't there any more, I would miss it all the time. But it's not just me - so many animals depend on it too...' 'I love this tree' is a book which looks at the life of an old living deciduous tree and through it explores the amazing life of a tree and the creatures that inhabit it. Using a mixture of photos and artwork the book shows how the tree has changed and how it acts as a habitat for other life. This beautiful book explores how important trees are to the planet. Packed with information and pictures it provides a wealth of information about trees and their importance and inspires a love of these amazing plants.
