      The Colour Thief

      This is a story of hope triumphing over despair, for families touched by depression. 'It's crucial kids learn about depression; that it's nothing to feel ashamed about and they are not alone - one fourth of the world knows what it feels like. It's going to be them that break the stigma, not us.' Ruby Wax This is the tender tale of a young boy trying to make sense of his father's sadness, as he watches his world become dark with depression. A story of hope and love, and rediscovering how colourful life can be. Narrated from the child's perspective and illustrated with beautiful pictures by the award-winning artist Karin Littlewood, this is an ideal book to read with children trying to understand the cause and effects of depression. 'This book brings freshness and vibrancy into a world often portrayed as dark and hidden, and it can help take away the feelings of helplessness and fear that can make families feel so alone.' Marjorie Wallace CBE, Hon FRC Psych, Founder of SANE.

      What is Evolution?

      From the first single-cell organisms to today's huge and diverse array of living things, this book takes its reader on a journey to discover not only how our planet has become home to millions of species, but also the history of the scientific discoveries that led to our understanding of evolution. Looking at both the history of life on Earth and the scientific breakthroughs that led to our greater understanding of the living world, this book gives the definitive overview of the theory of evolution. It takes an in-depth look at the work of Charles Darwin, Thomas Huxley and Alfred Russel Wallace as well as topics such as genetic modification, artificial selection and bacterial resistance. Starting with fossils and early life forms, the book investigates the development and diversification of life on Earth over billions of years. Topics such as adaptation and specification, as well as convergent evolution, symbiosis and genetics help illustrate how evolution affects all living beings and has lead to the huge biodiversity we have on our planet today. Mike Gordon's illustrations lend a light touch and add a dash of humour.
