December 2019 Book of the Month | Handsomely illustrated this information book is full of stories of adventure and exploration and takes readers to some of the wildest, most distant places on the planet, from the polar regions to the deepest underground caves. Each location is brought to life through maps and the geographical vital statistics but most vividly through the stories of the men and women who were among the first to explore them. Expect to get up close to the Matterhorn, the Arabian Desert and both poles while learning too about the threats to these beautiful places from climate change. Tyler’s striking graphic illustrations make the information even more memorable and there’s a useful glossary too.
From the brilliant illustrator, Simon Tyler, comes a wonderful compendium of space, space travel and much more. One day our sun will grow...and grow...and grow...until it ends its life as a red giant 400x its current size. Wonder at facts like these, and much more, in the new illustrated guide to Space. Space is fascinating, and in this book Simon Tyler gorgeously illustrates the planets, meteors, rockets and galaxies - even strange phenomena like the speed of light and solar flares!
This handsome, large format information book provides a fascinating introduction to the world of bugs (meaning the entire class of insects). Readers will gain a good understanding of insects in part one, from what they are to how they live; the book then looks at the different type of bugs in closer detail, picking out creatures such as the bullet ant or giant mesquite bug to explain more about their senses, defence, life cycles. Illustrations show the insects larger than life in eye-catching colour, but each is noted with its actual size too. Scientific terms are used throughout, all clearly listed and explained in a glossary. Attractive to look at, this is well thought-out and inspiring. ~ Andrea Reece
