In this adorably illustrated storybook, digital rights activist Murray Hunter takes a silly and subversive look at the world of digital surveillance – for kids! Boris the BabyBot follows the misadventures of a baby-tracking robot whose sole purpose is to track and monitor babies. But what happens when the BabyBot meets a baby that can’t be tracked?
Boris the BabyBot invites kids (and grown-ups) into the secret world of Big Data, in a way that’s playful, and full of mischief and laughs. The book creates an opportunity for grown-ups to start a conversation with children about technology and data collection, but can also simply be enjoyed as a fun and engaging story.
Boris the BabyBot was written to be read with children aged 3-6, and robots of all ages.

Which would you choose: a long, quiet life, or a short, heroic one?
Jesse Serrano has always been drawn to this question, but he’s never really had a choice. He’s known since birth that a hole in his heart would render his life a short one, whether he likes it or not.
As his dying wish, Jesse sends his cousins, best friend, and girlfriend on a trip across Europe—a mysterious mission that seems more harebrained with every leg of the journey. Following Jesse’s vague instructions, they trek across the continent, unsure if they should be basking in a backpacking trip before heading off to college or searching for something deeper. Through the museums, ancient ruins, landmarks, and more religious iconography than could fill a Holy Ark, they begin to wonder if they’ll ever be able to complete the passage that Jesse laid out for them—and if they even want to without him along for the ride.
In turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Kate Hattemer chronicles an unforgettable journey of lost and found, laughter and tears, and a myriad of Madonnas.
Even in his wildest nightmares, Martin could never have predicted what would happen when his family sign up for two day's trekking in the National Park during their holiday on the beautiful island of Santa Clara. They've barely set off when their car is waylaid and Martin, his parents and another family are stopped at gunpoint and bundled into a lorry that heads for the dense forest. The captives are pushed to their physical and emotional limits as they are forced further into the wild terrain, away from any possible rescue. But during their ordeal, the hostages come to understand something of the harsh political backdrop to life on Santa Clara, and the events that have shaped the lives of their captors and fuelled their actions. Martin discovers deep feelings for Louise, the other teenager caught up in the nightmare, only to have to watch her growing love for Ramon, the youngest hostage-taker. Captives is a wonderfully written, deeply engaging story about ten people thrown together under extraordinary circumstances and with devastating consequences - a story that will resonate with the reader long afterwards.
