This book is filled with weird and amazing facts that you've never heard before. Read about the dinosaur that used camouflage, wonder at the penguins that `propose' to each other with rocks and tell your friends that the dodo was actually quite smart! Scientists found that cockatoos in Australia make their own drumsticks and their own music. Each bird plays it's own different rhythm at its own different speed to attract a mate. Scientists in Tokyo have trained pigeons to distinguish between art style. They can tell the difference between works by Picasso and Monet. There are facts about sharks that listen to Death Metal, the amazing amount a hummingbird needs to eat, and strange creatures such as the `ghost' octopus. James Olstein beautifully illustrates these odd facts in a retro-inspired, quirky style. His designs aren't meant to be taken literally, but you'll laugh-out-load when you see a spider relaxing on a pool float and dinosaurs playing with a ball! Prepare to laugh, marvel and learn. Being a geek has never been so cool.
UK and Ireland's best-loved comedian Dara O Briain takes you on a journey from the safety of your comfiest chair to the furthest reaches of space (and beyond!) So you want to go into space? WHY?! (No, really - it's sort of a terrible idea. We humans are perfectly designed for life on Earth. We can walk around, breathe, drink water, eat vegetables, read books, not get poisoned or crushed to death when we go outside - it's lovely right where we are.) Not convinced? GOOD! People have been dreaming about space travel for centuries - there's something amazing about the idea of leaving our planet behind and setting out to explore the Universe - there's so much we still don't know.

On The Origin of Species has been the definitive explanation of the theory of evolution since it was first published in 1859. Now molecular biologist and illustrator Sabina Radeva unites her two passions to create a 64-page retelling of this seminal text.
This accessible work brings evolution to the younger generation through stylish illustrations and a simple, easy-to-understand text.
Pulling together Darwin's observations from his travels around the world and his groundbreaking - and controversial - explanation of how species form, develop and change over hundreds of thousands of years, On The Origin of Species is as relevant and important now as it ever was.

The story goes that on a hunting trip in 1902, President Theodore ?Teddy? Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear. ?Me? Shoot that little fella he said. ?Why, if I so much as ruffled his fur, I'd never be able to look my children in the eyes again!? When a political cartoonist shared the story in the newspaper, New York shopkeepers Rosie and Morris Michtom were impressed by the president's big, warm heart. So they decided to create a ?Teddy? bear in his honor to sell in their store. The bear was so popular, they made another one. And another. Before they knew it, they had to build a factory to accommodate the demand: it seemed every child wanted a teddy bear of their own! James Sage uses a playful blend of fact and fiction to tell this entertaining tale. The back matter includes a historical note, photos and a list of sources. The lively, fun narrative and vivid illustrations by Lisk Feng make for a wonderful read-aloud with universal appeal: adults will find it as charming as children do. The book has many applications in the social studies curriculum for the early grades, as the period and the president are brought vividly to life. And, of course, it's a perfect pick for Presidents' Day. The story also presents an inspiring small-business entrepreneurial success story.
