It all started with a tickle. Roger Hargreaves’ son Adam asked him what a tickle looked like. In response, Roger drew a small orange man with extraordinarily long arms that could reach anywhere and tickle anyone. Mr Tickle, the first of the Mr Men, was born. Mr Tickle was soon joined by Mr Greedy, Mr Happy, Mr Nosey, Mr Sneeze and Mr Bump. The books were an instant hit and Roger went on to create many more Mr Men and Little Miss characters. What Roger really wanted was to make children laugh, which is probably why his own favourite character is Mr Silly.

This title includes a Book, 2 Pyramid Books & 2 CDs. The nature of beginning is to connect. The result of connecting intellectually or physically is some form of development. This publication describes a life of connections involving the natural physical world with music and art. The stimulations of the progressive effects among the three brought forth the logical steps of architecture and self sustaining vocation. It begins with a young boy exploring and interacting with nature. His family and society allow his abilities and imagination to develop and flourish. The freedom of seizing opportunities and fates adventures allow his various talents to expand. Geography and the ocean become an integral part of his existence as he becomes a man. He often believes as he travels in solitude over land and sea toward his destiny that he exists in another time, perhaps hundreds of years earlier. As a young adult he reconstructs a sailing vessel that he found under the Brooklyn Bridge, in NYC. The sailboat is capable of ocean voyages. He sails and discovers interesting attributes combining the muses of natural science with those of music and philosophy. His interactions with people within and without his life bring him an awareness of the human condition. He is a song writer turning his thoughts into lyrics and music. He returns home to NY and discovers the high attributes of applying knowledge and logic to problems to create solutions. Involved in the everyday possibilities of hopes and dreams either through creating music, producing artwork or constructing dwellings he aspires to elevate destinies. A central theme of this book is the affability of the relationships between the different talented personalities and their abilities to share a logical or artistic quest as their paths crossed. Often the group would be thinking or creating in tandem or as one. The end results connect the reader to the sources of creativity that produce a bridge between Music, Art and Architecture. All inspired with creative communication being the only impetus. This tome describes how they developed a philosophical approach to solve some problems of the human condition through innovative architecture and vocation. The CDs feature 18 songs. It also includes two Pyramid Books - "Sol-Ra" and "Returning Origin".
"The whole thing was basically an experiment," Richard Feynman said late in his career, looking back on the origins of his lectures. The experiment turned out to be hugely successful, spawning a book that has remained a definitive introduction to physics for decades. Ranging from the most basic principles of Newtonian physics through such formidable theories as general relativity and quantum mechanics, Feynman's lectures stand as a monument of clear exposition and deep insight. Now, we are reintroducing the printed books to the trade, fully corrected, for the first time ever, and in collaboration with Caltech. Timeless and collectible, the lectures are essential reading, not just for students of physics but for anyone seeking an introduction to the field from the inimitable Feynman.
Stunning three-volume slipcased set containing the most comprehensive in-depth companion to Tolkien's life and works ever published, including synopses of all his writings, and a Tolkien gazetteer, who's who and chronology. The three volumes contained in this slipcase, written by two of the foremost experts on J.R.R. Tolkien, comprise the definitive handbook to one of the most popular authors of the 20th century. Tolkien's progress is traced from his birth in South Africa in 1892, to the battlefields of France and the lecture-halls of Leeds and Oxford, to his success as the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, until his death in 1973. His many academic and literary achievements, his public reception, and his enduring fame are examined in detail. The first volume in this set is a Chronology of Tolkien's life and works, the most extensive biographical resource about him ever published. Thousands of details have been drawn from letters, contemporary documents in libraries and archives, and a wide variety of other published and unpublished sources. Assembled together, they form a portrait of Tolkien in all his aspects: the distinguished scholar of Old and Middle English, the capable teacher and administrator, the devoted husband and father, the brilliant creator of Middle-earth. The second and third volumes, the Reader's Guide, is an indispensable introduction to Tolkien's life, writings, and art. It includes histories and discussions of his works; analyses of the components of his vast 'Silmarillion' mythology; brief biographies of persons important in his life; accounts of places he knew; essays on topics such as Tolkien's interests and attitudes towards contemporary issues, ideas found in his works, adaptations, and invented languages; and checklists of his published works, his poetry, his pictorial art, and translations of his writing.
