This very funny fractured fairy tale with delicious illustrations by the legendary Helen Oxenbury, will appeal to any young child who just loves knocking things down!   This big bad pig is a can-do kind of fellow and the wolves so post-modern in their choice of house building materials, that an unusual solution to the mayhem has to be found.

The first of a series of literary mysteries set in Saudi Arabia. (the 3rd is now out in hardback).  Finding Nouf  gives us an enlightening picture of the lives of everyday Saudi men and women, the common frustration at the constraints of the pious and strict society and a thoroughly addictive couple of sleuths in Nayir ash-Sharqi, a desert guide and Katya Hijazi a lab technician and educated modern woman who dares to work in public and uncover her face.

A gorgeous book of photos of American bears.  This collection will be appreciated by both serious naturalists or those merely looking for the "aw" factor.  It is wonderful to see such joyful pictures of polar bears and a reminder that we should do everything possible to save the environment of these magnificent animals.

They say it only takes 10 to 15 minutes a day AND it's fun....hopefully after I've finished this book I'll never forget anyone's name again, or where I parked the damn car.

A great fat London novel that cleverly exposes all the grubbiness, fragmentation and materialism of society which now prevail.  By focusing on one street and many of the new immigrants currently found there, Lanchester is less Dickens and maybe more Studs Turkel but the stories are always believable, heartbreaking, funny and human.    Loved it.
