An action-packed, high concept, time-travelling adventure. Full of animal magic and with an epic wolf character. Linked to a website with ‘Meet the Character’ profiles, book excerpt and background stories. Jack Tideswell’s parents died in a tragic diving accident while exploring the underwater ruins of the Pharos lighthouse in Egypt. So Jack wants nothing to do with adventure. Until, that is, a seagull delivers a strange disc – addressed to him in his own handwriting – and he’s catapulted briefly into another time. In the blink of an eye, all kinds of magic are let loose, and Jack finds himself aboard an ocean liner in the throes of a Titanic-like disaster. It all links back to Pharos, the seventh wonder of the world. An ancient power needs to be restored. Can Jack learn to navigate time before it’s too late to save the one person who can help him unravel the secrets of the disc? Whether he likes it or not, there’s no more hiding away. And no looking back. Especially when Alpha is watching. A wolf who sees all there is to see... For readers aged 10 plus, The Mirror of Pharos is a contemporary fantasy with the inventiveness of Philip Reeve’s sci-fi, the excitement of J.K. Rowling’s plots and the timeless quality of a Philippa Pearce classic. ‘A wonderful mix of magic and reality that reminds me of the early books in the Harry Potter series.’ The Bookbag

Illuminating the author’s unshakable faith in the power of music in people’s lives, this text draws upon the fields of literature, philosophy, psychology, and religious thought to highlight the importance of music in an increasingly chaotic and techno-centric world. Issues such as the folly of the work/play mindset and the relationship of music to time’s inexorable passage are discussed, as are many ways in which music can lead to a deeper understanding of the human condition. The superficiality of the market-driven world of professional pop music and the ineffectual approach of traditional music education are also explored.

When she's summoned before The Council, she learns that the afterlife isn't just an eternity of leisure.

They return to earth together for Riley's first assignment, a Radiant Boy who's been haunting a castle in England for centuries. Many Soul Catchers have tried to get him to cross the bridge and failed. But all of that was before he met Riley . . .

Originally published in 1989 by Ticknor & Fields, Brian Kiteley’s Still Life with Insects is the intensely focused chronicle of Elwyn Farmer, an amateur entomologist, who uses the field notes of his insect sightings to examine and reweave the tattered fragments of his life. In a series of visually powerful and emotionally breathtaking vignettes Kiteley distills the transient beauty of the natural world and lays bare the suffering and joy of one man’s life from his maturity in the post-war years to very old age in the 19809’s. His striking narrative technique aptly captures the experience we all have as we struggle to make sense of what it means to be human in the face of the inevitable passage of time.

"This is an incredible story. As long as you don't mind getting kicked in the gut, shedding a few tears, and having your heart squeezed at the pain the characters go through, you'll love this book. It's simple, yet elegant. Painful, yet heartwarming. It is, put simply, an incredible story told well." Mark Paxon - author of One Night in Bridgeport'You know how sometimes, you have these moments when everything in your life just falls into place in one perfect moment and you look around and think, this is it; this is what life is about, this exact, perfect moment in life that I'm living right now. You may not be rich, or have a job you love. But something in your life, your family, a friend, your dog who loves you unconditionally, or your partner/wife/husband/lover, something or someone just occasionally breaks through the stresses of the everyday bullshit and makes you stop and smile and think....oh yes. This, this moment right here, is what it's all about. That's how I felt every second of every minute when I was with Pearl. She is the stars, the sun, and the moon. The butterflies, the rainbows, the puppies, the music, the chocolate, the soft cushions, spring flowers. The jacket that keeps you warm on a cold winter's day. She is everything that is beautiful in this world.'Charlie is exactly the kind of guy fathers want their daughters to bring home. Reliable, loyal and devastatingly sweet, any girl would be lucky to have him. Or so his mum frequently says. In the small coastal New Zealand town where he was born and grew up though, love has so far managed to elude him, and he passes his days behind the counter of the local bookshop working for a boss suffering from the early onslaught of dementia. Then fiery Pearl blows into the bay, nursing a broken heart and a tragic secret. She's determined to see out the winter in her Grandmothers run down beach house, with nothing but wine and the cry of gulls to disturb her solitude.Their paths cross after she falls asleep in the bookshop, and their resulting love will devastate a town and leave no one untouched. Charlie and Pearl is a story of unconventional love; of finding that spare part you never knew you were missing, and of what happens when love is simply not enough.

"If I got to be God for one day, I'd like to say I'd end world hunger and create world peace. But I wouldn't. Because if God could fix the big stuff, he'd have done it already." Malin knows she can't fix the big stuff in her life. Instead, she watches from the sidelines, as her dad yells, her brother lies, and her mum falls apart. At least after she meets Hanna, she has a friend to help her. Because being Malin is complicated - learning how to kiss, what to wear to prom, and what to do when you upset the prettiest, meanest girl in school. It's tough fitting in when you're different. But what if it's the world that's weird, not you? A beautiful, funny and honest coming-of-age story that never pretends life is perfect.
