Rocky Shores explores the species, communities and landscape of the narrow strip of land surrounding much of the British Isles. While it may be limited in extent, this habitat is incredibly biodiverse, and this insightful book details all the patterns of marine life that might be encountered on sheltered and exposed shores, from the inhospitable splash zone to the repeatedly submerged lower shore, and everything in between. Comprehensive chapters accompanied by exceptional photographs cover various members of the rocky-shore community in turn: striking lichens that colourfully adorn the rocks; seaweeds that have sustained human settlements for millennia; mysterious and often spectacular worms and their relatives; molluscs with variously configured shells; spiny-skinned echinoderms that move using tube feet; arthropods that range from tiny marine insects to heavy-clawed crabs; and microscopic species that drift around at the mercy of the tides. Rock pools provide pockets of diversity dotted across the shore, while the strandline at the high-tide mark supports a unique assemblage of microbes and invertebrates that attracts a variety of birds and mammals. For anyone with a love of the shore – from the occasional rockpooler to avid naturalists – this book is a must for your collection.

Wanda, ein kleines polnisches Mädchen, trägt in der Schule jeden Tag dasselbe fadenscheinige blaue Kleid, obwohl sie sagt, dass sie zu Hause in ihrem Schrank hundert wunderschöne Kleider hat. Die anderen Kinder in ihrer Klasse glauben ihr das natürlich nicht, und als Peggy anfängt, Wanda deswegen tagtäglich zu hänseln, machen alle mit. Auch Peggys beste Freundin Maddie ist mit dabei, aber im Geheimen fragt sie sich, ob sie den Mut aufbringen wird, sich gegen ihre Klasse zu stellen und Wanda zu verteidigen. Bis Wanda plötzlich eines Tages nicht mehr in die Schule kommt und es sich aufklärt, was es mit den hundert Kleidern auf sich hat, ist es schon fast zu spät. Doch Maddie und Peggy lernen daraus, wie wichtig Verständnis und Mitgefühl im Leben sind ... Eleanor Estes zu Herzen gehende Geschichte, ausgezeichnet mit dem wichtigsten Kinderbuchpreis Amerikas und verpflichtende Schullektüre, berührt seit über 70 Jahren Leser alle Altersstufen mit ihrer zeitlosen Botschaft von Mitgefühl und Verstehen.

Ever wondered why bad musicians always win the Eurovision Song Contest, or how incompetent politicians get elected? You need some Quirkology in your life. While other scientists beaver away on obvious problems, Richard Wiseman has been busy uncovering the secret ingredients of charisma, exploring how our personalities are shaped by when we are born and examining why people usually miss the obvious signs of their partner's infidelity. Using scientific methods to investigate offbeat topics that interest the general public as well as the scientific community, Quirkology brings a new understanding to the backwaters of the human mind and takes us to places where mainstream scientists fear to tread. Comparable to Freakonomics, but British, far more populist, and a lot funnier. Findings include: How does your surname influence your life? What does the way you walk reveal about your personality? Why should women have men write their personal ads? What is the funniest joke in the world?

Tamina, eine junge Emigrantin, versucht nach dem Tod ihres Mannes, seine ersten Briefe aus dem okkupierten Prag nach Paris zu schaffen, um sich ihr verblassendes Glück wieder in Erinnerung zu rufen. Ein Prager Dissident versucht, die Briefe aus der Zeit seiner Liebe zu einer Kommunistin in die Hand zu bekommen, um sie zu vernichten, da sie ihn zu kompromittieren scheinen und sein Bild als Held des Widerstands zerstören. 'Das Buch vom Lachen und Vergessen' ist ein Rollen- und Vexierspiel der Figuren und Geschichten; ein Roman in Variationen, in dem Kundera von Menschen erzählt, die es wagen, sich dem Vergessen (in der Liebe und der Geschichte) zu widersetzen, und er tut dies mit einem Lachen und der ihm eigenen feinen Ironie. Hat, so fragt er dabei, die Geschichte einen Sinn, oder treibt sie mit den Menschen nur absurde Scherze, auf die das Lachen und das Vergessen die einzige Antwort sein können?
