    Tying in with the second series of ITV's hit drama series, Victoria, this book provides an in-depth look at the passionate and complicated relationship the Queen embarked on with Prince Albert.

    Both Victoria and Albert were both strong-willed and although they were brought together by an arranged marriage, this did not dampen the spark between them. They were first cousins but could not have had more different personalities - she was impulsive and emotional while he was cautious and logical. They were a very successful couple and this book looks at the differences between their public persona and their private lives.

    Based on the couple's letters and diaries, this book provides a tantalising glimpse into the life of the couple . It's full of rich historical detail and gives insight into this incredible relationship.

    There are also character profiles, interviews with actors and an overview of the production, costumes and props of the show.

    Written by Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner Peter Bently and illustrated by Anna Chernyshova, Santa Selfie explains how it's not easy to relax on holiday when you're as famous as the man in the red suit.

    Wherever he goes, Santa is recognised and he's beginning to find it a struggle. All he wants is a break away from Christmas but whether he's in Paris, Sydney or at the Great Wall of China, someone always recognises him. That's a problem when you're one of the most famous people in the world...

    He can't even do his hobbies or eat his lunch without getting interrupted for a photograph. This heart-warming and funny hardback has a smart message about the perils of being famous and even comes with a pull-out photo frame so your children can see themselves in one of Santa's festive selfies.
