    Among this book's features are 'The Lore of Weather', which is a guide to the myths, legends and old wives' tales told about the weather; 'Lost in Translation', an observation of the colloquial names for weather around the country including mizzle; and 'Extreme Weather', which looks at the most bizarre events inspired by weather - including a downpour of frogs and fish!

    Do you fancy a change from being human? This bright and beautiful set shows you how to take inspiration from flamingos and unicorns.

    Flamingos are strong, independent and fabulous. They can brighten any room and will do whatever they want. Even when life throws a flamingo a curveball, they're ready to embrace it. This little book works as a pick-me-up and will help anyone boost their confidence and be more brash by following the actions of flamingo: photobombing; not following the crowd; and embracing his pinkness.

    Be a Unicorn explains how it's far more fun, magical and positive to be a unicorn than a human being. Illustrated with adorable (and adorkable) creatures, each spread comes with a funny or inspiring quote that will encourage you to follow your dreams: 'Being different could be hard, but Unicorn embraced it'; 'Unicorn decided to wear the bikini'; 'Unicorn found his smile was quite infectious'.
