Or, at least, this is what Emily's housekeeper is claiming in court...

    One of the world's favourite mystery writers, this tale is joined by 11 other short stories (including the exclusive Poirot and the Regatta Mystery) and four Hercule Poirot novels.

    This collection contains three witty reads from the inimitable Gerald Durrell, the bestselling author of My Family and Other Animals. You'll have been watching the story of his life on ITV's hit drama, The Durrells and now you can read some of his quirky thoughts on all kinds of subjects.

    Marrying off Mother and Other Stories is a wonderful collection of stories (some true, some not so true...) full of eccentric characters and absurd situations. Gerald talks about when he helped his mother try and find a new husband; and the acquisition of a strongly perfumed pig named Esmerelda...

    Beasts in my Belfry showcases Gerald's sharp eye for observing humour in any situation and has him explaining how from the age of 2, the only thing he ever wanted to do was study animals. It then goes on to become a charming account of his first job in 1945 as a student keeper at Whipsnade Zoo. He talks about the awesome animals he used to keep company - including a lion who was a dab hand at ventriloquism and a brown bear he used to enjoy singing duets with.

    Rosy is My Relative was Gerald's first novel and it focuses on a 30-year-old man who receives an unexpected inheritance - #500 and an elephant called Rosy who has a thirst for liquor... Gerald decided there's only one thing to do - he's going to give the elephant to the circus.

    These perfect pirate picture books from Richard Dungworth and Sharon Harmer are filled with fun rhyming text and beautiful illustrations that will encourage your children to go on a seafaring adventure - learning plenty of morals along the way.

    In Five Minutes to Bed, Captain Cutlass' crew are not tired enough to go to sleep (sound familiar?) and he has to find all sorts of jobs for them to do. They end up washing, scrubbing and stitching all sorts of things before going to bed.

    Teatime for Pirates will strike a chord for any parent with picky eaters as the crew decide that sausages are most certainly not pirate food and that 'you don't eat those at sea'. It also explains how important eating is for energy levels; and All Hands on Deck provides winter fun as the crew decide it's far too cold to go outside and work. How can the captain persuade them to have some freezing fun?

Demelza is trying to adapt to the ways of the gentry bring her only heartache and headaches, despite the joy of the first child. And Ross begins a bitter struggle for the rights of miners with his enemy, George Warleggan.

    Period writing of the highest calibre, this two-book set is ideal for fans of the Poldark show and those yet to read the incomparable works of Winston Graham.

    Sure to appeal to fans of Call the Midwife and Our Girl, this is a wonderfully nostalgic trio of real-life reads that shines a light on what life was like for the women left at home during the wartime era and beyond.

    The touching GI Brides takes a look at four girls who left their homeland to follow their new husbands across the Atlantic shortly after the end of the War. Not only did these girls - Gwendolyn, Rae, Margaret and Sylvia - have to cope with a new culture, they also had to get to know their husbands outside of the army... But after the Blitz, they were sure they could cope with anything and this book reveals how much fun they had!

    The Sweethearts is about those women who worked at the Rowntree's factory in York from the 1930s right the way through to the 1980s and how they kept the treats coming, no matter what was thrown at them... The Sugar Girls follows the women who worked at Tate & Lyle's factory in the East End during the Second World War - they're the ones who kept Britain sweet during the time of rations.
