    Peter and Jane creator Gill Sims returns with another colourful insight into motherhood with Why Mummy Swears.

    The summer holidays have started but Mummy is not going to get any rest - she has two bored moppets to attend to... Just booking sports camps, childcare and time off work has left her exhausted!

    Mummy's also found herself stuck organising the Christmas Fayre - and she's not receiving much help. Meeting her father's new glamorous and younger wife and spending time with her narcissistic mother is also winding her up the wall... No wonder she's cursing with the best of them!

    Philippa Gregory, author of the Cousins' War series, is often regarded as the queen of historical fiction and this meticulously researched novel focuses on the legacy left by Lady Jane Grey, a woman who was Queen of England for nine days.

    Using her position as cousin to the deceased king, her father and his conspirators put her on the throne ahead of the king's half-sister Mary, who quickly mustered an army, claimed her crown and locked Jane in the Tower. When Jane refused to betray her Protestant faith, Mary sent her to the executioner's block... It's here where Jane turned her father's greedy grab for power into a tale of brave and tragic martyrdom.

    Jane leaves all kinds of letters to her younger sister, Katherine, and they're all intended to help her enjoy her beauty, youth and to find love. Katherine's lineage makes her a threat to the insecure and infertile Queen Mary and when news of a secret marriage is revealed by her pregnancy, she is also sent to the tower. She, too, leaves the youngest Grey sister, Mary, a letter with advice.

    Mary is a beautiful dwarf who has been disregarded by the court and she finds it easy to keep secrets. After watching her sisters defy the Queen, Mary knows she is a possible heir to the throne, but she's determined to stay in charge of her own destiny.

    In Roman times, blocks of text were commonly written as blocks without any wordspaces. During the Christian era, texts became more widely read and punctuation started to take on extra importance... This book finds Sunday Times bestselling author Caroline Taggart pointing out what really matters and what doesn't.

    She explains how, to a potential murderer or adulterer for example, there is a world of difference between 'If you are tempted, yield not, resisting the urge to commit a sin' and 'If you are tempted, yield, not resisting the urge to commit a sin'. However, the only surface difference is the positioning of a comma.

    Apostrophes are there to help and to clarify meaning, to convey emphasis and to indicate that you are asking a question of quoting someone else's words... Punctuation is also ideal for telling readers when they should pause for breath.

    This book also contains funny, silly and daft examples of misuse.

    Praised by Fearne Cotton and Jessie Burton, Marianne Power's Help me is the humorous and moving story of the journalist's quest to live according to the rules she found in her self-help books.

    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'.
