    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'.

    Social historian Julie Summers looks over the period during the Second World War when thousands of families had to make the heartbreaking decision to leave everything they knew and start a new life in a location where Hitler's Luftwaffe could not reach them - and the role Britain's country houses had to play in this.

    Based on extensive research and interviews, Julie conveys the problems these families faced during the early years of the conflict and examines the locations that they were sent to. She also looks at the problems and social stigmas they had to face and overcome in each different area.

    This hardback shines a light on a previously untold story from the Second World War. It looks at how people from all walks of life found themselves in these most esteemed surroundings and how the juxtaposition of splendour and opulence was at odds with their temporary residents' needs.
