    Jo Nesbo may be best-known for his gritty Nordic crime thrillers, but did you know he's also a most-talented children's author? The Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder series is full of the zest and anarchy of David Walliams and Roald Dahl's most popular novels.

    This collection brings together all four hilarious novels in this bestselling series. The crazy plots revolve around Doctor Proctor - an inventor who dreams of becoming famous. When he creates a super-strength fart powder that can propel people into outer space, he may have just achieved his goal... But he hasn't counted on the ruthless twins Tuis and Trym spoiling his plans. The fart-filled adventure takes in a firework extravaganza, a trip to prison and an escaped anaconda!

    The other books in the series are equally delightfully absurd - Doctor Proctor, Nilly and Lisa have to win a football tournament to save the last of Norway's gold (which has been turned into the trophy), the Doctor works on a Time-Travel Bath Bomb and he and his friends discover a TV show is hypnotising everyone who watches it... Wickedly funny stories for children, including reluctant readers, aged 9+.

    This title is a comprehensive guide to the biological mysteries that lie behind teenage behaviour. Contrary to popular (parental) opinion, teenagers are not the lazy, unpleasant - frankly, spotty - louts they occasionally appear to be. During the teenage years the brain is undergoing its most radical and fundamental change since the age of two. Nicola Morgan's carefully researched, accessible and humorous examination of the ups and downs of the teenage brain has chapters dealing with powerful emotions, the need for more sleep, the urge to take risks, the difference between genders and the reasons behind addiction or depression. The revised edition of this classic book contains important new research, including information about the discovery of mirror neurons and their effect on the teenage brain. It is shortlisted for the 2006 Royal Society's Aventis Prize for Science Books.
