    Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy is one of the most compelling and influential series of modern times and now the acclaimed author is returning to the world of these novels with The Book of Dust, the first book in a new set of three.

    Malcolm Polstead and his daemon, Asta, live with his parents at the Trout Inn, near Oxford. Just across the River Thames is the Godstow Priory, where the nuns live. Malcolm knows the River Thames well through his canoeing (his boat is called La Belle Sauvage) and soon learns the priory has a guest staying - a baby by the name of Lyra Belacqua...

    An intelligent read that touches on all the vital and important themes Northern Lights (or The Golden Compass, if you prefer), The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass covered, this is a must-have for readers of all ages who enjoy thought-provoking fiction.

    This title has been shortlisted for 2018's British Book Award Children's Book of the Year and the YA Book Award.

    Inspiring Artists tells us what it is that makes some famous artists so important and memorable, not only in terms of their artistic legacy, but also as to their impact on the wider world. It explores their life and times through significant pieces of their art, looking at the work in terms of its context, from conflict (Goya), to festivities (Bruegel) to personal struggle (Van Gogh). Each work is also considered in terms of its style, technique and artistic innovation. Leonardo da Vinci was a brilliant inventor, engineer, scientist and architect, but he is most famous for being an artist. His fascination and skill in representing the world around him made him a celebrity during his lifetime and an inspiration to many artists both then and now, from Raphael to Andy Warhol.
