Hello, Dear Reader. Are you sitting, lying down, standing on your head, eating a jam sandwich comfortably? Then I'll begin...I want to introduce you to a boy called Vince, whose birthday it is today...Vince is an normal boy with an unusual dislike for animals. Well, you'd feel the same if your father was always working at a zoo and your mother had run off with a lion tamer. Then, on his ninth birthday, Vince discovers he has "the gift". He can talk to animals! You think this is amazing? Perhaps you should meet the spoiled and demanding zoo animals that Vince encounters. There's a penguin who wants fish fingers, a flamingo that wants pink candyfloss and an owl that wants sugared mice. Now Vince is expected to meet their demands...on his birthday! But everyone seems to have forgotten about that...This is a hilarious, delightful debut for 6+ readers by actress, Sophie Thompson, with black and white illustrations by the wonderfully talented Rebecca Ashdown.

When it comes to our skin, nature knows how to soothe, smooth, hydrate, refresh, tone and feed us. It probably won't come as any surprise that rose is not only soothing to the skin, but in traditional Chinese medicine it is soothing to our whole being. Seaweeds are packed with antioxidants that are good both to eat and to turn back the clock with our skin. Manuka honey gives hair softness while coffee is an incredible exfoliator (it really wakes up your skin). Sister & Co teaches that you don't need to spend a fortune on expensive beauty products to feed your skin. All you need is a few ingredients that are available in your local supermarket and the alchemy can begin! Skin Food features 70 nourishing recipes which show you how to make luxurious skincare products from scratch, so you can fill those beautiful glass pots sitting in your bathroom with incredible scrubs, butters and salts. Make your own home into a spa, ease away the stress of the day, and bring yourself back to nature one scoop at a time. Recipes include: - Oatmeal, Honey & Chamomile Tea Facial Polish - Grape & Almond Detox Face Mask - Potato & Green Tea Revitalizing Eye Mask - Brown Sugar & Vanilla Lip Scrub - Olive Oil, Lemon & Sea Salt Foot Scrub - Milk & Honey End-of-day Foot Soak

'For me, cooking has always been about sharing and spending time with pals and family, luring them in with tasty morsels so they'd want to stay all day... These recipes have been handed down, invented, begged and borrowed and ultimately made my own. I hope you'll enjoy making them your own, too.' Sophie Thompson is a much-celebrated, award-winning actress and the winner of Celebrity MasterChef, 2014. My Family Kitchen combines four generations of favourite family recipes, from Granny Annie's Orange and Ginger Chicken to Mum's Spare Ribs. From Uncle James's Pineapple Tarts to Salted Caramel Cookies for her sons. As well as recipes from friends, such as chocolate truffles from the legendary actress Penelope Keith. The recipes were photographed in Sophie's own kitchen - each one is relayed with her trademark humour, warmth and vivaciousness. They are fuss-free, easy-to-follow and delicious. 'A true star of stage and stove.' Derek Jacobi 'I just love Sophie's food. Simple heaven.' Alison Steadman 'If I could, I would keep Sophie in my kitchen cupboard and make her cook for me - but here is the next best think: her cookbook.' Eileen Atkins
