The Time-travelling Caveman Audiobook

The Time-travelling Caveman

Author: Terry Pratchett Narrator: Ben Bailey Smith Release Date: September 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. *A brand new collection of short stories from the incredible Sir Terry Pratchett!* Imagination is an amazing thing. It can take you to the top of the highest mountain, or down to the bottom of the deepest depths of the sea. This where it took Doggins on his Awfully Big Adventure: a quest full of magic and flying machines. (And the world’s best joke – trust me, it’s hilarious.) It took three young inventors to the moon (where they may or may not have left a bottle of lemonade) and a caveman on a trip to the dentist. You can join them on these adventures, and many more, in this incredible collection of stories . . . From the greatest imagination there ever was. Written for local newspapers when Terry Pratchett was a young lad, these never previously published stories are packed full of anarchic humour and wonderful wit. A must-have for Terry fans . . . and young readers looking for a fix of magic. © Terry Pratchett 2020 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

Just Like You Audiobook

Just Like You

Author: Nick Hornby Narrator: Ben Bailey Smith, Hattie Ladbury Release Date: September 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. 'Hornby is the poet of the everyday' Observer Lucy married just the sort of man you might expect: a university graduate who runs his own business. Unfortunately he turned out to have serious dependency issues. Joseph is shaking off the memory of his last date, a girl who ticked all the right boxes and also drove him up the wall. On an average Saturday morning in a butcher's shop in North London, Lucy and Joseph meet on opposite sides of the counter. She is a teacher and mother of two, with a past she is trying to forget; he is an aspiring DJ with a wide-open future that maybe needs to start becoming more focused. Lucy and Joseph are opposites in almost all ways. Can something life-changing grow from uncommon ground? Nick Hornby's brilliantly observed, tender and brutally funny new novel gets to the heart of what it means to fall headlong in love with the best possible person - someone who may not be just like you at all. 'Hornby is a writer who dares to be witty, intelligent and emotionally generous at once' New York Times 'Hornby's prose is artful and effortless, his spiky wit as razored as a number-two cut' Independent 'Hornby writes with a funny, fresh voice which skewers male and female foibles with hilarious accuracy' Guardian © Nick Hornby 2020 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

Hold Tight: Black Masculinity, Millennials and the Meaning of Grime Audiobook

Hold Tight: Black Masculinity, Millennials and the Meaning of Grime

Author: Jeffrey Boakye Narrator: Ben Bailey Smith Release Date: July 2020

Hold Tight is the book that kick started the 'Grime Library'. Bursting into bookshops in July 2017 to rave reviews and a sold out event at Rough Trade East, Hold Tight paved the way for Grime-related books such as Wiley's Eskiboy, Dan Hancox's Inner City Pressure and DJ Target's Grime Kids. Celebrating over sixty key songs that make up Grime's DNA, Jeffrey Boakye explores the meaning of the music and why it has such resonance in the UK. Boakye also examines the representation of masculinity in the music and the media that covers it. Both a love letter to Grime and an investigation into life as a black man in Britain today, Hold Tight is insightful, very funny and stacked with sentences you'll want to listen to again and again. "Witty and perceptive, confident and charming-and its flow and timing are flawless." THE GUARDIAN
