Hooray for Knickers

Hooray for Knickers

Author: Jill Lewis, Deborah Allwright Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/04/2016

A fantastically funny madcap royal adventure from Jill Lewis and Deborah Allwright where EVERYONE ends up wearing knickers - even the King! An epic series of misheard orders leads to silliness upon silliness and a GIANT fold-out page at the end. King Grouchy desperately wants to be friends with Prince Jolly so he invites him for a swim - everything at the palace has to be perfect! But when the King is in a bad mood his servants keep hiding and can't hear his orders - could Prince Jolly end up with goats instead of floats and smelly kippers instead of flippers? From some of the creators behind Don't Read This Book, Mrs Vickers' Knickers and The Night Pirates comes a riotous romp packed with silly rhymes (and plenty of knickers) - perfect for reading out loud. Deborah Allwright has made a dramatic impact on the picture book scene since the publication of The Night Pirates. Thanks to the hugely successful She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain and the critically acclaimed Don't Read this Book! Deborah has become one of the UK's most celebrated and successful illustrators. She works in a studio in Islington, stopping only to attend designer clothes sales, and to do a spot of DJing at music festivals. Jill Lewis is actually two people! Jill Walkinton and Alison Lewis combine their talents (education and theatre production) to bring a fresh, inventive voice to the world of picture books. For Egmont, they have written Don't Read This Book, Coconut Jack and Something Delicious.

Workers and Politics in Occupied Austria, 1945-55

Workers and Politics in Occupied Austria, 1945-55

Author: Jill Lewis Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/01/2015

In March 1946 Winston Churchill warned the world about the 'Iron Curtain' that had descended across Europe and behind which now lay, he said, the eight capitals of the ancient states of central and Eastern Europe. In fact, one of these eight, Vienna, escaped absorption into the Soviet bloc. Between 1945 and 1955, Austria and its capital were occupied by the Four (increasingly mutually antagonistic) Allied Powers. During this decade of confusion, insecurity, suspicion and fear, and confronted by poverty and the threat of famine, Austria's political and economic elites joined forces to promote a culture of political unity and harmony from which eventually emerged the Austrian model of corporatism, commonly referred to as the Social Partnership. This book sets the social and economic difficulties that Austria encountered in this crucial decade in their international context and examines how they were contained. The author also discusses the long-term implications of the Austrian culture of consensus, not only for the way in which the country dealt with its recent past, but also for present-day political developments. A remarkable study that will be essential reading for students and scholars of twentieth-century European history. -- .
