Pharrell Williams Ultimate Fan Book

Pharrell Williams Ultimate Fan Book

Author: Malcolm Croft, Chris Roberts Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/09/2016

In 2003, Pharrell Williams was responsible for (by performing or producing) 43 per cent of all the music played on radio across the USA, and 20 per cent in the UK. His prolific and varied collaborations with scores of the best-known musicians of the twenty-first century have earned Pharrell millions of radio plays, as well as album sales, songwriter credits and dollars. In 2013-14 alone, Pharrell has enjoyed two million-selling singles (in the same month, unbelievably), for the tracks 'Get Lucky' and 'Happy' - the latter earning an Oscar nomination for Best Song. Since 2001, Pharrell has established himself as a respected, and ambitious, musician, composer, fashion designer, businessman, charity-owner and 'universalist', whose star is showing no signs of falling back down to earth.

Cool Mythology Filled with fantastic facts for kids of all ages

Cool Mythology Filled with fantastic facts for kids of all ages

Author: Malcolm Croft Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/08/2016

This fun book, part of the popular Cool series, is a fascinating introduction to world mythology, broken up into handy bite-sized chunks. It covers all the main world mythologies, including Sumerian, Incan, African, Native American, African, Egyptian, Persian, Hindu, Norse and, of course, Greek and Roman, including the famous Olympians (Zeus, Hera, Poseidon and others). It begins with a selection of creation myths from different cultures (for example the Dreamtime of Aboriginal Australian mythology) and delves into individual stories from mythology, such as Perseus meeting Medusa and Pandora's box. It covers fantastical mythological creatures from the fearsome Manticore from Persian legend to the modern-day Yeti, plus giants, dragons and the Phoenix. It explores mythological places like Atlantis and various versions of the afterlife, from the idyllic Arthurian Avalon to the rather less pleasant Yomi, the dark and gloomy underworld of Japanese mythology. Ancient myths are still relevant to today's society, explaining traditions and giving lasting moral lessons. But most of all, they're entertaining adventures that connect us to the past - and this book is the perfect introduction to how cool mythology really is. Word count: 20,000
