Winnie-the-Pooh

Winnie-the-Pooh

Author: A.A. Milne, E.H. Shepard Format: Paperback Release Date: 06/05/2004

  September 2009 Good Housekeeping selection.   On My Bookshelf by Penny Smith... Winnie The Pooh by AA Milne  is brilliant because people are often like the animals – one of my brothers was like Eeyore, quite gloomy; I was like Rabbit, always tidying up. It was the first book I read on my own, so AA Milne was responsible for me becoming a bookworm, to the extent that when we were about to go out as a family, I used to hide behind the curtains reading, hoping my parents would forget there were four children and leave me behind.   GMTV presenter Penny Smith is passionate about books and is now a novelist herself; her latest fiction, After The Break, is published by Harper Perennial.

When a Billion Chinese Jump Voices from the Frontline of Climate Change

When a Billion Chinese Jump Voices from the Frontline of Climate Change

Author: Jonathan Watts Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/04/2011

'If everyone in China jumps at exactly the same time, it will shake the earth off its axis and killus all'. What an amazing thought, quoted on the first page of this book (see Opening Extract). It captivated a young child and inspired him to a lifelong interest in the largest population in theworld.For it is the people that make this book - not the politics, not the history and not even, it must be said, the places. They are all here, that is true, but it is the human insights that make this book work. The writer's ageless fascination for a billion people - who live on our planet but in a different world - runs through every page.This is not one sudden earth-shaking jump. It is a gentle, leisurely, thoughtful, interestingjourney. A journey which leads you to a heartfelt plea for a behavioural approach that should be considered by all mankind.   Consistently attentive to human detail, Watts vividly portrays individual lives in a country all too often viewed from outside as a faceless state. No reader of his book - no consumer in the world - can be unaffected by what he presents.
