When the first passengers climbed aboard the earliest ever underground train in 1863, it would have been impossible to imagine how the London Underground would change and grow over the next 150 years. From smelly steam trains running along a single track to the innovative electric tube system speeding through a vast network of tunnels beneath our feet today, the London Underground keeps this busy city on the move. The Story of the London Underground tells the extraordinary history of the world's most famous underground railway. Explore Victorian London as the Brunels dig deep under the Thames. Take refuge in the tunnels during World War II and discover which world leader's bath was found in an abandoned station. Marvel at the famous fossil wall, deserted ghost stations and unusual spiral escalators that are all part of the London Underground's fascinating history. Published in association with TfL, this beautiful book from Blue Peter Award-winning author David Long and exceptionally talented artist Sarah McMenemy tells a captivating story of the London Underground that will delight children and grown-ups alike.

Popular re-imaginings of Alice and her topsy-turvy world reveal many ways of eliciting enchantment and shaping make-believe. Late 20th century and 21st century adaptations interact with the source texts and with each other--providing readers with an elaborate fictional universe. This book fully explores today's multi-media journey to Wonderland.

Blue-Eyed Son

The Story of an Adoption

'Blue-Eyed Son is a personal history, but its themes - family, self-identity and filial love - are universal' Daily Mail Raised in a comfortable middle-class home, Nicky Campbell's Scottish Protestant family cared for and nurtured him as their own, while remaining open about the fact that he'd been adopted. His father - an ex-army man - and his mother helped him to a good school and a good university. Nicky rarely thought of his birth parents, until a combination of an imploding marriage and a chance meeting with a private dectective led him to track down his birth mother. Nicky Campbell brilliantly recalls their reunion and tentative steps towards a relationship, evoking all the complex and deep-seated emotions that being reunited elicited in each of them. But it soon became clear that there was more to Nicky's background than he expected. In this emotionally gripping and refreshingly honest memoir, Nicky Campbell describes the many sides of a family's dark history, and how it feels to find out where you come from.

Ranging from Victorian picture stories to Disney classics and contemporary works on environmental issues, pop-up and movable books have amused, enlightened, and entertained children and adults for almost 150 years. Although most movable books are designed primarily for children, a significant number of fiction and nonfiction titles are intended for adult readers. Despite their enormous popularity, they are rarely reviewed or included in lists of children's books, and are seldom purchased for circulating libraries. Many are unindexed. Montanaro identifies, indexes, and describes over 1,600 titles by publication date, personal names of contributors, and series titles.
