Pick up a pen and discover your favourite cities in these mind-bending puzzles.

Spiroglyphics are a totally original idea from the twisted mind of genius puzzle-designer, Thomas Pavitte!

At first glance, spiroglyphics appear to be nothing but simple spirals. But if you look a little closer you'll see that the spiroglyphics are in fact two spirals, joined at the middle, and varying subtly in width as they wind to the centre. It's only when you pick up a pen and start to colour them that they come alive...

Spiroglyphics: Around the World brings together a selection of landmarks from some of the world's favourite cities, including:
· Paris
· Berlin
· New York
· Rome
· London
· Barcelona
· Hong Kong

Fun to create and amazing to look at, the Spiroglyphics will blow your mind and make amazing artworks for your wall!

Mindfulness for Children

Uz Afzal
Authors:
Uz Afzal

This inspirational and timely guide is about how mindfulness helps children, why it's becoming more popular and how to do it. It combines practical exercises that children can complete alongside their parents/carers with a fun and engaging commentary on the theory and science behind the practice. Uz takes you through the day, from waking, eating, learning and appreciating to sleeping, including exercises for how to cope with exams, how to deal with the screen culture and what mindfulness practises you can do in holiday time. Together, this gives the reader an enjoyable and accessible path into the practice of mindfulness for children.Many schools are not able to include mindfulness in their curricula and educators and parents alike are eager to have more guidance on how to support children. This current era of rising levels of child mental health, with the pressures in schools as well as the increasingly fast-paced, digitized and image-obsessed world is having a really negative effect.1, 2 Breathe is a positive and practical tool that will give children the skills to manage their feelings, increase their confidence and concentration levels as well as aiding their transition to secondary school. And it can help parents and caregivers, too, by promoting happiness and relieving stress.

Authors:
Dominic Roskrow

What can we expect from the best whiskey producers in America today? Whiskey America showcases some of the most exciting new styles of whiskey and why they are so special. With fascinating interviews with some of the leading characters in the recent distilling revolution, this absorbing book relates the stories of how successful lawyers, doctors and city slickers made the life-changing decision to turn their backs on conventional careers to pursue the 'good life' of making spirits in the most far-flung outreaches of America. And thank goodness they did, because this new generation of distillers not only customized conventional whiskey styles but also invented new ones never seen before. Whiskey America investigates how best to enjoy the new whiskies - in cocktails, with food, mixed or straight - and looks forward to where these exciting American spirits are going next.

Exciting makes include terrariums and kaleidoscopes, whilst wacky games cover everything from Balloon Stomp to Sticky Note Scramble. All 101 ideas are designed to be achievable with little or no parental help, and only use materials that you already have around the house. With a wealth of creative and fun suggestions to keep you amused, you might not even notice that the rain has stopped.
