A little book of invaluable Unicorn life lessons.

Unicorn took the world by storm with his sweet nature, sunny outlook and positive attitude in the best-selling feel-good book Be a Unicorn. Now he is back with this little book of life lessons.

Looking for some guidance on how to live a happy, sparkling life? Or just wondering which path to trot along? Look no further than Unicorn, the best (and probably only) four-legged, one-horned happiness guru. With enlightenment on every page, let Unicorn teach you how to hopscotch over all of life's trials to a place where the grass definitely grows greener.

With adorable quirky illustrations and wise, thoughtful and often completely hilarious life advice, this is a little book to keep firmly in your pocket, ready to be consulted whenever life gets a little bit tough.

UNICORN WOULD:
Wear the jumper that Granny knitted with pride.
Sing Pharrell in the shower.
Walk in someone else's flip-flops.
Try new things... uhm beetroot juice... pink, yummy.
Make every day count.

UNICORN WOULD NOT EVER (NO THANK YOU MA'AM):
Worry about a bit of dust.
Eat someone else's chocolate.
Blame others - 'my Panda made me do it'.
Dwell too much on the past.
Take things for granted.

Authors:
Lucinda Wilde

Do not fear the wolf. Be the wolf. In a world of flamingos and unicorns, it can be hard to be a warrior. Chilling and musing are fine for some, but the universe needs achievers. For every gatherer, there must be a hunter, for every dreamer, a do-er. The next time there is a full moon, open the window and let it in: it is time to embrace your inner wolf. A spoof-inspirational book that casts a darkly humorous light on the wilder side of animal lore.

Border Control Entrance Exam

Want to find out how British you really are?From the author of Games on Thrones, this unique quiz book probes, exposes and celebrates the true essence of Britishness in all its guises, from chasing cheese downhill and self-deprecation, to naming cakes after Northern towns and always remaining alert for a fruity innuendo.From our stiff upper lips and blithe willingness to form an orderly queue, to our quirky traditions, drunken antics and borderline psychotic leisure pursuits, Brits are renowned throughout the world for being so... darned... British.We're a mass of contradictions, as changeable as the weather in the Scottish highlands, as cosy as a Cornish cream tea, as bright and colourful as a chicken tikka masala, or as morose as a lump of Welsh slate.

Gabrielle Mander

Sunny days and heady nights await you in retirement, not just for two weeks each year, but forever! You have been looking forward to this and have an endless list of things to do, but only once you have sorted out your other half and got him out from under your feet.101 Things to do with a Retired Man is designed to inspire and tease your retiree into having the time of his life and to fill his days (and yours) with sometimes silly, sometimes useful, but always interesting things to do, which do not include lying on the sofa, watching daytime television, tidying the garden to within an inch of its life or stacking and restacking the dishwasher in the most efficient fashion, as apparently only a man can. Retirement is the perfect time to learn a new skill, get in touch with old friends, and explore the great wide open, so get out there and get started! This hilarious look at retirement is cheaper than marriage counselling and makes the perfect tongue-in-cheek gift for anyone facing their (and their husband's) retirement with excitement but more than a little wariness.
