Thomas Pavitte
Authors:
Thomas Pavitte

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

How to eat a peach

Diana Henry
Authors:
Diana Henry

When Diana Henry was sixteen she started a menu notebook (an exercise book carefully covered in wrapping paper) in which she wrote up the meals she wanted to cook. She kept this book for years. Putting a menu together is still her favourite part of cooking. Menus aren't just groups of dishes that have to work on a practical level (meals that cooks can manage), they also have to work as a succession of flavours. But what is perhaps most special about them is the way they can create very different moods - menus can take you places, from an afternoon at the seaside in Brittany to a sultry evening eating mezze in Istanbul. They are a way of visiting places you've never seen, revisiting places you love and celebrating particular seasons. How to Eat a Peach contains many of Diana's favourite dishes in menus that will take you through the year and to different parts of the world.Praise for Simple:'This is everything I want from a cookbook: inspiration, intelligent company, great good-mood food, and beautiful writing' - Nigella Lawson

The Little Book of Mumfulness

Sarah Ford
Authors:
Sarah Ford

You've run out of nappies, you also haven't eaten in well over twelve hours and your house is beginning to look like it has been burgled. If you're at the end of your tether and wondering if it's just you (it isn't), then you need The Little Book of Mumfulness. In The Little Book of Mumfulness, a non-expert mum takes you through the non-perfect guide to getting through motherhood without losing your mind from exhaustion. It includes advice on how to take time throughout the day to restore your equilibrium (like having a long, loud scream in a closet), how to shortcut child-related tasks (by avoiding them altogether) and how to let off steam through mumful exercises. It also includes the news that IT'S NOT JUST YOU who is struggling with the demands of being the 'perfect' mother, and if you need a long swig of prosecco (or any wine from the fridge, or the cupboard for that matter) at the end of a day of parenting, then that is more than a-ok. Most importantly, this book will will help you to remember that being a good mum is about finding your own mumfulness amongst the imperfect chaos.
