The book is an autobiography of my life and covers it all from day one, with my unexpected and untimely arrival, to my finish now and all that went on between in my days before school, my days at school, my time in the British Army and the time in the Kent Fire and Rescue Service and the Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service. I have put into the book things that I think people will find amusing, and also interesting and informative, and lastly of all the things that I think could make people cry. The book is not entirely about things that happed to me during my time while in the Fire Service. I have also taken part in other events that have gone on outside the working environment and having kept a diary during these events which has enabled me to write an accurate and hopefully amusing account of these times. Obviously I have not tried to be amusing or funny when someone has been injured or killed as I think this would not be right or proper. I hope you enjoy reading my book as much as I did when writing it.

Helen Babbs is a self-proclaimed city girl who lives on the second floor of a flat in a chaotic corner of London. An urge to find more green in the city and a stronger connection to the natural world leads her to create her first garden, an organic edible garden on her rooftop. This year-long adventure is the story behind My Garden, the City and Me. The journey begins in the dark of winter, where Babbs finds herself at a seed swap on a February morning, seduced more by packaging than by any true understanding of the plants. As the year progresses, Babbs revels in failures, like waking up bleary eyed and stomping on her seed starts, and triumphs like her summer-ending dinner party made with homegrown produce. Along the way she discovers “that I like gardening in my pajamas and that growing something from seed, watching it develop and then eating its fruits is truly joyful. I’ve daydreamed out there and entertained out there. It’s the force behind new friendships that I’ve forged. The garden has opened my eyes to a whole new side of London and urban living.” My Garden, the City and Me is a lyrical narrative about a twenty-something in search for a bit of wild in her city. The journey is charming, honest, and steeped in the lore of London, a city equally known for its gardens and its grit. In the end Babbs has achieved a new perspective on what it means to live green in the city she loves.

'Wonderfully intense and honest - a poignant manual of how to grow hope against the odds.' Chris Packham, TV presenter and author of Fingers in the Sparkle Jar Finding herself in a new home in Brighton, Kate Bradbury sets about transforming her decked, barren backyard into a beautiful wildlife garden. She documents the unbuttoning of the earth and the rebirth of the garden, the rewilding of a tiny urban space. On her own she unscrews, saws and hammers the decking away, she clears the builders' rubble and rubbish beneath it, and she digs and enriches the soil, gradually planting it up with plants she knows will attract wildlife. She erects bird boxes and bee hotels, hangs feeders and grows nectar- and pollen-rich plants, and slowly brings life back to the garden. But while she's doing this Kate's neighbours continue to pave and deck their gardens locking them away, the wildlife she tries to save is further threatened, and she feels she's fighting an uphill battle. Is there any point in gardening for wildlife when everyone else is drowning the land in poison and cement? Sadly, events take Kate away from her garden, and she finds herself back home in Birmingham where she grew up, travelling the roads she used to race down on her bike in the eighties, thinking of the gardens and wildlife she loved, witnessing more land lost beneath paving stones. If the dead could return, what would they say about the land we have taken, the ancient routes we have carved up, the wildlife we have lost?

You never know what might inspire you. Surprisingly, school has been the source of many of my cases. There’s a whole lot of boring stuff at school. But there are also a whole lot of interesting things that you can learn about. When you find something interesting, like dinosaurs, you never know where it might lead. In case you haven't met me, my name is Courtney Case. I live in Australia. That’s in the Southern Hemisphere between the Pacific and Indian Oceans. We speak English, but we don't have the funny accent you Americans do. We also spell some of our words differently, as you'll probably notice in this book. I go to primary school, where we have grades prep to six, with two classes at each grade level. I’m in grade five. In my spare time, I’m a Private Detective. I’ve got my best friend and trusty sidekick, Laura, to take notes, and my cat, Maggie. Together, we form the Courtney Case Detective Agency – No Case Too Small. Being a Private Detective isn’t always about crime. Things can get lost or go missing by accident. That’s where I’m happy to help out. I love investigating cases, finding the evidence and discovering what really happened. In this case (my second book), I try to discover what happened to the leg of a dinosaur that was shown at our local museum. I mean, how can something as big as a dinosaur leg not be found? Join Courtney Case, the fearless young detective as she tries to solve the mystery of the Dinosaur. Ages 7 to 10 Chapter book Reading level: 3.7

Novelist, critic, lecturer, reviewer, man-about-conferences, David Lodge, as both analyst and practitioner, is one of our foremost experts in the forms of fiction. He is also an uncommonly sympathetic and informed observer of the passing scene, and his penetrating vision is set in a consistently ironic frame. David Lodge's humour can be a devastating weapon, but it is continually engaging because as often as not the sniper's sights are trained on the author himself, and on the curiously mobile, cosmopolitan yet specialist world he inhabits. The essays and reviews collected in this volume are selected from the occasional writings over a span of twenty years, and are all prompted by an impulse - or an invitation - to "write on" some specific topic: a book, a film, an anniversary, a trip abroad. They also reflect the drive of the professional to keep writing, "to keep the muscles of composition exercised." The pieces collected here are designed for a wide audience, and most focus, in more or less direct ways, on Lodge's own work as a novelist. Enthusiasts will take especial pleasure in discovering sources for episodes from his novels, in tracing how reality mutates into fiction - or how on occasion, the process works the other way round.
