"John Birmingham is a master of good writing and funny lines. He has written a thousand stories, some true, some not so much. These are the best ones and they're so good, and so funny, there has been no barrel-scraping involved. Really, this book could have been much longer. The pieces contained within these pages run the gamut from the early felafel days to the shiny age we live in where Donald Trump is the President of the USA. And it does not shy away from the greatest controversy of our age: potato cake vs potato scallop. These hilarious pieces cover a wide range of topics from food to fitness and politics to pork, in all its glories. And, of course, fashion. Ever the equal opportunist, John Birmingham skewers them all."

When Ernestine Smith moved to California, she reinvented herself as Taffeta— so successfully that she’s now the leader of the most popular clique at La Cambria Middle School. That is, until she’s caught cheating off brilliant but geeky Winslow Fromes and her teacher gives her the option of a fresh start. What Taffeta doesn’t realize is that Mr. Dribble can magically turn her back into Ernestine. The only way to become Taffeta again is to dance with Winslow at the Winterfest dance, but even Winslow wants nothing to do with a loser like Ernestine. Unexpected story twists and an accessible, cinematic style make H. B. Homzie’s first tween novel a perfect M!X book.

As he saw his 50th birthday approaching, Chris Brady realised things had to change. When his children wouldn't leave home, he and his wife did. This is the story of the huge gamble they took, uprooting themselves from the security of a job and home on the idyllic Waiheke Island (population 7000) in New Zealand's Hauraki Gulf, and moving half way around the world to London (population, 12 million). There Chris explored the UK and Europe with the passion and enthusiasm of a twenty-year old. As an historian, he delighted in finding everything from pre-historic ruins to twentieth century icons, most notably the Abbey Rd crossing! And just to prove that old gits can do anything, after three years away, Chris and his wife came home in style. The book details their camping trip through the UK, their trip around Europe, and finally, their epic journey on the Trans-Siberian railway.
