A gripping children’s story from War Horse author and former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo. “We all knew what was going to happen. We’d seen it before. A ship about to founder staggers before she falls. A huge wave broke over her stern and she did not come upright again.” Life on the Scilly Isles in 1907 is bleak and full of hardship. Laura’s twin brother, Billy, disappears, and then a storm devastates everything. It seems there’s little hope. But then the Zanzibar is wrecked on the island’s rocks, and everything changes . . . The Wreck of the Zanzibar is a gripping historical adventure from the author of An Eagle in the Snow, Listen to the Moon, Shadow, and An Elephant in the Garden. Michael Morpurgo is the master storyteller of such modern classic children's books as War Horse, Friend or Foe, Private Peaceful, and Kensuke's Kingdom. He has written more than one hundred books for children and won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children’s Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times.

From the bestselling author of Absurdistan, a hilarious tour through small but very strange places. No man is an island. But lots of strange men live on them. In the Kurils, off northern Japan, World War II is still being fought between Japan and Russia, both hell-bent on claiming this tiny island group as their territory. The Galapagos Islands may be home to some of the world's most astonishing flora and fauna but it's also home to Ecuador's gerrymander ambitions and has the tear gas, riots and police barricades to prove it. Iceland, the world's 'purest' genetic community, is a place where everyone is blonde, beautiful - and thoroughly in-bred as a result of zero immigration. And in Spitzbergen, residents can choose to live in the neat and tidy, polar-bear hunting Norwegian half or in the mountain of garbage, rust and dysfunction that is the Soviet half. In more than a decade of international reporting, Eric Campbell has covered wars, famines, presidencies, and revolution. In the islands he surveys here he finds microcosms of society, complete with long-lasting blood feuds, hidden wars, bizarre histories; all the vanities, hopes and rivalries of great powers. Wry, witty and clever, with a wonderful eye for the absurd, Eric Campbell is the Bill Bryson of the small, odd forgotten places around the world and what they tell us about the human condition.

‘Zanzibar was to be a profound influence on my early life, it became home to me, this was the world I knew and the place I would always be naturally drawn back to. Zanzibar was one of those special places, with even the name evoking ideas of an enchanted land. I was fortunate to live there at a time when it was a peaceful autonomous island, spared from the revolution that later tore it apart.’ Starting from his early days spent in this exotic island when it was an independent Sultanate, Roger Webber goes on to describe his travels throughout Africa, covering a period of 66 years and nearly every country in that vast continent. It includes the great journey from Cairo to Cape, travelling up the Nile, and later on passage down the other great river of Africa, the Congo. In Return to Zanzibar, Roger begins with his memories of an island explored in detail, recounting every aspect of its geography and history and examining how this small country had so much influence over such a large part of the continent. Following Zanzibar's amalgamation with Tanganyika to form Tanzania, in which many of the ways of the original country disappeared, Roger returned as a doctor to be faced with epidemics that were ravaging East Africa at that time. From this base he explored surrounding countries and much of the rest of the continent. Return to Zanzibar is a personal story of Africa in all its many facets.

A new wartime classic from two legends of children's literature! Michael Morpurgo and Michael Foreman have teamed up with the British Legion to tell a new story inspired by the history of the poppy. When John McCrae wrote his famous poem "In Flanders Field" among the trenches of war-torn Belgium, neither he nor a local village girl who saves a discarded draft of it could know what enormous power that poem would have on generations to come.
