For over a year, the photographer and journalist Gabriele Galimberti visited more than fifty countries and created colourful images of boys and girls in their homes and neighborhoods with their most prized possessions: their toys. From Texas to India, Malawi to China, Miata, Fiji and the Philippines, Galimberti recorded the spontaneous and natural joy that unites kids despite their diverse backgrounds. Whether the child owns a veritable fleet of miniature cars or a single stuffed monkey, the pride that Galimberti captures is moving, funny and thought provoking.
In the summer of 2009, James May--a co-presenter on BBC TV´s Top Gear--embarked on a great adventure. Helped by children of all ages, he built a range of classic toys for his popular show. This high-spirited book captures those escapades, with explanations of how May constructed the projects as well as with diagrams, illustrations, and informal photographs taken during the filming. The fun creations included an Airfix, a model Spitfire constructed from the first 1:1 scale kit for that plane, and the world´s first full-size Lego house. Plus, May gives step-by-step instructions for 12 simple items--like colorful Meccano Glasses--anyone can make at home.

Nature Spirits, Spirit Guides, and Ghosts:How to Talk with and Photograph Beings of Other Realms Atala Dorothy Toy
A puzzling photograph, a box filled with faded toy horses, and a single fractured memory are all that Maya has left of her mother. In Grandmother´s house in California, she lives like a captive, tethered by Grandmother´s rules: no talk of her mother, no friends, no foolishness of any kind...until a shocking event changes everything. A world away, in the rugged Wyoming wilderness, a wild mustang called Artemisia runs free, belonging only to the stars. In a land where mountain lions and wranglers pose an ever-present threat, she must vigilantly protect her new foal...until a devastating act separates them from their band. Like a braided rein, Maya´s and Artemisia´s lives will ultimately intertwine. Together, they hold the key to each other´s survival. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kathleen McInerney.

´Perched on the back of a sunlit chair was something about 9 inches tall and shaped rather like a plump toy penguin with a nose-job. It appeared to be wearing a one-piece knitted jumpsuit of pale grey fluff with brown stitching, complete with an attached balaclava helmet. From the face-hole of the fuzzy balaclava, two big, shiny black eyes gazed up at me trustfully. Kweep, it said quietly.´ When author Martin Windrow met the tawny owlet that he christened Mumble, it was love at first sight. Raising her from a fledgling, through adolescence and into her prime years, Windrow recorded every detail of their time living together (secretly) in a south London tower block, and later in a Sussex village. This is the touching, intriguing and eccentric story of their 15-year relationship, complete with photographs and illustrations of the beautiful Mumble. Along the way, we are given fascinating insight into the ornithology of owls - from their evolution and biology to their breeding habits and hunting tactics. The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar is a witty, quirky and utterly charming account of the companionship between one man and his owl.
