The EDGE (Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered) of Existence program is a global conservation initiative aimed at savin...g rare species from extinction. This eye-opening book shows some of the important results of the group's work. Readers accompany real scientists on exciting scientific expeditions from the heights of the Cyclops Mountains in faraway West Papua, to the depths of the Yangtze River in China, to the forests of Haiti in the Caribbean, and the vast stretches of the Gobi Desert. Jonathan and Marilyn Baillie’s lively narratives and stunning photographs introduce such special creatures as the bumblebee bat, so small it can fit on a fingertip; the Bactrian camel, capable of surviving the harshest desert conditions; and the slender loris, a nocturnal beast hunted for its mythical magic powers. There is also a sense of urgency here: these and the eight other animals profiled are evolutionarily unique, which means that if they don’t survive there will be nothing similar left on Earth and our global biodiversity will be weakened forever. read more
Sleeping Beauty is perhaps one of the most well-known and best-loved of all fairy tales. Beautifully illustrated in soft watercolo...rs. Thanks to an unfortunately tasty-looking radioactive garden slug, eleven-year-old Murdo McLeod is now the world's worst superhero. His two powers are pretty unique: the first is sliding up walls. Quite slowly. The second is secreting slippery slime from his skin. (Yes, just as disgusting as it sounds.) In a Scotland full of awesome superheroes, Slugboy has a lot to prove. No one wants help fighting bad guys from someone with a horrible habit of (quite literally) messing things up. He's so underrated, in fact, that when an evil mastermind devises a plan to capture all the other superheroes, Slugboy isn't even on his list. Now, Slugboy has to use his not-so-super and oh-so-gross abilities to free the other superheroes and save the world. Let's hope he doesn't slip up. read more
We and the World, A Book for Boys. This popular classic work by Juliana Horatia Gatty Ewing is in the English language, includes t...he graphics of the original edition. "'A friend in need is a friend indeed'. I have often thought that the biggest bit of good luck (and I was lucky), which be fell me on my outset into the world, was that the man I sat next to in the railway carriage was not a rogue. I travelled third class to Liverpool for more than one reason-it was the cheapest way, besides which I did not wish to meet any family friends-and the man I speak of was a third-class passenger, and he went to Liverpool too." Juliana Horatia Ewing (1841–1885) was an English writer of children's stories. These display sympathetic insight into child life, admiration for things military, and strong religious faith. Juliana Horatia Ewing - sometimes also styled Juliana Horatia Gatty Ewing, or just "Mrs. Ewing" - is credited by Roger Lancelyn Green as being the author of the the "first outstanding child-novels" in English literature. In addition to her children's novels, Ewing also edited a number of magazines for young readers, including the Nursery Magazines (from 1856), the Monthly Packet and the monthly Aunt Judy's Magazine (both from 1866). read more
