    Along Came a Llama
    My Family and Other Animals meets The Secret Life of Cows: this rediscovered gem tells the charming tale of how a baby llama transformed a Welsh farming family forever.

    Things llamas like:
    Snaffling cherry brandy, Easter eggs, and the Radio Times.
    Fluttering movie star eyelashes at surprised visitors.
    Curling up in 'tea-cosy' position by the fire.
    Orbiting, helicoptering, and oompahing.
    Humming along to classical music.
    Locking victims in the lavatory.

    Things llamas dislike:
    Having toenails trimmed by a visiting circus.
    Being adopted mother to an orphaned lamb.
    Invitations to star on Blue Peter.
    Accidentally swimming.
    Snowdonia's rainfall.
    The dark.

    Ruth Ruck's family live on a Welsh mountain farm, no strangers to cow pats on the carpet and nesting hens in the larder. When dark days strike, they embark on a farming experiment to cheer them all up - but raising a baby llama proves more of an adventure than expected .

  • Antarctica an Absent Presence
    Antarctica an Absent Presence
    This beautiful volume of soundscape compositions, images and words from Philip Samartzis is an invitation to share in a remarkable journey of enquiry. Antarctica is a paradox of the sublime and prosaic: with its vast expanses of ice, snow and mountains - and traces of human habitation, from weathered huts to abandoned machinery. Samartzis travelled south with the Australian Antarctic Division on several occasions and his recordings of the unique sounds of Antarctica have been used to create soundscape compositions which are meticulously realised on three CDs of the music included in this book.

  • Bees and Their Keepers
    Bees and Their Keepers
    A beautifully illustrated and thoroughly engaging cultural history of beekeeping - packed with anecdote, humour and enriching historical detail. The perfect gift.

    Beekeeper and garden historian Lotte Moller explores the activities inside and outside the hive while charting the bees' natural order and habits. With a light touch she uses her encyclopaedic knowledge of the subject to shed light on humanity's understanding of bees and bee lore from antiquity to the present. A humorous debunking of the myths that have held for centuries is matched by a wry exploration of how and when they were replaced by fact.

    In her travels Moller encounters a trigger-happy Californian beekeeper raging against both killer bees and bee politics, warring beekeepers on the Danish island of L so, and Brother Adam of Buckfast Abbey, breeder of the Buckfast queen now popular throughout Europe and beyond, as well a host of others as passionate as she about the complex world of apiculture both past and present.

    Translated from the Swedish by Frank Perry - Sweden's Gardening Book of the Year 2019, shortlisted for the August Prize 2019

  • Bridge Burning and Other Hobbies
    Bridge Burning and Other Hobbies
    Before Kitty Flanagan was making rules, she was burning bridges ...

    Kitty has been locked in a freezer in Western Australia, insulted about the size of her lady parts in Singapore and borne witness to the world's most successful wife swap in suburban Sydney. It's these valuable lessons from The University of Life that have taught her so many things, including the fact that cliches like 'The University of Life' are reeeally annoying.

    In these funny, true stories, Kitty provides advice you didn't even know you needed. Tips on how not to get murdered while hitch-hiking, how to break up with someone the wrong way, and the right way, why it's important to keep your top on while waitressing, and why women between the ages of thirty-seven and forty-two should be banned from internet dating.

    Bridge Burning and Other Hobbies is a collection of laugh-out-loud, cautionary tales from one of Australia's favourite comedians.

    What people are (Kitty Flanagan is) saying about this book:

    'Finally, a book that doesn't tell you to stop eating sugar.'

    'I wrote a letter to my younger self and told her to buy this book.'

    Who knew that the morepork, our only surviving native owl, can turn its head 270 degrees? Or that the bar-tailed godwit triples its body weight before undertaking an epic and continuous migration of 11,000 kilometres? Or that the tui has two voiceboxes, enabling it to duet with itself, and one producing sounds too high-frequency for humans to hear?

    Zany, off-kilter, wondrous and wild, The Brilliance of Birds gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the lives of some of New Zealand's feathered friends.
