 Luke Thorpe is a fifteen - year - old wimp. Excellent at maths and terrible at sport, he'd rather keep his head down and get on with his schoolwork.

3. Alien Contact and Diplomacy Get it Right or We Suffer - Simon Drake

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 6.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Ever wondered what to do when E.T. phones and asks awkward questions? Ever de-constructed the motives of a visiting UFO that is thousands of light years from home? To understand how Aliens sees us, we first have to understand our own history of exploration, contact and diplomacy, between Old World civilisations and the New World tribes. Earth history is littered with cruel jokes on unwitting peoples, where the collision of East meets West ended with one party screwed over, or just wiped out of existence. Why should Earth's destiny among other races of the universe be any different? Fortunately we have history to advise us on the implications of mixing with advanced alien cultures, yet what if Aliens of questionable intent rocked up into Earth's lower orbit in fancy Star Cruisers and rather than answer the calls from world leaders, communicated only through our social networks? Technology has shifted the means by which alien contact and diplomacy will integrate with our digital world. The responsibility for contact has moved from military elites and those in the know, to the wider, connected public. We have to be prepared to face our past in order to face the future: Soon, now, or a day in the far future, we will make real alien contact and our diplomacy will either have us subjugated and naively enslaved, or equipped with knowledge and technology that enables us to explore the stars. We are responsible for our past and the future - alien contact and diplomacy is in our hands and our descendants' hands, so that one day they'll explore new worlds, and know how to drive a bargain, make a deal and survive, when they get there.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

You think you know the entire story of ''''Bleak Expectations'''' but look! Now it's also a big, fat, juicy book. Like the radio series, but with added jokes, extra bits of story, additional dimensions to characters and masses more paper. Unless you're reading it as an e - book in which case ...masses more digital information bits. ''''Bleak Expectations'''' recounts the remarkable adventures of young Pip Bin as he tries to repair his destroyed family and distinctly damaged life, aided by his best friend Harry Biscuit and definitely not aided by his cruel and ironically named guardian Mr Gently Benevolent and his accomplices, the fearsome Hardthrasher siblings. Weep! As Pip is sent to Britain's nastiest boarding school, St Bastard's. Gasp! As the true extent of his despicable guardian's plan becomes clear. Worry! As our hero is committed to the Workhouse, where he meets the hideous poverty - punishments of the treadmill, the grindstone and the painwheel. Sigh! As Pip finds love with London's most eligible frail beauty, Miss Flora Dies - Early. Find a tenterhook and sit on it! Grim circumstances, mistaken identities, unlikely inheritances, nightmarish court cases, ridiculous names, convenient coincidences to resolve plot problems, over - sentimental death scenes and lots and lots of adjectives: ''''Bleak Expectations'''' is the novel Charles Dickens might have written after drinking far too much gin.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Like Edward Cullen in ''Twilight'', Nigel Mullet was transformed into a vampire when he was still a teenager, and will remain this age forever. Unfortunately, Nigel became a vampire at the awkward age of fifteen, and must spend eternity coping with acne, a breaking voice, and an ineptitude with girls...In this, his excruciatingly funny diary, Nigel chronicles his increasingly desperate attempts to be noticed by the love of his life, Chloe Sparrow, the constant mortification caused by his vampire parents (not to mention the worry that they might accidentally eat one of his friends), and the frustration one feels when you've got the whole of boring eternity stretching out in front of you and you can't even have a lie - in (vampires don't sleep). Forced to hang out with the Goths and emo kids due to his pale skin and social awkwardness, and constantly battling his embarrassingly overwhelming desire to sink his fangs into Chloe's neck, will Nigel ever get his girl? Fantastically witty and hugely entertaining, this fun and accessible diary will appeal to anyone, teenage or otherwise...Winner of the Lincolnshire Young People's Book Award 2012.

Dorkius and Fabricus flee the city and watch from a distance as the volcano erupts. When they get back to the town, they find that everyone survived, although there was minor damage to property. Dorkius warns the townsfolk that their city could face a more deadly eruption, but they refuse to worry about it as long as their animal innards tell them they're safe.By award winning author Tim Collins, and with amusing illustrations from Andrew Pinder.
