Sir Peter Blake was an inspirational figure, a symbol of adventure and excitement for people from all walks of life and of all ages. This book, an abridged edition of Sir Peter Blake: An Amazing Life, is for young readers aged ten and up. It cuts to the core of Blake's story, focusing on the sailing, racing and exploring aspects of his life. The text has been cut by three-quarters and the chapters shortened. Blake's early childhood and the politics and personalities have been taken out, leaving the focus on Blake's skills as a sailor and leader. The emphasis is on thrilling narrative. Some element of boat design and equipment will be included. Technical nautical and yachting terms will be explained in the text.

Paris Escapades is a beautiful book of Paris collages by Sir Peter Blake. A follow-up to his infectiously entertaining and highly successful Venice Fantasies, Blake demonstrates his unerring sense of felicitous and unexpected juxtapositions, a gift for visual story-telling and an eye no less acute for having a permanent twinkle. As with the Venice images that preceded them, Blake features many familiar monuments in his Paris pictures but submerges them in extraordinary events that turn them into the stuff of dreams. There is enough air of reality in some pictures, such as the Seine freezing over, to entrap the unwary spectator. But as elephants are hoisted above Notre Dame cathedral and crowds gather for a charabanc outing or for a mass kiss-in that even festival-going hippies would have found a bit extreme, the beauty and allure of Paris becomes populated by the overactive mind of one of the great imaginative artists of our time. Each of the 28 images in Paris Escapades is accompanied by the artist's wry commentaries, and the book is preceded by an interview with Marco Livingstone in which Blake discusses his lifelong involvement with collage. Hugely entertaining as a visual voyage of discovery, Paris Escapades ends up a window into the methods and thought processes of a much loved artist.

The Good Doctor is the inspirational life story of Dr Lance O'Sullivan, the man who stood up to help those most in need when no one else would. Lance O'Sullivan is a man on a mission. Raised in Auckland by a solo mother, he had a modest upbringing typical of the time, if one chequered with difficulties. After being expelled from two schools, Lance could have gone off the rails. Instead, he found his way at Hato Petera College, connecting with his Maori ancestry, and going on to study medicine. After a brief but outstanding career working as a GP in the public health system, Lance and his wife Tracy quit their day jobs to set up a ground-breaking practice in the Far North that offers free healthcare to the many who can't afford it. For his work, Lance has been acknowledged as a Sir Peter Blake Emerging Leader, Public Health Champion, Maori of the Year and, most recently, Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year. Passionate, brave and free-thinking, Lance stood up when no one else would. The Good Doctor charts his inspirational, one-of-a-kind life story, while relaying an overarching hope for a better New Zealand.

and exhilarating story of a great Liverpool institution still brewing great beer .

The story of Cain’s, like the story of Liverpool, is one of passion, ambition, and graft. It takes in immigration, global trade, terrible poverty, and vast wealth. In just two generations, the Cain family went from the slums of Irish Liverpool to a seat in the House of Lords. As the city grew, so did the brewery, and as the city struggled, so Cain’s fought for survival. At the height of Liverpool’s fortunes, Robert Cain owned 200 public houses across Merseyside, including the world famous Philharmonic Dining Rooms -'The Phil' - which he built. City and brewery have shared the highs and lows of recent Liverpool history and the remarkable revival of Cain’s by another immigrant family, the Dusanjs, in the twenty-first century is matched by the city’s own recovery and reinvention. Here, then, is the story of Liverpool in a pint.
