A Workbook enabling children to practise the language points presented in the Reader. These workbooks accompany the popular Collins Big Cat series. They enable children to practise and reinforce the target vocabulary and language structures presented in each corresponding Collins Big Cat reader through enjoyable puzzles, games and activities, as well as through more traditional comprehension exercises. Tracing, copying and eventually free-writing tasks build and develop children's writing skills as they progress through the Bands, Pink A to Lime. A fun quiz to test understanding, and a reward certificate at the back of each Workbook, enable children to feel a sense of progress as they learn to read more confidently in English.

In Post Everything, Luke Haines demonstrates that the only way to survive the tyrannical scourge of Britpop is to become an Outsider. The 'avant-garde Arthur Scargill' calls upon the nation's pop stars to down tools and go on strike. We learn the story of Haines' post-Britpop art house trio Black Box Recorder (Chas and Dave with a chanteuse), we meet a talking cat, two dead rappers (Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur), and a mystical England football manager. Haines even finds time to write a musical for the National Theatre. Blisteringly funny and searingly scathing, Post Everything may quite possibly be the first and only truly surreal comic rock memoir. It even contains a killer recipe for scrambled eggs.

Read the two books that started the USA today bestselling series by Renee Rose & Lee Savino! Temptation: MINE TO PROTECT. MINE TO PUNISH. MINE. I'm a lone wolf, and I like it that way. Banished from my birth pack after a bloodbath, I never wanted a mate. Then I meet Kylie. My temptation. We're trapped in an elevator together, and her panic almost makes her pass out in my arms. She's strong, but broken. And she's hiding something. My wolf wants to claim her. But she's human, and her delicate flesh won't survive a wolf's mark. I'm too dangerous. I should stay away. But when I discover she's the hacker who nearly took down my company, I demand she submit to my punishment. And she will. Kylie belongs to me. Danger: "YOU BROKE THE RULES, LITTLE HUMAN. I OWN YOU NOW." I am a head wolf, one of the youngest in the States. I can pick any she-wolf in the pack for a mate. So why am I sniffing around the sexy human attorney next door? The minute I catch Amber's sweet scent, my wolf wants to claim her. Hanging around is a bad idea, but I don't play by the rules. Amber acts all prim and proper, but she has a secret, too. She may not want her psychic abilities, but they're a gift. I should let her go, but the way she fights me only makes me want her more. When she learns what I am, there's no escape for her. She's in my world, whether she likes it or not. I need her to use her gifts to help recover my missing sister—and I won't take no for an answer. She's mine now. Author's note: This duet is a compilation of two previously published titles. If you've already read Jackson & Kylie and Amber & Garrett's story, you don't need to one-click.

“IT’S ONLY MAKE BELIEVE IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE”™ Journeys of the Immortal begins in Ash, which follow the travels of Sam, a twelve-year-old girl, who is having to grow up faster than she should as she comes face-to-face with legendary creatures once thought to be only myths. Sam quickly learns that magic is not just for other realms but is a reality on Earth as well. Their first trip since her mother died 18 months earlier, Sam is reclusive and uninterested in her dad's work. Jack, a Bigfoot expert, drags his disbelieving daughter on a field expedition to the Arizona forest, accompanied by his best friend Charlie, an alien hunter, and his three sons: Chris, Tommy, and Eli. Sam soon discovers a cave containing a nest of unknown origin, and upon showing her dad, it’s thought to be evidence of Bigfoot. Charlie dismisses the discovery and spirals out of control, insisting the evidence points is extraterrestrial. In his greed, he sabotages Jack's work, but not before Sam discovers that neither Bigfoot or aliens are responsible for the nest. What lies inside makes Sam a believer in all things magic. Charlie, upon learning the truth about the cave and nest, does everything in his power to capture the elusive creature named Ash, but is met with resistance by the rest of the group. Sam stops at nothing to ensure Ash’s safety and help him return home from the mortal realm while learning to control her newfound powers, and her blossoming feelings for Tommy.

The stories in Birds and Words all center around different birds, complete with a photo of the subject. Most stories are fiction although I admit the Thanksgiving Rooster is close to the truth.
