              Get the inside track on the incredible lives of history's biggest names: from Shakespeare to Oprah Winfrey, and Anne Frank to Julius Caesar. Following on from the smash hit Timelines of Everything, Timelines of Everyone stands out from other history books by focusing squarely on ...the biographies of a myriad of movers and shakers across millennia. This DK children's book boasts more than 130 visual timelines, covering kings and queens, humanitarians, scientists, inventors, explorers, activists, writers, artists, and more. Timelines of Everyone breathes fresh life into the biographies of the people you thought you knew, yet also finds new stories from previously overlooked or ignored voices. Did you know US President Franklin D. Roosevelt was defeated only once in 300 wrestling matches? Or that more women passed NASA's rigorous astronaut training tests for Project Mercury, but were forbidden to fly into space? Or how about the fact that Einstein's last words were lost, because his nurse didn't speak German? This fascinating title takes kids on a historical journey, revealing not just the incredible achievements, contributions, and adventures of historical luminaries, but the lesser-known events that shaped them too, from childhood into old age. Filled with easy-to-understand visual timelines, vibrant illustrations, and a diverse range of historical figures, Timelines of Everyone is the must-have guide to the world's must-know names.

              When Miles came out on his YouTube channel in 2015 - then transitioned online in 2017 - his aim was to help other teens navigate their identities and take charge of their own coming-out stories. From that experience comes Out!, the ultimate coming-out survival guide for anyone qu...estioning or queer. Out! covers questions big and small: How to stay safe when coming out in a toxic environment, what to do if you don't feel comfortable with your birth name, what style haircut best suits your identity and how to find your chosen family. Miles offers readers coming-out conversation starters ('Can I have the bathroom pass? Also, the correct pronouns?'), a recipe for a very gay cake and a guide to mastering the masculine haircut. You'll find resources for finding a gender therapist, pointers for being a queer ally and Miles's Ten Commandments (#5: You are valid in your identity, even if you're the only one who can define it). If you're a person seeking answers, look no further! This book is for you. And remember: Whoever you are, you are worth fighting for.
