              When Tomek learns of the magical upside down River Qjar, he sets out on a fantastical journey to find it. Tomek lives a quiet life running his late parents' village store, which has everything you could ever need, and more. Then one day a girl visits. She asks Tomek if he sells s...omething he's never heard of before: a drop of water from the magical River Qjar, which flows back to front and upside down. When he admits he has none, she slips away. Tomek is desperate to follow the mysterious girl, and so he sets out on an incredible adventure. To find the upside down river, he must journey through strange and wondrous places: the Forest of Oblivion where monstrous bears roam, a meadow of deadly scented flowers, a long-hidden island cursed by a witch, and beyond . . . A million-copy bestseller in France, this beloved fantasy story is at last published in English for the very first time. Translated by Ros Schwartz

              One of the foremost French philosophers of the last century, Simone Weil has been described by and by Andre Gide as 'the patron saint of all outsiders' and by Albert Camus as 'the only great spirit of our time'. In this, her most famous work, she diagnoses the malaise at the hear...t of modern life: uprootedness, from the past and from community. Written towards the end of World War Two for the Free French Army, Weil's text is an indispensable and perpetually intriguing text for readers and students of philosophy everywhere.
