            A handsome, landmark book celebrating the work of three of our literary and artistic heavyweights. The complementary work of artist Grahame Sydney, fiction writer Owen Marshall and poet Brian Turner was first brought together in the hugely successful Timeless Land in 1995. Its pa...ges showed their shared, deep connection to Central Otago, to its vast skies, its wide plains punctuated by jagged ranges, its unique colours and its dwarfing effect on the people who pass through it. Twenty-five years later, this lavish new volume from these three long-time friends showcases a rich selection of their subsequent work, including recently written, previously unpublished pieces. Through their own marks about the land and its people, be it in ink or paint, they offer a love song to the South Island, in particular Central Otago.

            Pre-order the bravely honest and uplifting memoir from one of Britain's most cherished TV presenters, Phillip Schofield ____ For a long time, I felt that I couldn't write this book. At first, I didn't think I'd lived enough, then life got busy and filled with distractions. In mor...e recent years, there was always a very painful consideration - I knew where it would eventually have to go. I have recently decided that the truth is the only thing that can set me free. The truth has taken a long time to make itself clear to me, but now is the right time to share it, all of it. Television and broadcasting has been a part of my DNA for as long as I can remember. As a young boy I would make model TV sets out of cardboard boxes, while spending long summers at home, barefoot on Cornwall's golden beaches. Landing a job at the ice-cream kiosk, I would enviously look on as my presenting heroes took to the stage of Radio 1's Roadshow, an unforgettable event when it came to town. In Life's What You Make It I look back with nostalgic delight on my life, from being a young boy endlessly writing letters to the BBC in pursuit of a job in broadcasting, to making it on to the Broom Cupboard, with my infamous sidekick Gordon the Gopher, to being on Going Live and starring as the lead in Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. It has taken four decades to get here but I feel lucky to have called the sets of Talking Telephone Numbers, The Cube, Dancing on Ice and of course, This Morning, home. I'm going to take you behind the scenes of my television home at ITV, into my career and my dangerously funny relationship with Holly Willoughby. I'm going to introduce you to my loving and remarkable family, and I hope most of all to tell you that life, it seems, is what you make it. Take it from someone who has sat on the very edge and looked over, it's all about the people that love you, and after that anything is possible. So, finally, here we go, this is the real

            For boys and girls who love Minecraft, a graphic novel adventure told through 750 images to transport young readers into the world of the game they love most. With the skeleton armies gone, trading is a breeze and life returns to somewhat normal for the kids who decided to stay a...t the outpost. Logan, Maddy, Brooklyn, Cloud, and Zoe should be enjoying the peace and quiet at Battle Station Prime, but there's one thing that keeps them up at night: The threat of the Dragonmaster's revenge. The Ender Dragon egg had been a carefully guarded secret until it hatched and the young, powerful, dragon inside imprinted on an evil sorcerer named Borin. They know that it's only a matter of time before this dangerous partnership threatens their existence. Even The Prime Knight knows that he can't stop the mighty forces that are about to be unleashed. He recruits the kids of Battle Station Prime to form a Dragon Alliance and help him save the world from the kind of destruction that could change the realm forever. The fierce, young warriors set out on a perilous journey to The End to fight for everything they love. As they follow The Prime Knight into the greatest quest of their lives, the ties that once bound them together in battle will be pushed to the limit and they'll be forced to make choices they never expected to make.
