500 Beautiful Words You Should Know offers words that flow exquisitely off the tongue.

It'll tell you where they come from, how to use them and whether you're likely to bamboozle anyone who's listening to you.

In December 2018, after fifty years of belly-laughs, energy and outrage, Billy Connolly announced his retirement from live stand-up comedy. It had been an extraordinary career. When he first started out in the late sixties, Billy played the banjo in the folk clubs of Scotland. Between songs, he would improvise a bit, telling anecdotes from the Clyde shipyard where he'd worked. In the process, he made all kinds of discoveries about what audiences found funny, from his own brilliant mimes to the power of speaking irreverently about politics or explicitly about sex. He began to understand the craft of great storytelling. Soon the songs became shorter and the monologues longer, and Billy quickly became recognised as one of the most exciting comedians of his generation. Tall Tales and Wee Stories brings together the very best of Billy's storytelling for the first time. With an introduction and original illustrations by Billy throughout, it is an inspirational, energetic and riotously funny read, and a fitting celebration of our greatest ever comedian. Product Information: • ISBN: 9781529361360 • Author: Billy Connolly • Publisher: Two Roads • Format: Paperback • Pages: 336 • Dimensions: 19.69 x 12.7 x 2.22 cm

As he reluctantly concludes that he is indeed a grown man, Rom wrestles with the greater questions that threaten his being: Could I save my family in a crisis? Do I possess the skills to assemble flatpack furniture? Am I too old for streetwear? Is it alright to parent my kids through the medium of Fortnite? Is celibacy the secret to a passionate marriage?

Anne has gathered Julian, Dick, George and, of course, Timmy, together for a last nostalgic jaunt in the countryside together before grown-up responsibilities take the four cousins off in different directions. It's only natural that they find their way onto Kirrin Island for a look around, as this might be the last time they're here together as a group. They are planning just to spend the night there and come home the next day, perhaps with a little exploring in the dungeon for old time's sake. But that night they hear the country has gone into lockdown... They are not allowed to leave. With their usual resourcefulness, they are determined to make the best of it, and remain cheerful and healthy. As Anne keeps saying: They're lucky, really, to have all this countryside and fresh air at their disposal!

Did you know that blue whales do the biggest poos on the planet – their daily deposits can reach up to several meters in length and are often pink in color thanks to a diet of shrimp.

With so much time spent ‘on the job,’ it’s about time you learnt something about the process you are going through. Poo Knew? will tell you amazing facts and trivia about your deposits, such as the average human produces about 2 pounds of the good stuff every single day, or the longest dump ever recorded was 26 feet, roughly the same height as a two-storey building. After digesting this collection of over 100 fascinating facts, you’ll never look at your poo in the same way ever again.

An awful lot has happened in the last 100 years or so. In fact, when you look at how much went on in the 20th century, it's amazing it didn't take longer than that. And what have we learnt? A few obvious lessons include: megalomaniac men with moustaches in charge of countries tend to turn out to be BAD; anyone who thinks they can explain let alone sort out the Middle East is WRONG; France simply cannot be relied upon; America may or may not be the cause of everything GOOD and BAD in the world (depending on who you ask). Enter Al Murray, alter-ego of everyone's favourite Pub Landlord. Al knows his way around 20th century Britain, and he's good enough to illuminate it for you. From the Big Bang of the 20th Century, to the eve of the new Millennium (when all the computers in the world didn't stop working and the Queen had to do the Hokey Cokey with Tony Blair) and all the forgotten tales in between, this is a brilliantly funny, irreverent and eye-opening whistle-stop tour of Britain since 1914.

From The Book Thief and The Binger to The Scholar and The Sci-Fi Lover – read all about over 20 different types of bookworm. Ever find yourself mainlining coffee at work in an effort to stay awake after a late night with a page-turner you just couldn’t put down? Does the thought of being stuck on a train/plane/bus without a book fill you with more existential angst than a Camus novel? Were you too traumatized to leave your bed for days after finishing The Time Traveler’s Wife? If any of these scenarios sound familiar, then chances are you’re a book lover, but what kind of bibliophile are you? Perhaps you’re The Cryer, who doesn’t enjoy a story until at least a pint of real tears have been shed. Or maybe you’re The Adulterer, who struggles to commit and never has less than four books on the go, or The Abuser, whose “treat ’em mean” attitude leads to turned-down corners, broken spines, and water-damaged pages. With over 20 hilarious bookworm profiles, you’re sure to spot a good few character traits that any member of the literati will recognize.
