About the Author

Roger Priddy left school at 16 with just one qualification—in art. He went to Berkshire College of Art and Design and trained as an illustrator. His first job in children’s books was working with the publisher Peter Usborne, at Usborne Publishing, and then he worked with Peter Kindersley at Dorling Kindersley, where he spent 16 years. Priddy became Creative Director of DK’s Children’s Division and was Managing Director of the children’s mass market publisher Funfax when it was acquired by DK.

In 2000, he created Priddy Books with John Sargent at St Martin’s Press to create innovative and imaginative titles for children, from first books for babies through early reference titles for older children. Since then, over 30 million copies of Roger's 200 plus books have sold worldwide, with five of his books My Big Animal, My Big Truck, Happy Baby Words, Happy Baby Colors and Puppy and Friends each selling over one million copies. He is also the author of Big Board First 100 Words; Big Board Books Colors, ABC, Numbers, and Bright Baby Noisy Monsters. His creativity has been recognized with numerous industry awards. Priddy lives in London with his wife Zena and their four children.


Sapphire

RRP $84.95

By the second half of the twentieth century, a new branch of materials science had come into being - crystalline materials research. Its appearance is linked to the emergence of advanced technologies primarily based on single crystals (bulk crystals and films). At the turn of the last century, the impending onset of the "ceramic era" was forecasted. It was believed that ceramics would play a role comparable to that of the Stone or Bronze Ages in the history of civilization. Naturally, such an assumption was hypothetical, but it showed that ceramic materials had evoked keen interest among researchers. Although sapphire traditionally has been considered a gem, it has developed into a material typical of the "ceramic era." Widening the field of sapphire application necessitated essential improvement of its homogeneity and working characteristics and extension of the range of sapphire products, especially those with stipulated properties including a preset structural defect distribution. In the early 1980s, successful attainment of crystals with predetermined char- teristics was attributed to proper choice of the growth method. At present, in view of the fact that the requirements for crystalline products have become more str- gent, such an approach tends to be insufficient. It is clear that one must take into account the physical-chemical processes that take place during the formation of the real crystal structure, i.e., the growth mechanisms and the nature and causes of crystal imperfections.


Letters Of A Lovestruck Teenager

RRP $16.99

"Gilly Freeborn is possibly the most screamingly funny teenage character ever written." Will Davis, Guardian

At last this much-loved novel is back in print!

Tormented teenagers always make for a good read, but Claire Robertson has created in Gilly Freeborn, the heroine of the laugh-out-loud Letters of a Love Struck Teenager, one of the most hilariously tormented of them all. As Gilly writes to Alexa Deerheart, Agony Aunt of "The Bizz" magazine, her delightfully traumatic life is laid bare. The terror of having no breasts, the first tinglings (literally!) of love, and the trials and tribulations of relationships with family and friends make her life and absolute teenage hell. And as for spots--read it and weep!

Letters of a Love Struck Teenager is pure joy and Gilly Freeborn instantly translates as a female Adrian Mole, trapped in a body that is intent on defying her. Raw and passionate, decidedly naughty in places and crammed full of delightful bitchiness, this is a book to die for and certainly one that the grown-ups will enjoy too as they relive the pain of those hideously confusing teenage years. (Age 11 and up) --Susan Harrison
