Chris Hadfield,: You Are Here : Around the World in 92 Minutes

You Are Here : Around the World in 92 Minutes


Description

In You Are Here, celebrated astronaut Chris Hadfield gives us the really big picture: this is our home, as seen from space. The millions of us who followed Hadfield's news-making Twitter feed from the International Space Station thought we knew what we were looking at when we first saw his photos. But we may have caught the beauty and missed the full meaning. Now, through photographs - many of which have never been shared - Hadfield unveils a fresh and insightful look at our planet. He sees astonishing detail and importance in these images, not just because he's spent months in space but because his in-depth knowledge of geology, geography and meteorology allows him to reveal the photos' mysteries. Featuring Hadfield's favourite images, You Are Here is divided by continent and represents one (idealized) orbit of the ISS. Surprising, thought-provoking and visually delightful, it opens a singular window on our planet, using remarkable photographs to illuminate the history and consequences of human settlement, the magnificence of never-before-noticed landscapes, and the power of the natural forces shaping our world and the future of our species.

In the whole delightful world of Wodehouse, the English clergy offers some of the richest sources of good-natured good humour. Confronted by burglars or belted earls, they plough serenely on with the Advent sermon or the opening of the village fete - until that is, they are swept uncontrollably into fiendish plots which only a well-disposed devil or member of the Drones Club could have contrived. No bishop is more endearingly plump and pompous than a P.G. Wodehouse bishop, no vicar more a pillar of his community (provided his sermons aren't too long), and in this collection of short stories we watch as they are plunged into one hilarious scenario after another. Bobby has a problem at school. It's his teacher, Miss Kirby. She stomps, she roars, and she won't even let him throw paper aeroplanes in class...what a monster! One day the unthinkable happens when Bobby bumps into Miss Kirby outside school. However, he soon finds out there's more to her than meets the You Are Here : Around the World in 92 Minutes download epub eye. This beautifully illustrated and brilliantly funny book from award-winning artist Peter Brown shows that monsters, and teachers, are not always as bad as they seem. Praise for Mr Tiger Goes Wild: "Utterly charming" - Metro "Funky, funny and beautiful...an irresistible addition to every wild child's bookshelf" - Times "Stylish and clever" - Bookseller "an inspired book that is exquisitely illustrated and can easily lead to a discussion about being yourself and acceptance." - Guardian "picture book of the year" - New Statesman "Children and adults alike will be entertained as they read this appealing and heartwarming book" - Scotsman
