When River, Freak, and Fiona discover a rare zucchini-colored crayon between the cushions of a mysterious sofa at their bus stop, they quickly find themselves in the middle of an evil plot to conquer the world! The plot´s mastermind, Edward Disin, is responsible for starting the underground coal seam fire that continually burns just beyond the kids´ backyards, a dastardly cover-up for an intergalactic portal that will soon transport an army of invaders to Earth. Disin´s only weakness is his otherworldly obsession with the zucchini crayon - and he knows the kids have it. But with the help of an eccentric neighbor, an artificial intelligence in the form of a double-six domino, a DNA-analyzing tray, two hot air balloons, and a cat named Mucus, three kids from the middle of nowhere might be able to save the planet. Henry Clark´s dazzling debut middle grade novel is a thoroughly original, unabashedly wacky, and surprisingly affecting story about the importance of intelligence and curiosity in a complacent world. 1.

Claudia Haessy schreibt irrsinnig komisch und herrlich derb über die angeblich schönste Zeit im Leben einer Frau. Für die meisten versprechen die zwei Streifen auf dem Schwangerschaftstest das ersehnte Glück, für Claudia dagegen eher eine mittelgroße Katastrophe. Denn Kinder mag sie eigentlich nicht sonderlich. Und der Umstand, dass sie den Vater in spe erst zwei Monate zuvor im Internet kennengelernt hat, sorgt für zusätzliche Turbulenzen. Mutig wirft Claudia ihre Lebensplanung über den Haufen und tauscht Netflix und Sofa gegen Umstandsmode, Schwangerschaftsyoga und Stillhütchen. Ein wunderbarer Roman über die Liebe in Zeiten der Schwangerschaft. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Ulrike Kapfer. Hörprobe: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adko/003700/bk_adko_003700_sample.mp3.

The amazing story of TV presenter Louise Minchin´s journey from the BBC Breakfast sofa to representing Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships. This is a warmly written and wonderfully honest adventure through sport that will both entertain and inspire. It started out as a fun BBC Breakfast cycling stunt in 2012 and culminated in Louise Minchin wearing the colours of Team GB at the World Triathlon Championship in 2015. This is the story of how a newly discovered sport became a passion and then an obsession. Dare to Tri: An Adventure in Triathlon charts Louise Minchin´s incredible journey as she rediscovers competitive sport after 30 years and takes her first tentative steps as a triathlete. As her performances improve, there´s a realisation that representing TeamGB in her age group is a possibility, and the book tells of her plucky attempt to achieve this almost-unthinkable goal. It is an adventure not without its challenges as Louise has to overcome personal nerves, a brutal training regime, the odd bike crash and the occasional drama such as swimming with jellyfish and getting stuck in a loo before a race. Along the way Louise rediscovers the forgotten joys of sport and receives surprising rewards in the form of being an unexpected inspiration to others. There is also the added bonus of newfound respect from her teenage daughters and the realisation of the important role mothers play in inspiring girls to continue to enjoy sport. 1.

Over the course of the last 10 years, Frank Skinner has toured sell-out stand-up shows, hosted countless TV shows and an award-winning radio programme, written two well-received volumes of memoir, as well as recording a couple of pop songs and learning to play the ukulele. He has been a busy man. Yet, for the last two years, he has also managed to squeeze in a weekly column for The Times. Without fail, he sat down every week and wracked his brain to think of something to write 900 words about. Dispatches from the Sofa is the brilliant result. Alighting on such random topics as the potential demise of Margaret Thatcher, the love-hate relationship with your football club, Mike Read’s musical of Oscar Wilde, fat pop stars, Serbian breakfast banter, the pleasures of air-guitar, the banking crisis and the evil phenomenon of Jedward, this is a thought-provoking, wide-reaching, hilarious and self-deprecating collection - which also includes the first two chapters from his unpublished novel - from one of our funniest, quickest and most beloved comedians. 1.

This is a debut novel from actress and audiobook reader Julia Franklin. ‘I’ve read somewhere between 300 and 400 novels as audiobooks over the last 25 years,’ she says, ‘so I thought it was time to have a go at a novel of my own.’ The result is Turn Up for the Book, a romantic comedy that begins with the breakup, one Christmas, of a marriage. Poor Viv has begun to look like the sofa she sits on most of the time. No wonder her unfaithful husband, Clive, is leaving her for a glamorous supermodel. But over the next 12 months, she will find that books and friendship will move her to a different kind of sofa altogether. Set against a background of publishing, food, and drink, oh yes, and maybe murder, Turn Up for the Book is a lovely lighthearted companion to warm you on dark winter evenings. 1. Language: English.
