Bella, Jacob and Lucas are hands-on in the kitchen as they follow recipes in English and Māori, all the while looking forward to the satisfaction of eating the sweet treats that they have baked for themselves. When Nana bakes it’s a real treat ‘cause there’s so many tasty things to eat. Ina tunu keke a Kui, he rā whakaharikoa nā te nui o ngā mea reka hei kai. Nana knows that having help with the baking can be messy but that it’s the best fun for tamariki of all ages, even toddlers, fostering an interested in food and skills for later in life. Rachel Doragh’s inspired illustrations bring the story to life in an authentic kiwi kitchen while Piripi Walker’s translation keeps the words simple and clear, so the rhythm is right, and each sentence flows when delivered aloud.

"Physick is a book of poetry that sears and coaxes and it could have been written by no one apart from the scholar, poet and elder that is Pete Hay. No one else takes the temperature of this island like him and no one else uses Tasmania as such an effective prism through which to consider human nature. Physick is a book of transcendent poetry which helps us understand not only place but the vagaries and passions of the human condition. It should be prescribed reading for all of us." – Rachel Edwards, The Australian

A gorgeous, large-scale photo book packed with unexpected perspectives of the Atlantic and western European coastal areas, to inspire European visitors and residents as well as armchair tourists and photography buffs around the world As the most visited region in the world, Europe offers a tremendous range of attractions—a diversity that is even reflected on the continent's coastline itself. Europe's nearly 750 million residents and hundreds of thousands of annual visitors can make for crowded cities and congested towns, but the coastal areas offer plenty of spots for people to get in touch with nature—and to experience the majesty of the Atlantic Ocean. Nearly 450 awe-inspiring photos spotlight the Atlantic, which looms off the coast of western Europe as a mercilessly untamed, rugged, and endless expanse. The ocean is characterized by shoals and foaming spray, surging waves, and treacherous currents, yet it is also a unique habitat for whales and seabirds—and an inviting sight for us humans as it gleams in the light of the setting sun. Where rock, wind, and water collide—on coasts from Iceland to the Canary Islands, from northern Norway to Algarve—the range of the sea’s strength becomes evident in the empty beaches and imposing cliff faces, the black lava rocks, and the high surf pent up against stone walls.
