The biggest, the strongest, the fastest, the loudest―Recordmania sets the bar for the best atlas of the world’s incredible records.

Split into 6 categories and covering everything from sports, architecture, animals, humans, technology, dinosaurs, space, and nature, each category is packed with feats that will delight. Trace out locations across each atlas before delving into the detail behind each record. Recordmania: Atlas of the Incredible is cleverly designed and thoughtfully illustrated, the perfect gift for the curious-minded.

In this wholly original coloring book, children’s artwork can be turned into entertaining videos to play on a tablet or smartphone.

Containing sixteen pages that can be turned into eight twenty-second videos, this book teaches children about Picasso’s life and art through the work they create as well as the brief text introductions to each section. A satisfying blend of art and technology, this unique coloring book will help kids feel the joy of creativity, explore new technology, and let their imagination soar.

A story about a boy who was a little too big for his boots … Goliath always knew he was special. He was big. He was brave. He was the strongest. He was different! Convinced that his home had nothing more to offer, Goliath headed out into the world to show everyone what he was really made of. But he didn’t look so brave when confronted with the sea and he didn’t look so big when stood next to the Sun. So what does being big and brave mean? And why was he determined to be that way … ? Critically acclaimed author and illustrator Ximo Abadía explores concepts of boyhood, growing up, learning, and the complexities we all face in search of our place. Abadía’s vibrant colours and distinctive modern style invites a new reading of a traditional story. Goliath is a tale that is sweet, funny and utterly charming.
