My Name Is X and I Am a Cumberbitch

«Tongue-in-cheek and totally unhelpful, this little book is the perfect stocking filler for Benedict Cumberbatch fans this Christmas». Benedict Cumberbatch. Does the mere sight of his name give you tingles? Do you feel a cheap thrill staring at the dip on his cupid’s bow lip as he talks? Do you secretly wish you could plumb the rhythmic depths of his voice or twiddle your finger in his perfectly coiffed hair? If the answer to these questions is yes, then I’m afraid there’s a very great chance that you could be a Cumberbitch. But that’s actually perfect, because this little book was written especially for you! In this incessantly enlightening guide you’ll find: A whole load of (Benedict-related) quizzes. Motivational illustrations (of Benedict’s face). Inspirational quotes (from Benedict). And, most importantly, the Five-Point Plan to Dis-Batch your Ben-Addiction. Simple and semi-effective, this is the only guide that promises to combat Cumber-crastination in no time. Hurrah!

The River and the Book

From the internationally bestselling author of the high fantasy series The Books of Pellinor comes a powerful story about the exploitation of indigenous people by the First World. Endorsed by Amnesty International as contributing to a better understanding of human rights, this poetic coming-of-age story combines magical realism and fable, and features beautiful black-and-white chapter illustrations. Simbala’s village has two treasures: the River, their road and their god; and the Book, their history, their oracle and their soul. Simbala is a Keeper of the Book, the latest in a long line of women who can use it to find answers to the villagers’ questions. As developers begin to poison the River on which the villagers rely, the Book predicts change. But this does not come in the form that they expect; it is the sympathetic foreigner who comes to the village who inflicts the greatest damage of all.
