In return Jabir must carve twelve golden horsemen, a gift from the caliph to the emperor Charlemagne. But someone is determined to stop Jabir from completing the work and he will stop at nothing, not even arson, to achieve his aim. Can Jabir and his friend Yasmina finish the horsemen or will Jabir be sent back to prison? This exciting and readable adventure story is packed with great characters and insight into Islamic civilisation and the historic culture of the Middle East circa AD 900, a period which is now studied in the National Curriculum.

In this biography, discover the inspiring life story of Mohandas Gandhi, who successfully used his teachings of non-violence to win his country's freedom.

Mohandas Gandhi was born at a time when his home country was choked under the oppression of British rule. Although many thought that violence was the only way to fight this injustice, Gandhi successfully used his teachings of non-violence and civil disobedience to win his country's freedom - and create a philosophy of peace and equality. Called Mahatma, or "great soul," by his many followers, Gandhi's inspiring words and deeds still resonate worldwide today.
