A beautiful little story that encompasses values such as perseverance, assertiveness and positivity through the most unlikely of antagonists, the modest little fly! IBBY UK Fly Flies has a really strong message about staying true to yourself and not being swayed by others. It's a terrific book. -- Get Kids Into Books Fly just wants to have fun flying, but everyone she meets thinks she's doing it all WRONG! Fly is happily practicing her flying in the park, doing some wibbles and some wobbles and some waveys. Blackbird, Seagull, Starling and Hawk take turns giving Fly advice about the best way to fly; fly in a straight line, glide on the wind, fly in a flock, dive onto your food.... Fly tries to take their advice on board, but each time finds that this is not HER way to fly. With a sweet, witty twist at the end, this is a delightful book about staying true to yourself in the face of people who insist they know better.
The rise and rise of knitting as a cool pastime has led to circles and clubs springing up everywhere from New York to Notting Hill and alternative craft-fairs are fast becoming a weekend institution as ever more people are reclaiming these age old hobbies and asserting their individuality through making stuff. "Making Stuff" is an eclectic craft book for the new millennium. It is a testament to a trend that is only going to get bigger. Whether you are a seasoned crafter looking for new ideas or a novice with a penchant for gaffer tape, this book is for you. Utilising both traditional craft materials and thrifty finds, this book gathers together over 50 projects from established members of the craft scene that will undoubtedly inspire you to get your craft on. "Making Stuff" simultaneously rejects and embraces traditionally old-fashioned activities like knitting, embroidery, crochet and felting. Whilst the skills remain the same, the results have a modern edge: an eclectic mix of the useful, the hip, the beautiful and the downright weird. A section at the beginning lays out the basic skills you need to make something out of nothing: knitting, sewing, crochet, felting and applique. Over 50 ideas are then laid out with clear illustrations guiding you every step of the way. Projects include: how to knit an i-Pod cover; fashion a purse from your old school-ties; stitch one piece of fabric into a stylish smock-dress; turn an old jumper into a cuddly toy; make a notebook out of record covers; fold beautiful origami fairy-lights; and, knit unwanted t-shirts into a bathmat or weave a placemat. There are also a plethora of ingenious ways to customise your clothes, make your own jewellery, decorate your home, recycle your old possessions and fashion baby clothes and toys for the children in your life.
Although not as extensive as 1997's best-of compilation (that set has 17 tracks as opposed to this set's 12), 2008's THE BEST OF ZIGGY MARLEY AND THE MELODY MAKERS is still a fine round-up of the outfit's sunny reggae-pop. Along with the group's highest charting single, "Tomorrow People," from 1988's CONSCIOUS PARTY, THE BEST OF includes "Met Her On a Rainy Day," "Freedom Road," and "Tumblin' Down." Although Ziggy Marley's music isn't as roots-conscious as his father's, the messages of political consciousness, freedom, unity, and positive energy shine through on each of these tracks.

No one has written poetry about the Egyptian city of Alexandria since Constantine Cavafy, way back in the first three decades of the C20th. Alex, as locals fondly call their coastal paradise, is anything but Cairo's poor cousin - it is decadent, friendly, cosmopolitan and, though its ancient past is basically under the Mediterranean, oozes history. I lived and worked in the city for four years - not as an ex-pat hidden away from the real Egypt, but as a local who travelled on the tram, shopped in the street market at Cleopatra and argued with plumbers (in my basic, quaint Arabic) over their inflated call-out charges The poems, in the volume, are universal - they talk about people, feelings, celebrations, hopes and fears. You, the reader, need not have any knowledge of Egypt or Arabic culture to appreciate them. I hope you enjoy my words.
