The Cockroach

By Ian McEwan

Paperback: pr5499042

Pub Date: Oct 2019

Kafka meets the world of Brexit in a bitingly funny political satire from Ian McEwan.

That morning, Jim Sams, clever but by no means profound, woke from uneasy dreams to find himself transformed into a gigantic creature.

Jim Sams has undergone a metamorphosis. In his previous six-legged existence he was ignored or loathed, but in his new incarnation he has woken up to discover he is the most powerful man in Britain: the Prime Minister. His mission: a nationalist revival, with or without Europe. Nothing must get in his way: not the opposition, nor the dissenters within his own party. Not even the rules of parliamentary democracy.

In this bitingly funny, Kafkaesque satire, Ian McEwan engages with scabrous humour a very recognizable political world and turns it on its head.

Greta and the Giants

By Zoë Tucker / Illus. by Zoe Persico

Paperback: pr5241340

Pub Date: Nov 2019

This inspiring picture book retells the story of Nobel Peace Prize nominee Greta Thunberg—the Swedish teenager who has led a global movement to raise awareness about the world’s climate crisis—using fantasy to make this important topic accessible to young children.
Greta is a little girl who lives in a beautiful forest threatened by Giants. When the Giants first came to the forest, they chopped down trees to make houses. Then they chopped down more trees and made even bigger homes. The houses grew into towns and the towns grew into cities, until now there is hardly any forest left. Greta knows she has to help the animals who live in the forest, but how? Luckily, Greta has an idea…
A section at the back explains that, in reality, the fight against the “giants” isn’t over and explains how you can help Greta in her fight.

This thrilling book traces the remarkable rise of Justin Trudeau to become a desired and admired world leader in the grim age of Trump & Twitter. How did he do it? The secret is in his backstory. Alan Hustak has been granted unprecedented access from friends and relatives of both Pierre and the young Justin Trudeau.

Exposing Trudeau's childhood spent with a cerebral father, his experiences acting and teaching in Vancouver, and his eventual acceptance that his destiny lay in politics, Hustak weighs up the man against the objectified myth, and analyses the evidence for Trudeau's sincerity, honesty and dedication to change. Is Trudeau truly the herald of a better kind of politics - or is this progressive agenda just a people pleasing mask?
