There will be a book-signing area at the show, but to avoid the crowds, you can pre-order a signed copy now!
Expedition: Adventures into Undiscovered Worlds, by Steve Backshall
There are still dark corners of our planet that are yet to be explored. In this remarkable book, Steve Backshall offers an unflinching account of his adventures into these uncharted territories around the globe, in search of world firsts. Each location brings its own epic challenges – whether it’s the first climb of an arctic ice fall in Greenland, the first recorded navigation of a South American river, or the first exploration of the world’s longest cave system in Mexico. But all of them represent new tests of the limits of human endeavour.
Expedition is a breathtaking journey into the unknown, and a brilliantly written celebration of the pleasures of genuine discovery.
The Sea: Exploring Our Blue Planet, by Miranda Krestovnikoff (and Jill Calder)
Explore an incredible collection of narratives, featuring fascinating facts and stories about the world’s deepest seas and oceans. Written by the critically acclaimed TV and radio presenter Miranda Krestovnikoff and illustrated by the wonderful Jill Calder, this stunning book will have you diving into the deepest depths of the blue, exploring the astounding seas and oceans that cover our planet and discovering the amazing animals that populate our waters, including the largest living animal: the blue whale!
An important message in the book is the effects of plastics on our planet and the ways in which scientists are making steps towards tackling this much-talked-about topic. We can all make steps in reducing our own plastic consumption and The Sea will fascinate and inspire families in their quest to understand why it has never been more important to protect our planet.
Let The Sea take you on a watery journey through different marine habitats that we know about but who knows what is out there yet to be discovered? Featuring an eclectic mix of layout styles with incredible artwork throughout, this is a book that will amaze children and families alike with fantastic facts on the astounding seas and oceans that cover our planet.
