Rowlings gloriously inventive The Tales of Beedle the Bard in a fully illustrated colour edition of this essential classic for Harry Potter fans.

Winner Of The 2017 Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize What the judges said: Every man and woman should read this book on gender bias ... an important, yet wickedly witty, book. Fines entertaining and thoughtful book is a valuable addition to the discussion about gender. Ian Critchley, Sunday Times In addition to being hopeful, Fine is also angry. We should all be angry. Testosterone Rex is a debunking rumble that ought to inspire a roar. Guardian A densely packed, spirited book, with an unusual combination of academic rigour and readability ... The expression essential reading for everyone is usually untrue as well as a cliche, but if there were a book deserving of that description this might just be it. Antonia Macaro, Financial Times Testosterone Rex is the powerful myth that squashes hopes of sex equality by telling us that men and women have evolved different natures. Fixed in an ancestral past that rewarded competitive men and caring women, these differences are supposedly re-created in each generation by sex hormones and male and female brains. Testosterone, so were told, is the very essence of masculinity, and biological sex is a fundamental force in our development. Not so, says psychologist Cordelia Fine, who shows, with wit and panache, that sex doesnt create male and female natures. Instead, sex, hormones, culture and evolution work together in ways that make past and present gender dynamics only a serving suggestion for the future - not a recipe. Testosterone Rex brings together evolutionary science, psychology, neuroscience and social history to move beyond old `nature versus nurture debates, and to explain why its time to unmake the tyrannical myth of Testosterone Rex. For fans of Fine - whose Delusions of Gender `could have far-reaching consequences as significant as The Female Eunuch (Viv Groskop, Guardian) - and thousands of new readers, this is an upbeat, timely and important contribution to the debate about gender in society.

In spite of being ejected from Miss Bodycotes Female Academy in Canada, twelve-year-old Flavia de Luce is excited to be sailing home to England. But instead of a joyous homecoming, she is greeted on the docks with unfortunate news: Her father has fallen ill, and a hospital visit will have to wait while he rests. But with Flavias blasted sisters and insufferable cousin underfoot, Buckshaw now seems both too empty-and not empty enough. Only too eager to run an errand for the vicars wife, Flavia hops on her trusty bicycle, Gladys, to deliver a message to a reclusive wood-carver. Finding the front door ajar, Flavia enters and stumbles upon the poor mans body hanging upside down on the back of his bedroom door. The only living creature in the house is a feline that shows little interest in the disturbing scene. Curiosity may not kill this cat, but Flavia is energized at the prospect of a new investigation. Its amazing what the discovery of a corpse can do for ones spirits. But what awaits Flavia will shake her to the very core.
