Treasure From The Sea

Treasure From The Sea by Lisa Woollett, Illustrated by Sarah McCartney

Twice a day the tide came in and twice a day it went out. Each high tide left a strandline across the beach. All along it, often hidden amongst seaweed, were clues to secret worlds beneath the waves.

A wonderful story about finding nature’s treasure such as shells, mermaid’s purses and urchins. Two young children set off to the beach swimming, skimming stones and making sand spires. They come across a lady picking up items so they ask what she was collecting. We follow the three as they discover more about the beach they love to visit and the importance of cleaning up plastic as they go. A perfect summer read for all ages.

The Last Days of New Paris by China Miéville

A thriller of a war that never was – of survival in an impossible city – of surreal cataclysm. In The Last Days of New Paris, China Miéville entwines true historical events and people with his daring, uniquely imaginative brand of fiction, reconfiguring history and art into something new.

1941. In the chaos of wartime Marseille, American engineer and occult disciple Jack Parsons stumbles onto a clandestine anti-Nazi group, including Surrealist theorist André Breton. In the strange games of dissident diplomats, exiled revolutionaries, and avant-garde artists, Parsons finds and channels hope. But what he unwittingly unleashes is the power of dreams and nightmares, changing the war and the world for ever.

1950. A lone Surrealist fighter, Thibaut, walks a new, hallucinogenic Paris, where Nazis and the Resistance are trapped in unending conflict, and the streets are stalked by living images and texts – and by the forces of Hell. To escape the city, Thibaut must join forces with Sam, an American photographer intent on recording the ruins, and make common cause with a powerful, enigmatic figure of chance and rebellion: the exquisite corpse.

But Sam is being hunted. And new secrets will emerge that will test all their loyalties – to each other, to Paris old and new, and to reality itself.
