Victorian Voyages and Modern Flights

By Julia Golding

Part of The Curious Science Quest series

Julia Golding's Curious Science Quest series explores world-changing ideas in language children understand and enjoy.

Join Harriet, Darwin's pet tortoise, and Milton, Schrodinger's indecisive cat on a time-travelling quest of discovery, unravelling scientific exploration and religious beliefs and how they fit together. Throughout the centuries humans have been looking for answers to BIG questions - how did the universe start? Is there a God behind it? Has science explained away the need for a God, or can faith enhance scientific discovery? Step into Harriet and Milton's time machine, bring some snacks, and enjoy this curious quest of discovery.

Julia Golding is winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2006, and the Nestle Smarties Book Prize 2006.

The Not-So-Very Lost Lamb and Noah and the Great Big Boat

By Antonia Woodward

Antonia Woodward brings her gorgeous illustrations to two new bible stories, rewritten for young readers.

Follow the little lamb as it wanders off unaware of how far from home it goes. Share the joy as the little lamb hears the sound of the Shepherd's voice, who has come to find it. And imagine Noah's excitement when his big boat comes to rest and once more the animals can roam the earth.
