From the laufmachine to the Brompton, learn about the evolution of the bicycle from two wheeled toy of the aristocracy through to the boom years of the cycling revolution today. Find out why newspapers are so integral to the story of cycling, why the yellow jersey is yellow and why steak was so important to keep a ride comfortable back in the day. Taking one hundred objects that have been pivotal in the development of cycling and the bikes themselves, this book provides a fascinating insight into the history of cycling. From the earliest prototype bikes through to the speed machines we know today, it also covers key technological developments and the more esoteric - from the Arc de Triomphe and liquorice allsorts via ballbearings and Shimano gears.

This illustrated punctuation workbook supports students with dyslexia, ADHD or other specific learning difficulties to develop their punctuation skills via inquiry-based learning. Using humour and fun cartoons to teach punctuation, the book encourages students to engage in active learning to make their own connections about punctuation rather than rote memorisation of rules. The jokes and unexpected punch lines also help make punctuation more fun and less intimidating. Using this workbook and inquiry-based learning the student gradually becomes proficient in generalising the specific rules they have learnt, detecting patterns from examples and inferring rules. Tricky Punctuation in Cartoons complements school literacy programmes and helps equip students who learn differently with additional ways to remember tricky punctuation rules.

In Hollywood Cartoons, Michael Barrier takes us on a glorious guided tour of American animation in the 1930s, '40s, and '50s, to meet the legendary artists and entrepreneurs who created Bugs Bunny, Betty Boop, Mickey Mouse, Wile E. Coyote, Donald Duck, Tom and Jerry, and many other cartoon favorites. Beginning with black-and-white silent cartoons, Barrier offers an insightful account, taking us inside early New York studios and such Hollywood giants as Disney, Warner Bros., and MGM. Barrier excels at illuminating the creative side of animation--revealing how stories are put together, how animators develop a character, how technical innovations enhance the "realism" of cartoons. Here too are colorful portraits of the giants of the field, from Walt and Roy Disney and their animators, to Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera. Based on hundreds of interviews with veteran animators, Hollywood Cartoons gives us the definitive inside look at this colorful era and at the creative process behind these marvelous cartoons.
