Brilliant books for brilliant children

The power of the story

Welcome to the new catalogue for The Salariya Book Company imprints: Scribblers, Book House and Scribo. We are proud to present an array of fabulous new titles. Scribblers highlights include the winner of the 2020 Stratford-Salariya Picture Book Prize, set up with the Stratford Literary Festival to publish an exceptional picture book by a debut artist/author: Snow by author-illustrator, Jo Surman, the enchanting tale of two fox cubs who embark on an adventure through a magical forest landscape to find out about the nature of the mysterious substance called snow. We also have new picture books by Northern Lights Book Award-winning authors, Elizabeth Dale and Patrick Corrigan: Billy and the Balloons, Chase Those Witches! and Missing Richmond, all of which are guaranteed to enthral and delight children. Under the same imprint, fans of the BAFTA award-winning Jane Hissey have been anticipating the brand-new story in the much-loved Old Bear series: Little Bear and the Silver Star. And for those who want to revisit the classics, we have two beautifully-illustrated volumes of the retellings of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales: The Snow Queen & Other Stories and Thumbelina & Other Stories. In our Book House imprint, we’re introducing an ingenious new information book series called All The Way Down, with each volume looking at a different natural ecosystem from top to bottom, as well as exploring how factors like deforestation, pollution and climate change are impacting biodiversity. We also have a new nature strand in the globally bestselling You Wouldn’t Want To... series, called How Would You Survive?, looking at the struggles for survival of different animal species, as well as You Wouldn’t Want To Sail on the Mary Rose!, made in partnership with the Mary Rose Trust, which features information about the ship, its crew of African, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern sailors, and the African diver Jacques Francis who helped to salvage items from the wreck. Another fantastic new series, this time with a historical focus, is Live from the Crypt, an undead chat show where ghost guests like Queen Victoria and pharaoh Tutankhamun discuss the events that made them famous. Comic strips, TV script-style text and quirky illustrations help to bring history hilariously to life. In the Scribo imprint, we have the tenth title in acclaimed author Tim Collins’ bestselling The Long-Lost Secret Diary of the World’s Worst… series, about a boy Viking who gets caught up in disastrous raids and voyages to the New World. With more than 500 titles to choose from in Salariya’s hugely entertaining imprints, we have groundbreaking books which will appeal to both avid and reluctant readers. I do hope you will enjoy our books as much as we have enjoyed working on them. This catalogue is viewable online at www.salariya.com

Interview with the Ghost of

How it all began... Ancient China is one of the oldest civilisations in the history of the world.

qIN SHI HUANG

Ying Zheng is born in 259 BC. He is the eldest son of King Zhuangxian of Qin, a ruler of the Qin state.

Coochy, coochy coo.

Hic!

The king dies when Ying Zheng is only 13 years old. Shut up and eat up your rice pudding.

Son, I’m about to go to the next world. You’re in charge now. Cool! Stop telling me what to do.

China is ruled by powerful families called dynasties through much of its history. One of the first dynasties is the Shang (1600 to 1046 BC).

Lords own large areas and often fight over who owns which land.

28

Ying is too young to rule, so he is helped by the Prime Minister, Lü Buwei.
