‘Reading age’ in this catalogue refers to the reading level of the text. ‘Interest age’ refers to the appeal of the content of the books and gives consideration to both unenthusiastic and able readers. We see books as an invaluable learning and development aid, especially in the first few years of life, so our books are not only entertaining and stimulating, but also highly engaging and interactive. Our books meet European Safety Standards (CE mark) and all our board books are sturdy and have rounded edges. The virgin paper fibre used in the production of our books, catalogues and office supplies is sourced from sustainable forests. Sustainable forests are ecologically managed to ensure a healthy balance between the demands for paper today and the forests’ natural ecosystem, and to ensure that the needs of our readers and their children and grandchildren can continue to be met in the future.

Other imprint highlights include the winner of the Stratford-Salariya Children’s Picture Book Prize, Luna and the Moon Rabbit, an enchanting and beautifully-illustrated story inspired by Asian folklore, as well as Make and Play Dinosaurs and Farm Animals, vibrant board books containing charming press-out models. Our Book House imprint has lots of entertaining titles providing an engaging introduction to STEAM subjects. We’re publishing six new volumes in the bestselling You Wouldn’t Want To Live Without series, looking at the impact of such inventions as robotics and libraries, along with eight engineering-themed additions to the Science Of information book series. We’re also launching a new narrative history series called So You Think You’ve Got Troubles? whose two initial titles, Kid in Ancient Rome and Kid in Ancient Egypt, offer history from a child-centred perspective on these civilisations. Also in Book House, we’re adding fascinating new titles for readers of all ages on Winston Churchill, the Thames and Scottish women to the bestselling Very Peculiar History series, and many arts and crafts guides for beginners, including Figure Drawing, Landscape Drawing and The Art of Drawing Manga: Girls & Boys. For Scribo we’re publishing The Curse of the Speckled Monster, a two-volume Dickensian mystery-adventure about an orphan boy drawn into a murky world of bodysnatching in 19th century England, and adding another title to the acclaimed Long-Lost Secret Diary of the World’s Worst... series: Gladiator. With more than 500 titles to choose from, Salariya’s exciting and innovative books will appeal to both avid and reluctant readers. I do hope you will enjoy our books.

Faster than a sneeze, Hare was leaping and bounding and WH OO PIN G into the distance. Tortoise, still a tiny bit distracted by his breakfast plans, inched s-l-o-w-l-y forwards over the start line. “At least I can enjoy the race in peace now,” he thought, as he watched the white fluffy tail disappear in a blur.

The Birds and Bees were busy making bets on the winner. It was very clear to all of them that Hare would be the champion, and by more than a whisker too. “Come on, Tortoise!” called Snail, who was determined that his s-l-o-w, shelled friend had a chance.

Wrasses & large fish

Hmm, cuttlefish fo r l u n c h a g a i n , I see...

Cleaning station

Pavla Hanáčková / Linh Dao

Even though fish live in water, they still need a wash and brush up! They don’t need any soap though – just a bunch of cleaners! All they have to do is swim by a cleaning station, get in line, and wait their turn. Little fish soon take charge of them, cleaning parasites from the surface of their body, gills, and oral cavity. About 45 species of fish and many shrimps provide this cleaning service.

We l c o m e ! Th i s i s m y n e w cleaning station.

If there’s any place that the fish’s tiny mouths can’t reach, shrimps come to the rescue. Their long legs and claws provide an excellent tool. Shrimps use them to cut away pieces of protruding skin, or to pick leftover food from teeth.

Wrasses run their cleaning stations in coral reefs around the world’s seas and oceans. There’s no shortage of clients as wrasses are indispensable in this regard. They remove not only parasites and bacteria from their customers’ skin, but also damaged or dead skin cells.

Competition is stiff, so the cleaners have to know how to best attract customers. Wrasses rely on their striking colouration to instantly catch the attention of potential clients. They also move their body so that the sunlight will reflect on it. Shrimps, meanwhile, wave their claws and sometimes even add showy dance moves!

Shrimps – cleaning specialists

So, why is this process mutually beneficial? Well, the fish end up amazingly clean, while the cleaners have a welcome feast. Even sharks, rays, cephalopods, and turtles enjoy this good service.

There are long queues, but all the customers wait in an orderly fashion – except for one predator. The Barracuda is attended to as a matter of priority and never has to wait. There are no objections as none of the queue wants to end up as a convenient snack!

The swiftly paced, suspenseful plot will keep young readers on the edge of their seats while giving them an insight into many of the historical events and personalities of Shakespeare’s England.
