Puss Milo sometimes falls asleep. He dozes off anywhere, in his basket at home, or in the sun. And every time strange things happen... For example on the day that Milo wakes up on a cloud so high that he sees the city beneath him. Or another day, when suddenly his warm basket is a boat and he finds himself bobbing on a great ocean. This delightfully illustrated book takes a child on a journey full of adventures, but it always ends well with Milo being at home.

Vincent van Gogh lived in an exciting era of history. So many things were changing, with new inventions coming along all the time. Thanks to the railway network, with its rapid expansion across Europe, it was possible for the post to be delivered quickly. In the year Vincent was born, you couldn’t even go on the train from the Netherlands to Brussels. But by the time he had grown up, it was easy to travel all the way to the south of France. Vincent did quite a lot of travelling, covering thousands of kilometres throughout four different countries. No matter where he was, he nearly always wrote to his brother Theo. And Theo kept everything Vincent sent him: letters, drawings and paintings. So it’s thanks to Theo, the postal system and to the railways that we now know so much about Vincent. With this book you can now follow Vincent van Gogh around Europe, to all the places where he lived and worked!

Shiro lives with his mother in a village overshadowed by the castle of Lord Amago and under threat from the neighbouring Enya clan. He dreams of becoming a samurai warrior. When he hears that the Emperor has sent guardians for their temple he is overjoyed, and climbs the mountain to the temple with the rest of the village to meet them. To his disappointment, they turn out to be statues, not the real men he had imagined. Shocked by the guardians’ appearance, the villagers stay away from the temple. Only Shiro dares to return, and to learn more about these wooden men. When the Enya clan attack, who could have guessed that these Guardians hold not only Shiro’s future but also the safety of the whole province in their hands? One of the highlights of the new Rijksmuseum is the pair of 14thcentury Japanese Temple Guardian figures. These largerthan-life wooden sculptures were made for the Iwayaji Templein the west of Japan.

She created a world of healthy leftovers, because the most important thing, even when you are poor, is to stay healthy.
