Summary

A delightfully Danish guide to whittling for the home, crammed with projects for all ages and abilities. 
Our interest in the simple but satisfying art of whittling has never been higher. Our Danish-inspired book on whittling (snitte in Danish) has a range of wonderful simple whittling projects for the home. The beautiful Scandinavian projects range from simple wooden toys for children, including a bird whistle, ring catcher, animal figures and a wooden sword to practical items like door hooks, butter knives and then to decorative pieces such as a wooden necklace, buttons, delicate carved flowers and a chess set.
All the projects are amazingly simple, and with the visual step-by-step technique section at the front of the book, even a beginner could take on these projects.
The art of whittling has never been more accessible and these beautiful but simple projects capture the spirit of the Scandinavian love of craft and nature.
Author and Danish craftsman Frank Egholm shares not only his considerable knowledge but also his passion for simple wooden carving.

    “An admirable job of covering 60,000 years of human history in one volume. . . . fascinating stories, hilarious oddities, and plenty of fun.” —School Library Journal 
     
    The Mental Floss History of the World is an amazingly entertaining joyride through sixty millennia of human civilization. As audacious as it is edifying, here is a hilarious and irreverent—yet always historically accurate—overview of the ascent (or descent) of humankind, courtesy of the same rebel geniuses who brought you Mental Floss Presents Condensed Knowledge and Mental Floss Presents Forbidden Knowledge. The Mental Floss History of the World is proof positive that just because something’s true doesn’t mean it’s boring.

    Gettin' Poetic on Anaesthetic is a light-hearted memoir guaranteed to make you smile, laugh, or even wet your pants! A memoir is all about the ability to see life through the writer's eyes. Allow yourself to see the world through Simon's and you will read an honest, witty and sometimes whacky portrayal of what it's like to stay in an NHS hospital today. It starts by focusing on life growing up in Essex and the accidents he had as a boy, but then centres around the operation that prompted the title. Full of comedy and nostalgia, Simon gives you some cringe-worthy yet hilarious accounts of his life, mostly at his expense. If you have been, or indeed are about to go in to hospital for an operation, Gettin' Poetic on Anaesthetic could be the perfect medicine.

    First published in 1985 by Moorland Press, The Light Railways of Britain & Ireland has remained unavailable for more than twenty-five years, until now. Re-released by Pen & Sword, this is a thorough and engaging book that covers, in depth, the fascinating story of Britain's last railway development, the Rural light railways, constructed as a result of the Light Railways Act 1896.Rigorously detailed, it charts the overall history of the last great railway boom in Britain  the light railway boom  from 1896, to the beginning of the Great War in 1914. During this period a large number of narrow and standard gauge lines were constructed in both Britain and Ireland, in order to serve and open up areas in both countries that, at the time, lacked adequate transport links. This book tells the story of how these lines were constructed and why, in most cases, they eventually failed, due to post-First World War road competition.Authored by two highly acclaimed writers of transport history, this is a true testament to, and a timely reminder of, Britain's last railway development.

    Humorist Patrick F. McManus has been called "a master at spoofing sportsmen" by Publishers Weekly. His rib-tickling books about hunting, fishing, and camping receive rave reviews from national media. The New York Times Book Review writes, "Everybody should read Patrick McManus." In the chapters of Never Sniff a Gift Fish, McManus will teach you the wisdom that is usually shared only in the close ranks of modern-day hunters and gatherers. To complete your arsenal, McManus also includes The Hunter’s Workout Guide and a special Family Camper’s Dictionary. Exercises like the hindquarter shuffle will make you move like a hunter. And phrases like "Yip-yip-yip-Owoooooo!" will help you sound like one, too. Whether he’s poking fun at fly fishing or taking on some other sportsman’s icon, Patrick F. McManus is sure to have you laughing aloud. Norman Dietz’s wry narration is the perfect vehicle for McManus’ best-selling, tongue-in-cheek works. Also available: How I Got This Way , The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw, and The Good Samaritan Strikes Again .
