    A six-eyed teenage alien’s future in Hollywood—and on Earth—is at risk when a visitor from his home planet arrives in this humorous adventure. 
     
    After escaping his oppressive red dwarf planet and landing a role on a popular Hollywood sitcom, Buddy Burger seems destined for high-flying success. His legions of fans love his six eyes, his suction cup feet, and even his excessive need for avocados. It seems nothing can stop his rise to super-stardom—until the arrival of Citizen Cruel, a shape-shifting Squadron member sent from Buddy’s home planet to bring him back by any means necessary. Will Buddy conquer this clever and unpredictable enemy? How long can he continue to keep his alien identity secret from his friends and fans? Is there enough guacamole on Earth to sustain him? And chips to go with it?

    “Action, suspense, and big laughs!” —Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series 
     
    “Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver keep us laughing while slipping in a lesson for kids—accept everyone as they are, even if they have suction cups for feet. . . . A super fun read for middle grades on up.” —Jennifer Garner 
     
    “A funny interstellar adventure.” —SLJ Review 
     
    "Winkler and Oliver bring their sharply honed sense of comedy and extensive experience in the television industry to Buddy’s antics on the set. . . . This results in an endearingly strange protagonist that will resonate with any kid who has felt like an outsider. A sense of humor and empathy are required for this zany adventure.” —Booklist

    Nothing, no amount of training, could have prepared a small group of soldiers from the Durham Light Infantry for what they discovered on 18 April 1945, less than a month before the end of WWII in Europe.
    
     
    Of the fifty-five million killed during the war, over ten per cent were murdered civilians. A majority of these were Jewish, although there were a significant number of political deaths, and killings of innocent civilians and minorities. This book is about how the world came to hear about these murders in what later came to be called the Holocaust—the collective extermination of almost six million people.
    
     
    Through the words of those brave soldiers who made the ghastly discoveries, and the thoughts of the survivors of Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp, we are told the story of the infantrymen who uncovered those monstrous crimes seventy years ago, and the traumatic effect it had on their lives.
    
     
    Perfect as a coursebook for GCSE and A-Level students, this book will also appeal to adults who are interested in this critical period of history, and the role played by the DLI.

    "The perfect potty training lesson ... a fun read for readers of all ages." —The US Review of Books 
    ~ From the Author of the International Phenomenon EVERYBODY POOPS! ~ 
    Everybody pees—yes, indeed! It’s time to blow the door right off the bathroom, and shine a light on what happens on the loo. 
    For the little ones just discovering the contents of their diapers and nappies, the bigger ones needing reassurance that the most frequent of their mysterious bodily functions is as natural as can be, and the biggest ones who still hold a fondness for toilet humor, Everybody Pees! is spilling over with bright and brazen illustrations and the truth about who’s doing the peeing: every body is doing it! 
    Sure to incite giggling fits and all-ages laughter, Everybody Pees! exposes one of the least talked about facts we all have in common the world over and among all walks of life, benefiting the youngest of us by opening the discussion, promoting comfort with their bodies, and helping them feel included. Pee pride!
