Malcolm doesn't like animals. Which is a problem because his family love them. Their house is full of pets. What the house is not full of is stuff Malcolm likes. Such as the laptop he wanted for his birthday. The only bright spot on the horizon is the Year Six school trip, to... Oh no. A farm. Over the next few days, Malcolm changes. He learns what it's really like to be an animal. A whole series of animals, in fact... It does make him think differently. And speak differently. And eat differently. And, um, smell differently. But will he end up the same as before? [4e de couv.]

THE SECRET PURPOSES, David Baddiel's third novel, takes us into a little-known and still somewhat submerged area of British history: the internment of German Jewish refugees on the Isle of Man during the Second World War. Isaac Fabian, on the run with his young family from Nazism in East Prussia, comes to Britain assuming he has found asylum, but instead finds himself drowning in the morass of ignorance, half-truth, prejudice, and suspicion that makes up government attitudes to German Jews in 1940. One woman, June Murray, a translator from the Ministry of Information, stands out - and when she comes to the island on a personal mission to uncover solid evidence of Nazi atrocities, her meeting with Isaac will have far-reaching consequences for both of them. A haunting and beautifully written tale of love, displacement and survival, THE SECRET PURPOSES profoundly questions the way that truth - both personal and political - emerges from the tangle of history.

Like most people, Vic Mullan - once described by his best friend Joe as 'a man whose sense of social responsibility is exhausted by pulling over to let an ambulance by' - can remember where he was and what he was doing on the day of Princess Diana's death. Yes, he can remember it particularly well: he was at home, beginning an affair with Emma, Joe's wife. The opening sections of David Baddiel's second novel chart the history of an intense and passionately sexual liaison set against the background of the most hysterical time in recent memory. But as the months wear on, and life and love return to normal, so things become more complex between Vic and Emma. And then, tragedy - a real, local, small-scale tragedy, as opposed to a national, iconic, mythological one - intervenes. Part-satire, part-love story, part-whodunnit, and part-meditation on the nature of sex and death, WHATEVER LOVE MEANS confirms Nick Hornby's assertion that David Baddiel has 'gone straight into the First Eleven of young contemporary British novelists'.

Princess Alexandra thought her life would never change, living in the castle with her father King Ludwig, her maid Galstina, and glimpses of her mother as she runs from the stables to the rose bushes. And of course, there's the matter of the grand piano made of glass that she swallowed as a child, sitting inside her at all times. But then Lucien Bonaparte arrives, and suddenly anything seems possible... Laced with dry humour, Alix Sobler's smart play will transport you to the 19th century Bavaria to find four characters trapped by their situations, and prevented from fulfilling their dreams of love.

Which is why Gabriel chooses to waste all his time - because he knows that whatever else he might achieve, it won't be happiness. There's no way there, when you're in love with your brother's wife.

Three hilarious novels of heart, humour and wishes gone wrong, from the new star of childrenâe(tm)s books - by award-winning and bestselling author, David Baddiel. Illustrated by Jim Field - winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. THE PARENT AGENCY: Barry said, a third time, âeoeI wish I had better parents!âe And then suddenly the entire room started to shakeâe¦ Barry Bennett hates being called Barry. In fact itâe(tm)s number 2 on the list of things he blames his parents for, along with 1) âe~being boringâe(tm) and 3) âe~always being tiredâe(tm). But there is a world, not far from this one, where parents donâe(tm)t have children. Thatâe(tm)s far too random for something so big and important. In this world, children are allowed to choose their parents. For Barry Bennett, this world seems like a dream come true. Only things turn out to be not quite that simpleâe¦ THE PERSON CONTROLLER: Fred and Ellie are twins. But not identical (because that's impossible for a boy and a girl). They do like all the same things, though. Especially video games. Which they are very good at. They aren't that good, however, at much else âe" like, for example, football, or dealing with the school bullies. Then, they meet the Mystery Man, who sends them a video game controller, which doesn't look like any other controller they've ever seen. And it doesn't control any of their usual games. When the twins find out what it does control, though, it seems like the answer to all their problems. And the key to all their wildest dreams. At least it seems like thatâe¦ ANIMALCOLM: Malcolm doesnâe(tm)t like animals. Which is a problem because his family love them. Their house is full of pets. What the house is NOT full of is stuff Malcolm likes. Such as the laptop he wanted for his birthday. The only bright spot on the horizon is the Year 6 school trip, until Malcolm realizes itâe(tm)s heading toâe¦oh no. The farm. Over the next days, Malcolm changes. He learns a lot about animals. More, in many ways, than he would like. He learns what itâe(tm)s really like to be an animalâe¦ It does make him think differently. And speak differently. And eat differently. But will he end up the same as he was before? Because sometimes the hardest thing to become isâe¦ yourself.
