Since 1890, the Lake Vyrnwy Hotel has been welcoming visitors to the shores of the beautiful Lake it calls its home. This book tells its fascinating story. The story of the evolution of this Victorian sporting hotel is matched only by the story of the Lake itself, which was, when constructed, the largest artificial reservoir in Europe, the waters held at bay by the first large masonry dam in the country. Built to provide water for the growing city of Liverpool 68 miles away, its construction also meant the relocation of the old village of Llanwddyn. Given the Lake’s remote location, the building of a hotel on its shores seemed a natural development. Early visitors included Liverpool dignitaries and others drawn to witness at first hand the extraordinary engineering project the new reservoir represented. But, as the engineers left the site and the Lake settled into its new surroundings, the Hotel came to represent a haven for visitors who came to fish or shoot, walkers, naturalists and artists or holidaymakers drawn simply by the peace and tranquillity the Hotel still offers to this day. Lake Vyrnwy captures in vivid detail the unique character and location of the Hotel, its fame as a renowned fishing destination, how the Hotel has moved with the times, and how, today, it remains an integral and important part of the local community, economy and culture.

As Roger Morgan-Grenville prepares for a new season with the White Hunter Cricket Club, he is starting to feel his age, so he embarks on a secret plan of coaching, yoga and psychology to improve his game. Will he emerge as a sporting demi-god, or will his team-mates even notice the difference? This is the humorous and heartwarming story of that cricket season, as the White Hunters go from disaster to triumph. It is a tale of competitiveness, suspense, excellence, hospitality and incompetence, such as the missing fielder found asleep in the woods and the two opening bowlers whose MG Roadster breaks down on the way to the game. From the Castle Ground at Arundel to a field next to a nudist camp in France, players such as the Tree Hugger, the Gun Runner, and their wicket-keeper, the Human Sieve, share the dream that this might be their day. Above all, it is the uplifting story of friendship among a team of not-very-good players who find enough moments of near brilliance to remind them why they love the game of cricket.

Victoria Parker knew her dad’s behaviour toward her was a little unusual, but she convinced herself everything was fine—until she found herself locked out of the house at three a.m., surrounded by flashing police lights. Now, dumped into a crowded, chaotic foster home, Victoria has to tiptoe around her domineering foster mother, get through senior year at a new school, and somehow salvage her college dreams . . . all while keeping her past hidden. But some secrets won’t stay buried—especially when unwanted memories make Victoria freeze up at random moments and nightmares disrupt her sleep. Even worse, she can’t stop worrying about her stepsister Sarah, left behind with her father. All she wants is to move forward, but how do you focus on the future when the past won’t leave you alone?

In this profound and empathetic look at the questions children wonder about, Britta Teckentrup beautifully illustrates life's mysteries. What will my life be like? Will I be happy? Will I ever be able to reach the stars?

A young girl stands on a chair to see what it's like to be tall. A boy stares towards the sky and wonders if birds enjoy flying. Friends argue, lovers embrace, the distant sun warms the earth, and people grow old. Using soft hues, bold outlines, and unusual textures, Teckentrup's illustrations help evoke the feelings surrounding each question. As they flip through the pages children and their parents will find endless opportunities to think about life's big questions and to have conversations that will be remembered for years.
