To Wildlife Aid’s Simon Cowell, animal emergencies are just a typical day’s work. In fact, he and his staff deal with more than 12,000 wildlife incidents each year. From a hedgehog trapped in a freezer, to a little owl colliding with a 17-ton lorry, there are not many rescue situations that he has not had to deal with. Wildlife Aid is Britain’s leading wildlife rehabilitation centre and, as such, has become the subject of the enormously successful television series Wildlife SOS. Having been on our screens for over a decade, it is adored by both adults and children for its educational information, its heart-warming rescue stories and of course for its down-to-earth humour. As Simon himself says, ‘Being bitten by badgers, kicked by deer and "taloned" by owls is all in a day’s work, but it still really hurts!’ The tales about the residents that the centre has helped to nurse back to health will make you laugh and cry in equal measure. With information-packed fact files about each animal to accompany the stories, and bursting with beautiful colour pictures, this book is a must-have for very animal lover.

There are many facets to love. It can be all-embracing, passionate, fulfilling, platonic. And when this love is shattered, it gives rise to anguish, hate, anger, jealously, and melancholy. There are times when such powerful emotions must be expressed, for to keep them bottled up inside can render one senseless and unbalanced. What better way to find release than through the age-old medium of poetry? It is the author's sincere hope that her poetry will bring solace to others who have endured the same tumultuous experiences with love and heartache. Perhaps the sharing of her words will provide healing for both the author and her readers around the world.

Middle School is the worst period in a child's life. He or she has to undergo bullying, and an often painful transition from childhood to young adulthood. It is also a period most neglected at home and in school, for the child grows rebellious as he feels he is misunderstood and unjustly dealt with. Parents feel helpless to interfere. Imagine what then can be the plight of twins? Set in teeming, exotic Mumbai, India, this is the story about Raman and Sunny who are twins. Their childhood period was full of companionship and love and healthy competition. But with their graduation to middle school their travails began. Raman and Sunny felt suffocated on being compared with each other. Each wanted to choose his own path, be it academics or sports. They drifted apart and the bullying began. Where before their togetherness was their strength, their separation resulted in their being isolated and bullied, especially the mild Raman. Resentment between the twins creeps in and the crevice in their relationship widens. The mild Raman allows resentment to feed him and he becomes irritable and destructive. This leads to him being thrust before the school counsellor, Mrs. Bulwa, who decides that the best way to deal with waywardness in children, is to deprive them of their comfort zone. Raman's only solace is his friend Imran. Imran is the son of a Doctor. He is weak in studies but has a literary bent of mind. He shares his passion with Raman. But as things turn out, even here Raman misreads the situation and resorts to a deed which lowers him in the estimation of his father. Enter Sunil Sir. He is a reformer teacher who firmly believes that children should be encouraged to explore the different subjects taught by research and analysis methods to inculcate a love for learning and literature. Though sometimes prejudiced by past events, he does not allow this to cloud his judgement. The book deals with parenting, the agony of middle school, the individuality of each child, the jealousy, resentment and fear of change faced by both children and teachers, each at their level. It deals with violence, resentment, bullying, and defiance in children. It explores new methods to get the child on the right path by introducing him to those less fortunate than himself. It explores a synthesis in learning and new and fun methods of teaching. And it deals with the inherent goodness in children and in man. It's a family story, which shows that love, forgiveness and understanding in family life will help bring stability to a child's life.
