The creators of the New York Times bestselling picture books Rosie Revere, Engineer and Iggy Peck, Architect are back with a story about the power of curiosity in the hands of a child who is on a mission to use science to understand her world. Ada Twist, Scientist, from powerhouse team Andrea Beaty and David Roberts, is a celebration of STEM, perseverance, and passion.

 
Like her classmates, builder Iggy and inventor Rosie, scientist Ada, a character of color, has a boundless imagination and has always been hopelessly curious. Why are there pointy things stuck to a rose? Why are there hairs growing inside your nose? When her house fills with a horrific, toe-curling smell, Ada knows it’s up to her to find the source. What would you do with a problem like this? Not afraid of failure, Ada embarks on a fact-finding mission and conducts scientific experiments, all in the name of discovery. But, this time, her experiments lead to even more stink and get her into trouble!
 
Inspired by real-life makers such as Ada Lovelace and Marie Curie, Ada Twist, Scientist champions girl power and women scientists, and brings welcome diversity to picture books about girls in science. Touching on themes of never giving up and problem solving, Ada comes to learn that her questions might not always lead to answers, but rather to more questions. She may never find the source of the stink, but with a supportive family and the space to figure it out, she’ll be able to feed her curiosity in the ways a young scientist should.
 
Iggy Peck and Rosie Revere have earned their places among the most beloved children’s characters, and they have inspired countless kids and adults to follow their dreams and passions. Now in her own charming and witty picture book, determined Ada Twist, with her boundless curiosity for science and love of the question “Why?,” is destined to join these two favorites.  The book is the perfect tool to remind both young girls and women that they have the intelligence and perseverance to achieve their dreams.

On a tragic day in 1793, Ava believed her life was over...

Widowed several years ago, Ava May Durrell never assumed her life would be any different. Losing her husband at such a young age, a soldier, Lieutenant Samuel Durrell at the Flanders Campaign in the early months of 1793, Ava believed the brief happiness she had all those years ago would be all the love she would have. Her late husband was the son of a baronet. His family wealthy, and hers not, and Ava's lack of wealth and pedigree was seen as a drawback from the moment she married her soldier. On his death, treated with indifference by them, so Ava assumed it was a pattern for life.

In the summer of 1797, Ava is invited to stay with her sister-in-law. Aware it was a reluctant invitation, so with equal reluctance she accepts it. Ava won't be the only guest; the house will be packed with many, all who expect four weeks of fun. One guest is Captain Christopher Tamworth, the youngest son of Sir Peter and Lady Tamworth. A man who faces many demons, and though disinclined to attend, he agrees to attend to enable him to spend more time with his sister, Lady Carrington and his niece. Truthfully, he isn't expecting much. That is he isn't expecting anything of significance until his gaze rests on Ava.

Attracted to the young widow, Ava is someone Christopher wants to know. Equally, she seeks his company drawn in by his position, as someone who fought courageously in the war. Too, there is something about him that gets her heart fluttering; an occurrence that has been dormant for many years. A friendship strikes up, but it is a friendship that leads quickly to something deeper. An attraction so fast, but it is one that both comforts and excites the naval captain and the young widow.

They might have sought solace in each other, but others aren't happy about their attraction, and there are some determined to ensure Ava doesn't get her happy ever after. Some don't want a repeat of a clerk's daughter finding happiness with a baronet's son.

It’s British versus American in this tantalizing tale of opposites attract by bestselling historical romance author Jillian Eaton.

Hugh Jacobson has dark secrets. Secrets he has brought with him all the way across the Atlantic to protect. Ready to start a new life in a new country, he knows the last thing he should be doing is trading insults with a sharp-tongued debutante, no matter how attractive he finds her. And yet after a chance encounter with one Miss Temperance Swan that is precisely what Hugh finds himself doing.

All three of the Swan sisters are strong-willed, but none more so than Temperance. Beautiful and brash, she has never met a man she could not twist around her little finger…until she meets Hugh. Completely immune to her considerable charms, the American is also rough, surly, and disagreeable. In short, he is everything Temperance doesn’t want…and everything she secretly desires.

Unable to deny their passion for one another, Temperance and Hugh are soon entangled in a secret affair that puts everything they hold dear at risk. Including their love…and their lives.

Sewing Techniques: An introduction to construction skills within the design process (Basics Fashion Design)

Jennifer Prendergast

Best price for this book: $ 15.53

Buy

Sewing techniques are sometimes overlooked in the design process but acquiring these skills can be transformational. The ability to turn a two-dimensional design into its three-dimensional realization comes from having mastered basic sewing techniques. Sewing Techniques simplifies the often complex techniques that lie behind this process by arming designers with the precise information and skills needed to undertake each task.

Designers who develop a basic understanding of the processes involved in sample and garment construction often produce successful outcomes based on a more experimental and creative approach applied during the product development process. Developing a sample folio and being able to refer to samples and develop them according to each individual design project is a process that requires experimentation and creative thought underpinned by a basic understanding of sewing techniques. This book explores the essential equipment needed - from fabric types to diagrams identifying component parts of a sewing machine, to machine operation.

Throughout each process, clear diagrams accompanied by explanatory description panels allow readers to achieve the best possible results, including how to troubleshoot problems that may be encountered before and during sewing. Each section concludes with a project, progressing from easy to challenging. Fabrics for each project give designers the opportunity to handle different fabric types and understand the complexities of sourcing and selecting. Mastering the basic principles covered in Sewing Techniques will enable both fashion students and the contemporary craftworker to develop their techniques with a view to becoming creative practice-based professionals.
