Minecraft is a multi-platform block-based gaming sensation available on Xbox, PlayStation, PC and mobile devices. Whether you're in Creative, Survival or Hardcore Mode, the Minecraft books contain all the advice you need to survive and thrive! Minecraft Blockopedia is your indispensable guide to the very stuff of Minecraft: the blocks! Minecraft can be an overwhelming place in which to first set foot, but with this book you'll always know what's around you, in the air, under your feet, and at your virtual fingertips. Every single block is featured with its location, function, and behaviour. Blockopedia is grouped into helpful sections by type of block: naturally generated, ores and minerals, plants, and liquids and gases. In addition to their properties, you'll get all the stats on blast resistance, transparency, light emittance, and block drops. You'll also discover the secrets of each block and informative facts about how they behave. Basic blocks such as dirt, grass, and cobblestone are found in abundance in the Overworld. But for the rarer variety, such as the Monster Spawner, it will mean a trip into the Nether dimension. Beautifully presented in hexagonal block form in a stylish box: this is the ultimate gift for both the experienced minecrafter and the novice. For ages nine and upwards. With Minecraft Blockopedia you'll survive better, live happier, and build stronger. Be sure to look out for the rest of the Minecraft series: Minecraft Beginner's Handbook, Minecraft Construction Handbook, Minecraft Combat Handbook and Minecraft Redstone Handbook.

UK and Ireland's best-loved comedian Dara O Briain takes you on a journey from the safety of your comfiest chair to the furthest reaches of space (and beyond!) So you want to go into space? WHY?! (No, really - it's sort of a terrible idea. We humans are perfectly designed for life on Earth. We can walk around, breathe, drink water, eat vegetables, read books, not get poisoned or crushed to death when we go outside - it's lovely right where we are.) Not convinced? GOOD! People have been dreaming about space travel for centuries - there's something amazing about the idea of leaving our planet behind and setting out to explore the Universe - there's so much we still don't know.

Lighter than Air: Sophie Blanchard, the First Female Pilot
Take to the skies with the beautifully told tale of Sophie Blanchard - a woman meant for the air - as she discovers the incomparable sensation of flight. Behold the story of Sophie Blanchard, an extraordinary woman who is largely forgotten despite her claim to being the very first female pilot in history. In eighteenth-century France, balloonomania has fiercely gripped the nation ... but all of the pioneering aeronauts are men. The job of shattering that myth falls to a most unlikely figure: a shy girl from a seaside village, entirely devoted to her dream of flight. Sophie is not the first woman to ascend in a balloon, nor the first woman to accompany an aeronaut on a trip, but she will become the first woman to climb to the clouds and steer her own course. The words of Matthew Clark Smith bring Sophie's story to light after so many years, while Matt Tavares' atmospheric art and unique perspectives take her to new heights.
