    Isabel Finds a Home

    The story of a steam engine – for children of all sizes (and ages!)

    By Robert Gillman – Illustrations by Alan Ward

    Based on the life history of an industrial steam locomotive, this book has been written for children, as an introduction about the importance of saving our railway heritage. It is hoped they – and perhaps grown-ups, too – will develop a passion for preservation at a young age, and be encouraged to join the thousands of volunteers who spend their spare time lovingly restoring engines and railway infrastructure for us all to enjoy.

    Of Trains and Transportation

    £2.95£6.99

    The romance of steam and the tranquility of ocean travel bring warm thoughts to people’s minds, but mention the word “poetry” and some folk are put off straight away! For that reason, “Of Trains and Transportation” is a little book that provides an easy introduction to the wonderful world of verse that everyone can enjoy reading, reciting – or just listening to the authors performing their work on CD.

    The Hunter & The Hunted

    £5.99

    By Al Wilde

    The Hunter and the Hunted tells the story about Jake Johnson, an 11 year old schoolboy, who is just about to start his summer holidays.  The holidays start off dramatically and badly, when his dad gets mugged on their doorstep and gets taken to hospital.  It becomes obvious that Jake’s dad is not just a businessman but is also involved in working for the secret service.

    With the help of his grandma (a former SOE operative), Jake and his mum set off on a journey across England and Scotland, to try to find out the significance of the map that has come into their possession.

    A Penny for the Gas

    £5.99

    By Alice Reynolds

    Alice Reynolds was born in 1916; she enjoyed a long and interesting life. She was extremely active well into her nineties, and was an inspiring example to those of us who were much younger, but struggled to keep up!

    Her biography, “A Penny for the Gas,” throws much light on how, whilst growing up in Brighton – and later, throughout her adult life – she developed her positive and indomitable spirit. Alice knew both hard times and joyful periods in her life; she had four husbands and seven children and, as Alice always said, “Life is what you make it.”
