The United States is experiencing a new British Invasion—One Direction, the British boy band that has captured the hearts and attention of young Americans in a way that can only be compared to the Beatles. With the recent U.S. launch of their new album Up All Night and their current North American tour, Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry, and Louis have taken the United States by storm, and this account details how five solo contestants on Britain's X Factor in 2010 came together as a band to finish third on the program. The book provides fans with the answers to questions such as What was the motivation for each of Zayn's four tattoos? What vegetable did the guys receive in the mail from an adoring fan? and What's next for One Direction? Including nearly 100 full-color photographs, it's the inside source for all self-proclaimed "Directioners."

"For all those finding it difficult: the sun will shine on you again and the clouds will go away. Remember that tomorrow will be a good day." Captain Sir Tom Moore captured the hearts of a nation, as he walked 100 laps of his garden to raise money for the NHS. Captain Sir Tom wished to celebrate many other inspirational stories from this uncertain time, and with his blessing, these one hundred stories make a book of hope for the future. This is a book of gratitude for his inspiration, and a celebration of incredible everyday heroes from across the UK. These beautifully illustrated true stories of everyday heroes across the nation is introduced by Captain Sir Tom Moore's daughter, Hannah Ingram-Moore. During the pandemic we have found hope in unexpected places, and these one hundred stories of hope - written by Paralympian Danielle Brown MBE - show just how extraordinarily we can work together. We feature well-known stories such as Joe Wicks' family workouts, as well as equally astonishing stories of everyday heroes, such as dancing binmen and fancy-dress postal workers, who brought joy to their neighbourhoods. These are stories of courage and community, of everyday kindness and perseverance. From the scientists racing to find a vaccine, to frontline workers putting themselves at risk, from clapping together to celebrate keyworkers, to breathing cleaner air, discover one hundred hopeful stories from an uncertain time. With lively and engaging illustrations, these are stories that will help you hope that tomorrow will be a good day. Because hope starts with one small step . . . Inspired by, and with the blessing of, one man and his walking frame, a £1 donation will be made to The Captain Tom Foundation for all hardback print sales in the UK and Ireland. The Captain Tom Foundation was created to inspire hope where it is needed most: combating loneliness, helping those facing bereavement, and supporting hospices - and this book celebrates the spirit of this amazing achievement.

Discover the man behind the magic and see how Houdini pulled off his most daring escapes   Before Harry Houdini (1874–1926) became the greatest magician in the world, he was just little Ehrich Weisz, a Hungarian-born immigrant who moved to America with his family and performed stage tricks for a little extra cash. He started off with card tricks and then eventually began performing the escape acts that would make him famous. Known for his daring and death-defying illusions, he would do some of the greatest tricks ever: escaping from a milk can, being buried alive, and being locked inside a crate and thrown into a river. He conquered each of these seemingly impossible feats and showed the world the power of a little magic. Fun, fast-paced, and highly illustrated, Harry Houdini tells the story of the curious boy who became the world’s greatest magician and reveals how Houdini did some of his most stunning escapes. It includes a timeline, glossary, and index.

See how Amelia Earhart went from a little Kansas tomboy to a high-flying feminist icon   Before Amelia Earhart (1897–1939) became a world-famous pilot, she was a little tomboy from Kansas with a taste for adventure. When she visited an airfield and took a short plane ride, she knew she had to be a pilot. She signed up for flying lessons and cropped her hair short so that the other pilots would take her seriously. She became the first woman to make a solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean. With each flight she took and each record she broke, Amelia became more and more of a celebrity. Her final flight was intended to be a trip around the whole world, but her plane disappeared after takeoff—and her disappearance is still a mystery today. Inspirational, highly illustrated, and full of adventure, Amelia Earhart tells the story of the feminist icon who changed the world of aviation. It includes a timeline, glossary, and index.
