When Harry's mum tells him they are going to get an au pair, he isn't quite sure what it means. When he finds out it's a girl to help look after him and baby brother, Fred, he feels a bit suspicious. It might just be a good excuse for the school bully to tease him. However, he soon warms to Astrid when she turns up and especially when she gives him an idea that stops the bully from ever bothering him again. All the same, Harry can't help wondering why Astrid's never heard of tin openers or Coke, and how come her suitcase can move around by itself...

Astrid Kirchherr – A Retrospective presents a stunning collection of photographs by the legendary Hamburg photographer, including some never before seen early shots of the Beatles. This richly illustrated book also puts Kirchherr’s work in a context above and beyond the shadow of Merseybeat: though she has taken few photographs since 1967 her work has been exhibited in Hamburg, Bremen, Liverpool, London, Vienna, New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, Indianapolis and Tokyo, highlighting her significant international presence in photography over the past 50 years. The book draws heavily on unparalleled access to the archives of Astrid Kirchherr and includes photographs of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Kirchherr's former fiance, Stuart Sutcliffe, as well as other key protagonists in the Beatles story, such as Klaus Voormann and Rory Storm. Essays from acclaimed contemporary music writers Jon Savage and Michael Bracewell complete a book that will be compulsory reading - and viewing - for Beatles fans and photography students alike.

The work of Astrid Zydower has a significant place in the sculpture of the 20th century. She was considered by Richard Buckle to be one of the greatest realist sculptors in the world since Epstein and Rodin: An accolade with which Epstein agreed. During her lifetime she fought against publicity, and there was never a specific exhibition devoted to her, but this book attempts to reveal her genius, by gathering together some of the many photographs taken of her and her work. To this has been added a short biography assembled from my own and other people's memories of this remarkable person. It will be seen that not only was she a brilliant artist, but a sincere friend and confidant to those who knew her. With a foreword by the Earl & Countess of Harewood.

With extraordinary emotional power, Linda Olsson’s stunningly well-crafted debut novel recounts the unusual and unexpected friendship that develops between two women. Veronika, a young writer from New Zealand, rents a house in a small Swedish village as she tries to come to terms with a recent tragedy while also finishing a novel. Her arrival is silently observed by Astrid, an older, reclusive neighbor who slowly becomes a presence in Veronika’s life, offering comfort in the form of companionship and lovingly prepared home-cooked meals. Set against a haunting Swedish landscape, Astrid & Veronika is a lyrical and meditative novel of love and loss, and a story that will remain with readers long after the characters’ secrets are revealed.

Everyone knows a bully like Astrid--she's "the meanest girl you could possibly meet," and she and her family have moved in down the street! She has a bad attitude and thinks nothing of terrorizing tabby cats, trashing tulip beds, or toppling lemonade stands. It's not easy to stay out of Astrid's way. Who has the strength of character to ask her why she's so mean? Not since Bootsie Barker Bites has such a deliciously mischievous character (who gets her comeuppance) been drawn. From the author of Dirtball Pete comes another character you won't soon forget.
