The Importance of Being Ernest the Earwig:ハサミムシだって目立ちたいよね



The Importance of Being Ernest the Earwig

The Importance of Being Ernest the Earwig is an excellent story that will inspire children young and old about reading and introduce an interest in classical literature.

The story hinges around Ernest the Earwig who wants to find a story about earwigs and can't understand why no stories ever have earwigs in them. Ernest and his friend Edward discuss how there are many nursery rhymes about animals but never earwigs and spend time putting lots of earwigs into classic rhymes. Unsatisfied by this, he sets out to search for books contains earwigs.

He takes himself to a book shop where he explores all of the children's literature books - taking himself right inside the stories. I loved that the author uses styles of illustrations from original publications of stories such as Wind in the willows, Cinderella and Treasure island to help to really give the impression of Earnest being part of these classic tales.

The beautiful illustrations add hugely to this book and are a great talking point throughout the story. Through his adventures, Ernest realises by reading the stories he has got himself into every one and comes away from the shop feeling like Earwigs are in every title.

Mr. Crocodile loves his job. Every morning he gets up with an alarm. He brushes his teeth. He chooses the right tie to match his outfit, eats a quick slice of toast, and heads off to work on a crowded train. But what exactly is his job? The answer may surprise you! Readers will want to pore over this witty, wordless book again and again, finding new details and fresh stories with every reading.

Manhood: The Bare Reality



5月下旬、土曜日のガーディアンの付録雑誌に特集の一つは、Laura Dodsworthという女性写真家の新作の紹介だった。

Me and my penis: 100 men reveal all

Every one of Laura Dodsworth’s penises is unique: introvert and extrovert, straight and bendy, wobblers and bobblers, growers and showers. There are contented penises that have led full lives, and disappointed penises that have let down their owners – or been let down by their owners.

In Dodsworth’s new book Manhood, every penis tells a story. There is the trans man who invested in the biggest and best; the underpowered poet hung up on his for years, until he decided to celebrate it with The Big Small Penis Party; the man who as a teenager thought he had genital warts and considered killing himself, until he found out they were normal spots; the business leader whose small penis taught him humility; the sex addict whose wife tried to cut it off; and the vicar who enjoyed his first threesome while training for the priesthood.

What surprised her most? “A lot more men feel a sense of shame or anxiety about their size, or an aspect of their performance, than I would have thought. What really moved me is how much that shame and inadequacy had bled into different parts of their life.” She says many were teased as children about their penis and never recovered from it.

 以前、100人の女性の胸部の写真を撮った作者が、今度は、100人の男性のpenisの写真を撮影したというもの。ご心配なく、 写真は全て平素のまま。煽ったりするようなものではない。趣旨は、いったい何人の男性が、自分のpenisいついて自分の言葉で語れるか、ということ。



‘Manhood: The Bare Reality’: 100 Men Had Their Penises Photographed To Explore Masculinity


Manhood: The Bare Reality

Manhood is Pinter & Martin's fastest-ever selling title, and hence availability, especially outside the UK, is limited at the moment. We are expecting more copies in our warehouse in the first week of July, and availability should be good Europe-wide soon after. It will be available in the US mid-August through and bookshops, or order from Wordery if you would like your copy sooner (they should have stock first week of July).

100 men bare all in a collection of photographs and interviews about manhood and ‘manhood’.

These days we are all less bound by gender and traditional roles, but is there more confusion about what being a man means? From veteran to vicar, from porn addict to prostate cancer survivor, men from all walks of life share honest reflections about their bodies, sexuality, relationships, fatherhood, work and health in this pioneering and unique book.

Just as Bare Reality: 100 women, their breasts, their stories presented the un-airbrushed truth about breasts for women, Manhood: The Bare Reality shows us the spectrum of ‘normal’, revealing men’s penises and bodies in all their diversity and glory, dispelling body image anxiety and myths.

Sensitive and compassionate, Manhood will surprise you and reassure you. It may even make you reconsider what you think you know about men, their bodies and masculinity.

The Fox and the Star



The Fox and the Star




Children’s picture books reviews – uplifting messages for Christmas

The Fox and the Star by Coralie Bickford-Smith (Particular Books, £14.99). This beautiful, cloth-bound book is the sort you want to keep for ever. Bickford-Smith is said to have been inspired by William Morris’s graphic work. On the face of it, the story could not be more simple: a fox follows a single star, his “only friend”. Each page is an intricate pattern – the drawings look like woodcuts – the fox forages though beetles and thorns and you can spot the beetles escaping into the book’s margins. It is not an easy journey. The fox loses a star but acquires, eventually, a constellated sky. The more you read, the more allegorical the journey becomes. A star book for Christmas, for all the year round and for all ages.
