Top Books to buy for Chrsitmas 2006

China: the Kraken Awakes (Hank Hankski and Suzie Wang)

Why Don't Penguins' Feet Freeze? (Newt Psientist)
A fascinating review of the many different ways to eat penguin and how to store their hacked up carcasses. With fish stocks running out around the globe, attention is turning to the as yet untapped source of protein in the vast penguin flocks of Antarctica.

Dangerous Book for Boys (Alfred Noble)
A hollow, hardback book filled with gelignite and edged with razors, this is indeed a very dangerous book for boys.

In the latest outing for flanimals, a serial killer is on the loose and the FBI must enlist the help of the flanimals in order to track him down.

The God Delusion (Dichard Rawkins)
