    50 People Who Screwed Up Scotland
    Allan Brown - Paperback - Constable
    To be Scottish is to have a lot to live down, and as Allan Brown shows, this lot do the job superbly. Whether it be Robert Burns, indecipherable bard of rustic gibberish or Sean Connery, die-hard advocate of a country he refuses to live in. Or, Alex Salmond, the chortling bullfrog of separatism or Tommy Sheridan, the sexy socialist hardliner. They're all here, and many others; a veritable embassy of bad ambassadors. '50 People Who Screwed Up Scotland' is a humorous and chronologically-sequential series of essays, histories, and anecdotes that consider those episodes and occurrences in Scotland's political, cultural and social story where, against all odds, defeat was plucked from the jaws of victory.

    The Complete Peanuts 1985-1986
    Charles M. Schulz - Hardback - Canongate
    'The Complete Peanuts' reaches the go-go mid-1980s with this volume: 'mallies', 'punkers' (Snoopy with a mohawk!), killer bees, and Halley's Comet. The gang go to 'rain camp' and 'survival camp', the World War I Flying Ace comes down with the flu, Charlie Brown poses for a swimsuit calendar, Peppermint Patty gets a crabby tutor plus Molly Volley, the unbearable, licensable 'Tapioca Pudding', and plenty of Spike and his cactus!

    The Complete Peanuts 1979-1980
    Charles M. Schulz - Hardback - Canongate
    This volume of 'The Complete Peanuts' features the long, surprisingly dramatic sequence in which a grievously ill Charlie Brown checks himself into a hospital while his friends worry. But the rest of the stories in this, the final volume from the 1970s, are far less sombre, as Snoopy launches his 'bird scout' treks, Peppermint Patty gets leaked on at school and sues - plus one of the great forgotten romances in Peanuts history!

Also in this volume, Peppermint Patty witnesses the 'butterfly miracle', Sally gets fat, Charlie Brown's team loses its baseball field, Linus is still not Sally's 'Sweet Babboo', more Beagle Scout adventures with Snoopy, and Molly Volley and 'Crybaby' Boobie return for a rematch.

    The Complete Peanuts 1983-1984
    Charles M. Schulz - Hardback - Canongate
    This volume of 'The Complete Peanuts' is particularly romance-heavy as the Charlie Brown/Peppermint Patty/Marcie triangle heats up; love blossoms between two of the 'Beagle Scout' birds; and Linus is still not Sally's 'Sweet Babboo'! Meanwhile, Charlie Brown becomes, in his worst baseball-related humiliation to date, a Pelican - and Snoopy's brother Spike is still stuck in Needles, surrounded by coyotes, with a cactus as his only friend.

    The Pied Piper Of Hamelin
    Russell Brand - Hardback - Canongate
    Welcome to Russell Brand's Hamelin. A pompous and ugly town, where the grown-ups are all stuck up their own backsides and their greedy, bum-scratching offspring are usually squirrelling up their own noses. When a band of anarchic rats descends on this bombastic bunch, wreaking havoc all over Hamelin, there's only one man for the job: the wise and wily Pied Piper.
