"A whirlwind tour of the globe, seeking out the highest, deepest, scariest, smelliest... Things on the planet. What's the longest place name? The oldest fossil? Each page is dedicated to a theme: Animal Experiences, Deadly and Dangerous, .. Quirky graphics, illustrations and photographs capture these extreme themes from a child's point of view."

You may have heard of a very happy event coming up at the end of April. It's the wedding of our very own, dear Prince William and his radiant fiance, Ms Kate Middleton. To prepare for and celebrate this wonderful occasion, For Dummies have brought us this charming guide to Royal Weddings past, present and future written by the distinguished editor of the Independent on Sunday, Julian Knight. As an extra special treat Dummies have given us a sample of the book to download for absolutely nothing. That's right, free! You can launch this splendid pamphlet in a new window, here
What you may not realise, however, is just how close we are here in the Book Depository basement (sorry, Lower Ground Floor...) to the elegant shadow of the Castle and all things house of Windsor. Indeed, every other day, our very foundations are shaken by the stirring marching of the changing of the Irish guards. It gives us such a thrill to be able to just about see the boots of the soldiers drilling up and down the street in patriotic fashion.
Anyway, we asked the work experience boy to knock up a handy visual guide to let you all know just how lucky we are...
