A reissue of a truly classic title on the Batsford backlist. First published in 1935, it is a wonderful snapshot of our capital before the Second World War, and a charming insight into our attitudes to urban life back in the Thirties. Our posh guide Cohen-Portheim offers us his interpretation of life in London through her people, her buildings and her history. The chapters include: Towns within Town Streets and their Life Green London London and the Arts London Amusements and Night Life Hotels and Restaurants Traditional London London and the British London and the Foreigner (surprisingly liberal!) It includes the iconic Brian Cook cover illustration of Ludgate Circus and St Pauls, and should be sought after for that alone. Add in the charm of the authentic voice of a 1930s Londoner, it should be enjoyed by all Londoners.

Until then, stuck in his children's home in Castle Dudbury New Town, with the nasty cook Mr. Wilkins watching his every move, football had been his only escape.

And why was a journalist murdered shortly after Johnny talked to him? When Johnny finds out he has a sister, he decides to run away to find her.

The spirits were at work here, somehow. But why? On returning to London, Ellie investigates the mystery surrounding 47 Foster Square. Who is the sender of ghostly messages asking her for help? What is the secret of the Meadowes family? And what does Edward know about all this? With her parents about to divorce, and her Mum acting very strangely, Ellie quickly discovers that a sinister force lies between her and the truth... The Spirit of London is the second instalment in the thrilling and suspenseful ‘Spirits’ series and follows the success of The People’s Book Prize-nominated Childish Spirits. It focuses on slavery and a mixed-race family in Georgian times. Ellie finds herself facing a very dangerous foe and will need all her courage and humanity to get her through. The Spirit of London also sets up a story arc that will continue into future books in the series. The book will appeal to girls and boys of upper primary and lower secondary age – and to parents and teachers reading the book aloud!

In and out of both legality and popularity - gin is the only drink to be simultaneously shorthand for metropolitan glamour and alcoholic squalor. It crosses paths with all professions and cuts through class - writers and artists, politicians and scientists, royalty - gin is a great leveller. 'Gin Glorious Gin' is funny, quirky, interesting, informative and full of famous names - Dickens to Churchill, Hogarth to Hemingway - and unknown voices who impacted our wonderful capital city.
