This is an excellent reference book for young astronomers-in-training, as it has clear diagrams, plenty of useful knowledge and ways to identify stars and constellations, and is full of keys and info-boxes that fill in important details for each section of the sky.

It even starts off with a comprehensive "How to use this Atlas" section which explains how to interpret the pages' information.

I was most impressed with the transparent overlay pages, containing the outlines of constellations and their component stars. It made it a lot easier to spot them in the night sky.

Having dabbled in Astronomy at an early age, and still carrying more than a hint of interest in that area, I found this book to be a wonderful re-introduction to the glorious stellar field that surrounds us.

Overall, most impressed. The price would put it into the 'semi-serious reader/hobbyist' range, but for those dedicated to the sciences, it is a very reasonable price to pay for such a valuable publication. Another winner.

Product reviews for listing 896: 4F for Freaks
Author: Leigh Hobbs

Product image for 4F for FreaksClass 4F is a mighty challenge for any teacher, with One-Eyed Eileen's gang of freaks and their naughty antics. But Miss Corker (alias Miss Schnorkel) works out a clever way to handle them. From the creator of Old Tom and Horrible Harriet, and inspired by 25 years of teaching, comes another unforgettable cast of hilarious characters.

It's Miss Corker's first day at her new school (in fact, it's her first day at any school) and she is looking forward to meeting her class...
