Goat: Cooking and Eating
Goat: Cooking and Eating Sented by Michael

We should all be eating more goat. It's sustainable, ethical, highly nutritious and low in calories. Why then does it remain so underused and misunderstood? This book tells the story of how food and farming culture developed in the west without the help of this staple of global agriculture, and showcases the best recipes from around the world using this fabulous beast. Utterly delicious cooked fast and lean or slow-cooked in curries, stews, braises and roasts, from kebabs to stir-fries to sausages, goat is the one meat we should all be eating more of. With 100 dishes created by Cabrito's founder James Whetlor and chef Matt Williamson, plus a foreword by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, and guest recipes from world-renowned chefs including Yotam Ottolenghi, Gill Meller, Neil Rankin and Jeremy Lee, Goat is a ground-breaking, bold cookbook. Essential reading for anyone with even a passing interest in food and the way we eat today, and set to be the definitive guide on the subject for years to come, Goat is a genre-defining book. All royalties from the book will be donated to Farm Africa.

Life in the Sloth Lane: Slow Down and Smell the Hibiscus

Is there a reason sloths are always smiling? Yes! They’ve mastered the art of living slow in a world whose pace is making everyone crazy. Along with being the “it” animal—“sloths are the new kittens” (Washington Post)—the sloth clearly has much to teach us about how to live. Combining the irresistible cuteness of sloths with words of wisdom about slowing down, Life in the Sloth Lane is a mindfulness book like no other. On spread after spread we see heart-tugging, full-color images of sloths—grown-ups and babies, both two-toed and three-toed, draped in trees, lying on hammocks, eating, hugging, nuzzling, playing—paired with inspiration on the joy of living slow, including quotes from Thoreau and Emily Dickinson, Paulo Coehlo and Elizabeth Gilbert. Written by Lucy Cooke, author of the sellout Sloths calendar and the “Steven Spielberg of sloth filmmaking” (The Atlantic), Life in the Sloth Lane is the perfect gift for anyone who wants to step out of the fast lane. Or—hint, hint—needs to.

Camp Panda: Helping Cubs Return to the Wild

From the Sibert medal-winning author of TEAM MOON and the bestselling GIRLS THINK OF EVERYTHING comes a riveting, timely account of panda conservation efforts in China, perfect for budding environmentalists and activists.

But within the past forty years, more than fifty percent of the panda's already shrinking habitat has been destroyed by humans, leaving the beautiful and beloved giant panda vulnerable to extinction. Despite the seemingly insurmountable odds-poaching, habitat destruction, pollution, human overpopulation, and global climate change-the panda is making a comeback. How? By humans teaching baby pandas how to be wild and stay wild.
