Babies: the Mumsnet Guide is an introduction to the strange world of the postnatal, a world of strong emotions and revolting excretions, the sublime and the ridiculous. It is the gathered up, boiled-down wisdom of thousands of mums and the occasional dad who have posted on since its launch in June 2000 about everything to do with life after baby. From thoughtful advice about breastfeeding, colic and getting some sleep to debates about parenting gurus and the best form of childcare, by way of a fair bit of gore and the odd bit of flagrant silliness about postnatal vaginal circumference and baby names, Babies: the Mumsnet Guide contains the advice, thoughts, experiences and random burblings of thousands of parents. Parents who have done a lot of the worrying for you already. This is the indispensible guide from the frontline of parenting.

When Lucy Mangan was little, stories were everything. They opened up different worlds and cast new light on this one. She was whisked away to Narnia – and Kirrin Island – and Wonderland. She ventured down rabbit holes and womble burrows into midnight gardens and chocolate factories. No wonder she only left the house for her weekly trip to the library. In Bookworm, Lucy brings the favourite characters of our collective childhoods back to life and disinters a few forgotten treasures poignantly, wittily using them to tell her own story, that of a born, and unrepentant, bookworm.
