Big Boy's Toys

By Scott McGregor
Authors:
Scott McGregor
Men grow old but they don't always grow up. In fact, often the only difference between men and boys is the size of their toys ...All over the country, in sheds, hangers and harbours, a silent army of dedicated other halves has been tinkering away restoring war horses and work horses, pleasure craft and mean machines to their gleaming and gargantuan former glory. At last, in Big Boys Toys, these blokes step out into the daylight to be counted, to stand up for what's big and noisy and leaking oil everywhere. Centurion tanks, tug boats, paddle steamers, super tractors, top-fuellers, flying tricycles: you name it, they're fixing it, or painting it, tuning it or replacing the brake pads - once again.Packed with photos and vital statistics, Big Boys Toys lifts the dust sheet and scrapes back the paint to uncover the whos, the hows and, most mysteriously, the whys, of oversized boys and their magnificent toys.

Buster's Secret Diaries

By Roy Hattersley
Authors:
Roy Hattersley
Diaries celebrating a dog's joy at owning a human, by the most famous dog in Britain.Buster has written these diaries himself - whenever he could remember where he hid the manuscript in his garden. In it he lays bear the truth of how The Man has held Buster back, pretending to protect fur and feathers. Buster's last book was an instant bestseller and, outrageously, The Man took all the credit. To add insult to injury, there were no extra biscuits. Worse, The Man forced Buster to eat low-fat ones, while he himself continued to eat lots of chocolate ginger nuts.Despite The Man's best efforts, Buster still gets into lots of scrapes, and, although his sight and hearing are failing somewhat, he still wants to 'go courting' - especially in springtime. Buster remains unaware of what happened that day at the vet's, and no one will explain it to him, but they continue to allude to something. On a visit to Ireland a gentleman tapped his nose and said to The Man, 'You can't fool me. I've worked it out. You wrote the book.' Buster was so upset by this vile calumny that he wanted to give the gentleman a good nip. Then he remembered the words of someone called Robert Kennedy who The Man goes on about: 'Don't get angry. Get even.' And he has. And this time it's personal.As Buster says, 'No more Mr Nice Dog.'
