My One and Only follows actor George Hamilton's teenage years. It's an appealing comedy, a road movie set in the 1950s and starring Renée Zellweger as his mother, the irrepressible Anne Devereaux. She's a blond Southern belle, married to Dan, a bandleader (Kevin Bacon) who loves her, but is a compulsive womaniser. After finding him in bed with one woman too many, Anne leaves him and takes her two sons: George (Logan Lerman) and Robbie (Mark Rendall), half-brothers from her two marriages. In a sky-blue Cadillac convertible, they set off an odyssey to find Anne a new husband - the only way she can imagine to support them. Anne is 40-ish and attractive to men, but no longer this year's model. Their journeys take them to a series of her old beaus, in Boston, Pittsburgh and St. Louis; these hunting expeditions are seen through George's dubious eyes. One is an ex-military sadist, one a playboy, all not suitable candidates. She tries actually working, but being a waitress is beyond her, and then she apparently strikes pay dirt with a proposal from a man whose family owns a big house-paint business.
A glorious picture book that celebrates diversity, inclusivity and the importance of making friends rather than enemiesReds love being red. Yellows love being yellow. And Blues love being blue. The problem is that they just don't like each other. But one day, along comes a different colour who likes Reds, Yellows and Blues, and suddenly everything starts to change. Maybe being different doesn't mean you can't be friends ...A very special picture book that supports the adage that there is more that unites us than divides us. Along Came a Different just goes to show how much better we can all be when we come together to find common ground as friends. Every bookshelf should have a copy.Tom McLaughlin has illustrated several books for Bloomsbury, including The Story Machine, which has received wonderfully positive reviews and has sparked a number of thought-provoking articles on dyslexia (which Tom understands well, being dyslexic himself).

The curious thing about being a fan of Brasshouse? You?re pretty much talking about being into one solitary but extremely unforgettable band: the amusingly monikered Too Many Zooz. The musical style was ?branded? by drummer King of Sludge, who recognized that there was no worthy existing classification for the New York trio, whose other two members are the equally unclassifiable Leo P. (saxophone) and Matt Doe (trumpet).?Brasshouse is a high energy musical conversation,? Matt insists. ?Though I honestly don?t think there is a good way to describe it in words. It?s about many different feelings and sounds and emotions.?Or as KOS so decisively puts it, ?I don?t really care about what?s happening in music - I just make art that I enjoy making.?

If the choice is between security and freedom – what means most to you? Eight months have passed since Free Norway mobilized and Norway was on the brink of war. In order to maintain peace, the Norwegian government, led by Anders Knudsen, has made a number of compromises with the Russians, but the country is still plagued by terror and unrest. From self-imposed exile in Sweden, Jesper fights his own secret resistance struggle. A conflict between the Norwegian Coast Guard and a Russian security company guarding an oil and gas refinery on Melkøya in northern Norway results in weapons being drawn. No one is willing to back down. This tense situation has severe consequences – both personal and political. The battle lines are drawn and the choices people make become more important. And more difficult. Because in a grey area the difference between good and evil is almost impossible to discern. And you must constantly ask: Can I trust you?
