The Treasure Hunt: True Stories of Treasures Lost, Stolen and Found

Which continents will have secrets to explore? Which will remain undiscovered? Which artist’s work has been stolen more than eighty times? Where can you find a Terracotta Army? What is the Amber Room? Where is the wreck of The Titanic? Readers can wile away an afternoon as they explore this fascinating book. Encompassing archaeology, the history of art, palaeontology, history, and geography, this book is an immersive odyssey of armchair travelling across the globe.

Nour's Secret Library

In a beautiful city torn apart by the ugliness of war, Nour and her cousin dream of a safe space where they can feed their imaginations. This evocative picture book by a Lebanese writer and a Romanian illustrator is inspired by the true Syrian story of Daraya’s secret library that brought hope to its citizens.
