Book of Thunks by Ian Gilbert

Book Description

A great gift book for possibly the most impossible person to buy for! The Book of Thunks will shake up your templates, rattle your thought routines and force you to think about things differently. A Thunk is a beguiling question about everyday things that stops you in your tracks and helps you start to look at the world in a whole new light. So find a friend or family member, ask a Thunk, disagree with their answer (remember there are no right and wrong answers) and keep your brain working longer and better. If you typed the word run a thousand times would that be a short story? Warning: A few of these Thunks are unsuitable for use with children.

Gilbert Filbert and His Big Mad Box by Ian Gilbert Gilbert Filbert and His Big Mad Box, Hardback (November 2016)

Gilbert Filbert and His Big MAD Box is the story of one boy's desire to make a difference and help his mother find her smile again. It is a book about a boy, a box and a battle for a penguin but, more than that, it is a tale about families, hope and how to make dreams come true.

Don't Send Him in Tomorrow by Ian Gilbert Don't Send Him in Tomorrow, Paperback (August 2016)

In Don't Send Him in Tomorrow, Jarlath O'Brien shines a light on the marginalised, disenfranchised and forgotten children of today's schools. The percentage of children achieving the government's expected standard in benchmark tests is national news every year.

There is Another Way by Ian Gilbert There is Another Way, Paperback (November 2015)

We are living at a time when loud voices from inside and outside the profession are telling teachers and school leaders 'this' is the way education should be done. This is how you should lead a school. This is how you should manage a class. This is how children should learn.
