Littlenose the Hero by John Grant

Book Description

This selection of stories introduces us to Littlenose, the caveboy with an irrepressible sense of adventure. We find out how he comes to meet Two-Eyes, his pet mammoth, who been languishing in the market's 'reject' department until Littlenose comes along. In other stories, Littlenose enjoys feasting at the Sun Dance, and learning how to make piercing noises (sorry, music) with a stalk of hemlock. He also finds time to discover some cave paintings while exploring (and is forced to make a hasty exit when the cave's inhabitants return). And he finds himself further away from home than anticipated after taking a trip down the river. Finally, in the title story, Littlenose saves the day by rescuing his father from a pit in the ground (just don't ask why the pit was there in the first place...).

Eureka! by John Grant Eureka!, Paperback (October 2016)

Galileo gained notoriety over his battle with the Vatican, but did you know that this "father of modern science" was also an accomplished lute player? And Darwin of course discovered the principle by which new species are formed, but his bold curiosity extended to the dinner table as well. (And how many people can say they've eaten an owl!)

Spooky Science by John Grant Spooky Science, Hardback (November 2015)

Skeptics of the supernatural will enjoy this humourous jaunt through the long history of scientific enquiry into paranormal and psychic phenomena. Telepathy, life after death, spirit communication, the astral plane, reincarnation and spoon bending. John Grant investigates the pseudoscience of spooky stuff to fascinating and often hilarious effect.

Debunk it! by John Grant Debunk it!, Paperback (February 2015)

We live in an era of misinformation, much of it spread by authority figures, including politicians, religious leaders, broadcasters, and, of course, apps and websites. With so much bogus information coming from so many sources, how can anyone be expected to discover the truth? The author explains how to identify bad evidence and poor arguments.

Littlenose Collection: The Magician by John Grant Littlenose Collection: The Magician, Paperback (July 2014)

Gorgeous bind-up containing fifteen stories about Littlenose the caveboy and Two-Eyes, his pet mammoth (and partner in crime).
