JSON and WiFi are two robot brothers who want to be nerdy just like their mother. In January of 2014, Lisa Seacat DeLuca ran a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign to produce her board book, a robot story, and animated eBook. The book teaches kids how to count to ten in binary. It uses different types of switches to represent the 1's and 0's of binary, the code used by computers to store and process information.
“A well-researched, compelling account”. Saul David. The successful Allied campaign in Salonika – Thessaloniki in modern Greece – began a chain of events that ended the First World War. Yet, until now, it has been dismissed by historians as a sideshow, with Britain’s contribution relegated to that of a mere bit-player. In No Sideshow, an exhaustively researched account of this little known theatre of war, Nigel Birch does history a service by reminding us not only of the vital role played by Britain in the Salonika campaign, but also of its wider significance. Having first landed at the Greek port of Salonika in October 1915, the British fought alongside French, Greek, Italian, Russian and Serbian forces for more than three years. The principal enemy was Bulgaria, supported by Germany, Turkey and Austria-Hungary. At its peak the British Salonika Force numbered 220,000 out of a total allied force of 600,000. The major allied effort came in mid-September 1918 and, after victory at the Battle of Dobro Pole, Bulgaria agreed to an armistice on the 30th. This, in turn, prompted Turkey, Austria-Hungary and finally Germany to conclude their own armistices, thus bringing the First Word War to a close. The Salonika Campaign is regarded by most historians as being irrelevant to the outcome of the War.
In this centenary year, Nigel Birch’s much overdue reassessment comes to a very different conclusion. “A well-researched, compelling account of Britain’s contribution to a much neglected but highly significant theatre of World War One”. Saul David. "A concise yet wide ranging examination of the British role in the Allied military victory against Bulgaria in September 1918.
This study shows how the British contribution to the oft maligned Salonika Campaign directly contributed to Allied victory in the Balkans and beyond." Alan Wakefield. Nigel Birch is a Chartered Accountant and he lives in London and Gloucestershire. He gained his MA in Military History from the University of Buckingham. He is a member of the Salonika Campaign Society and has travelled in the area. No Sideshow is his first book.

In 1864, the British writer James Redding Ware (1832–c.1909), under the pseudonym Andrew Forrester, published The Female Detective, introducing readers to the first professional female detective character, G., and paving the way for the more famous female detectives of the early twentieth century, namely Miss Marple and Nancy Drew. This edition from the British Library makes The Female Detective available for the first time as a trade paperback for the general public. Characteristic of the casebooks of the time, The Female Detective features a number of different cases, each of which is narrated by G. She uses methods similar to those of her male counterparts, examining the scene of the crime, looking for clues, and employing skill and subterfuge to achieve her ends, all the while trying to conceal her own tracks and her identity from others.
Her deductive methods anticipate those of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, who would not appear for another twenty years, and like Holmes, she regards the regular constabulary with disdain. For all the intrigue and interest of the stories, little is ever revealed about G. herself, and her personal circumstances remain a mystery throughout. But it is her energetic and savvy approach to solving crimes that is her greatest appeal, and the reappearance of the original lady detective will captivate a new generation of crime fiction fans.
