The wonderfully inventive and incorrigibly curious crew at The Geography Collective have launched a new blog to track stories in the media about risk aversion. Our recently published book: Mission:Explore, written by The Geography Collective and illustrated by Tom Morgan-Jones is the purest antidote known to man*(kind) and beast for the cotton wool culture that our children are being enveloped in.
Do please go and take a look at their blog: http://thegeographycollective.wordpress.com/ as well as the book, and please tell your friends.

‘Oscar Grillo cannot draw a line without it spitting and spiralling into a storm of expressive features and skittering bodies. He IS a tempest, and this adaptation captures the energy and fury of a Globe first-night performance back in the day.’
The Page become the Stage with Oscar Grillo’s powerful and engaging interpretation of The Tempest to be published 19th June. The fifth book in our Graphic Shakespeare range, Oscar Grillo’s version of Shakespeare’s The Tempest will re-define the genre with its quality of illustration. This version has the full text; nothing has been added, nothing has been taken away, none of Shakespeare’s poetic verse has been dumbed-down. Grillo’s spectacular and quirky illustration is not merely illustrative, but interpretive. This inventive re-imagining of one of Shakepeare’s finest plays is a must-have for any literature or graphic novel enthusiast.
As one of Shakespeare’s more fantastical plays, The Tempest has been notoriously difficult to produce on stage. With their associated elements of magic, the monstrous Caliban, the fairy Ariel and his master Prospero demand a more fluid medium if they are to truly reflect the imagination of their creator.
Oscar Grillo now joins the ranks of famous directors as he turns the page into the stage with his graphic interpretation of what is thought to be Shakespeare’s last – and for many, most compelling – play.
Using colour and innovative use of shading, award-winning animator, Grillo brings the characters to life with great humour, pathos and persuasion on Prospero’s mystical island.
Good Morning Afghanistan, Waseem Mahmood’s most recent book, recounts a true story of how a courageous band of media warriors assist a broken nation in finding a voice through the radio.

A glimmer of hope emerges in the form of a spirited little breafast-time radio programme, Good Morning Afghanistan.
“Good Morning Afghanistan… was an important start in bringing fat and uncensored information to the war-stricken people of Afghanistan.” From the foreword by Hamid Karzai, President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan
