A Brief Guide To Self-Help Classicsد.إ46.00Add to cart
From Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People, published in 1936, which has sold over 30 million copies to date, to the mind management programme of Professor Steve Peters’ The Chimp Paradox, a concise and insightful guide to seventy of the most influential self-help books ever published

This is a work of reference to dip into, that acknowledges that some of the most powerful insights into ourselves can be found in texts that aren’t perceived as being ‘self-help’ books, and that wisdom and consolation can be found in the strangest places.

Karah Sutton has crafted a vivid and rollicking adventure that proves a wolf doesn’t have to be big or bad to win the day! –Rosanne Parry, New York Times bestselling author of A Wolf Called Wander
Since she was a pup, Zima has been taught to fear humans–especially witches–but when her family is threatened, she has no choice but to seek help from the witch Baba Yaga.
Baba Yaga never does magic for free, but it just so happens that she needs a wolf’s keen nose for a secret plan she’s brewing . . . Before Zima knows what’s happening, the witch has cast a switching spell and run off into the woods, while Zima is left behind in Baba Yaga’s hut–and Baba Yaga’s body!
Meanwhile, a young village girl named Nadya is also seeking the witch’s help, and when she meets Zima (in Baba Yaga’s form), they discover that they face a common enemy. With danger closing in, Zima must unite the wolves, the witches and the villagers against an evil that threatens them all.
Infused with Russian folklore and brought vividly to life in Pauliina Hannuniemi’s gorgeous illustrations, Karah Sutton’s magical debut is a celebration of wolves and witches, and the importance of finding common ground with our so-called enemies.
