From prolific Irish artist, Mary Murphy, comes a stunning Irish language picture book that will evoke lots of giggles, gurgles and smiles - not to mention kisses - from little babies! Prestigious poet and translator, Gabriel Rosenstock, captures in Irish all the fun, fizz and warmth of Mary Murphy's picture book words in this young, interactive title all about...kissing! Did you know that a giraffe kiss is gentle and tall...like this! *Mwaaaah!* Then there are kisses that are quick and small...others are fizzy and bubbly...some are even long and tooty-tooty! There are SO many different types of kisses, just turn the page to see! This split-page book, with its cast of loveable, cuddly-looking parent-and-child animals is the perfect gift for a new baby or a young family who wish to encourage a love of the Irish language in their child. Pog Mar Seo will be the ninth title translated into Irish for the Walker Eireann list, an initiative which celebrates Walker Book's Irish writers and illustrators, creating perfect books for children. It is a standout, young novelty book with split-pages throughout and a stunning finale spread with glitter foil across the page.

Guibert of Nogent's account of the First Crusade is an important but difficult chronicle which will be welcomed in this first English translation. It is a valuable addition to Boydell & Brewer's repertoire of crusading material, and is an interesting text because it represents an attempt to produce a critical history from the eyewitness sources - the Deeds of the Franks and Fulker of Chartres' History of the Expedition to Jerusalem/I>: in the process it reveals considerable detail on Western attitudes to the First Crusade, and, through Guibert's own bias, on medieval mentalites in general. In this translation, Professor Levine has rendered the difficult and idiosyncratic Latin prose and verse into idiomatic English prose, while preserving as far as possible the constructions favoured by Guibert. In addition, he provides a brief introduction containing biographicaland bibliographical information, as well as a summary of the translation.
