Invented in the US in 1916, this clever chap will help little historians to remember their times tables just as kids did in the 1920s!

[2]  John Gould & Australia: The Business of Nature by Roslyn Russell

A driven - and a self-made man - the Devon-born John Gould carved out a career in natural science which led him and his wife to Tasmania in 1838 and then the mainland to document the wildlife. Exquisite artwork by Gould's artists, alongside his own expert commentary, was the result. This wonderfully illustrated book examines the life of the man often considered to be the "father of Australian ornithology".
