What a chancy thing to happen to my brother. I had to go for a wee and he gets turned into a superhero and given a mission to save the world! And if that’s not enough, save another Universe which is going to collide and explode, all at the same…
Actually, this book is a compilation of drawings by many of the McKimmie children and grandchildren. Acknowledgements are given at the back of the book for all the helpers who drew images to complement the story. Visually, there are so many unusual childlike drawings, that you find yourself lingering and…
It is no surprise that the author's most favourite themes are those about the environment, and kids who just enjoy themselves. Elizabeth grew up on a farm and had a happy childhood. She and her siblings played and observed the Australian wildlife that surrounded them and would have seen every…
The end pages of this book are blank, except for an empty chair with a cushion. One gets the feeling that it is not an important part of the nursery furniture. When a young mouse arrives in his room, he sees a bear, sitting on HIS very chair! The chair…
The cover of this book will be a magnet for children. The colours and the shiny paper, the animals and their tracks will attract many little hands. I find it irresistible and can't wait to open the book and read. For our country and cultures to be celebrated in this…

Summer Rain Featured

Summer Rain is a beautifully written and illustrated children's picture book. It conveys an enormous wealth of meaning, understanding and joyfulness throughout. The Aboriginal appearance and art work is delightful, while the feeling of the steamy tropics is wonderfully conveyed.
This 20th anniversary edition of Tashi has all the wonderfully familiar features, which bring instant recognition. The front cover consists of the single word TASHI, with the original picture of Tashi on a swan. The colours are all the same as the original edition as are the end pages. The…
This is a very gently coloured, gently told story about clouds and friendship and persistence. The end papers at the beginning show just clouds; at the end they show clouds and another character, in a hot air balloon. This encases a story about a shift of opinion and the joy…
This is the third book in the series of Phyllis Wong, magician and amateur sleuth. It contains all the best elements of a book of its genre, and presents them in a wonderful, imaginative style for older readers. Having a female character to initiate the action will appeal to many…
This fantasy story for young readers contains all the elements of a fantasy genre, put together in an excellent and cohesive manner. Moll, the gypsy girl who knows that she is different, and Gryff, the wild cat, who is always at her side face their adventures together. 
As the title suggests, this book shows the Royal William, Kate and Baby George welcoming their new son and brother, pre-empting the real event.  Although the story could be about any young family bringing home a new baby, it is quite representative of a Royal Family.
It has always been said the at there is more to the traditional fairy tale than just the story about good and evil, but when Neil Gaiman gets hold of it, there is definitely more to it than ever before. In his darkly creative manner, he turns the tale of…
In this long awaited equal to The Meaning of Smekday we again meet up with Gratuity and her alien off-sider J. Lo as they set out to once again right some wrongs as only they can do but in the meantime and before we get to that bit:..........
