    Meet the utterly irresistible Miss Petitfour (a name of unknown origin but possibly descended from bakers of tiny delicious cakes). She loves baking and making and dancing with her cats, but most of all she loves to fly. All she has to do is pick up a favourite tablecloth (preferably the one with the paisley print), catch the breeze and she swooshes off on an adventure – with her many cats (Minky, Misty, Taffy, Purrsia, Pirate, Mustard, Moutarde, Hemdala, Earring, Grigorovich, Clasby, Captain Captain, Captain Catkin, Captain Clothespin, Your Shyness and Sizzles) dangling paw-to-tail behind her.

    In five utterly captivating stories of gentle adventure, delicious edibles (with cheese for the cats), occasional peril and heart-zinging warmth, poet and novelist Anne Michaels (author of bestselling, award-winning Fugitive Pieces) makes a charming, purrfect debut as a children's author.

    Publishing status: R/PRINT UND CONSIDERATION

    When Alice steps through the looking-glass in the drawing room one snowy, drowsy afternoon, she finds herself in a peculiar, topsy-turvy world where chess pieces walk about, flowers talk and nothing is quite as it seems. Alice is caught up in a bizarre chess game and encounters some rather eccentric characters, both new and familiar - including the argumentative Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, the Lion and the Unicorn, the nonsensical White Queen and the quick-tempered Red Queen.

    The story features the poems, "The Walrus and the Carpenter" and "Jabberwocky", which have become just as well known as Alice's adventures themselves.

    To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll's first Alice book, the award-winning illustrator Robert Ingpen has illustrated its enchanting sequel in this sumptuous volume. Full of anarchic humour, witty rhymes and sparkling word play, it will delight new readers and devoted Alice fans alike.

    With its enticing and colourful design and its fascinating information, this is a book that children will want to pore over—either at home, in the classroom or on a road trip.

    This book brings together 55 national parks, selected across all Australian states and territories, and over 120 animals. It is divided into seven sections according to habitat (woodlands and grasslands; forests; rainforests; arid zones; mountains; wetlands and waterways; coasts, oceans and islands), each including a number of national parks and a selection of the fish, reptiles, frogs, birds and mammals that inhabit them. At the end of the book is a section on ‘little critters’—beetles, spiders, butterflies, grasshoppers, bugs and so on.

    Each habitat section opens with photographs of the featured national parks and a description of the habitat. Each animal has its own page, which has a stunning colour photograph of the species, a map of its distribution range, its conservation status and scientific information about the species. The information is divided into the following sections: ‘Fast Facts’ gives you all the vital statistics, such as size, lifespan and number of young; ‘Where Does It Live?’ tells you where in Australia you can find the species and provides details about its home; ‘What’s Its Life Like?’ tells you a bit about how the animal moves, behaves, eats and has young; and ‘Interesting Info’ has quirky and fascinating facts.
