    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.

    The new Australian go-to book for parents wanting help with THAT talk ...

    For the last forty years, Peter Mayle's WHERE DID I COME FROM? has been the go-to book for parents seeking help with the birds and the bees talk.

    In 2015, Australian cartoonist Fiona Katauskas will publish a thoroughly modern book on this timeless subject.

    THE AMAZING TRUE STORY OF HOW BABIES ARE MADE is Fiona's brilliant response to finding herself reading the same sex-ed book to her son as her mother had read to her. That book is, of course, Peter Mayle's 1973 bestseller, a classic picture book that has helped millions of parents and teachers around the world navigate those tricky questions about how babies are made.

    Fiona's book captures all the elements that made WHERE DID I COME FROM? such a success: it's funny, it's warm, it's straightforward and it's the perfect helping hand for carers. But things have changed since the seventies, and Fiona's book is exactly what modern parents have been waiting for!

    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    From Ampersand Prize-winning author Erin Gough comes this ferociously funny romp through an elite private school, and a brilliant feminist hoax that could change – or ruin – everything.

    Harriet Price has the perfect life: she’s a prefect at Rosemead Grammar, she lives in a mansion, and her gorgeous girlfriend is a future prime minister. So when she decides to risk it all by helping bad-girl Will Everhart expose the school’s many ongoing issues, Harriet tells herself it’s because she too is seeking justice. And definitely not because she finds Will oddly fascinating.

    Will Everhart can’t stand posh people like Harriet, but even she has to admit Harriet's ideas are good – and they’ll keep Will from being expelled. That’s why she teams up with Harriet to create Amelia Westlake, a fake student who can take the credit for a series of provocative pranks at their school.

    But the further Will and Harriet’s hoax goes, the harder it is for the girls to remember they’re sworn enemies – and to keep Amelia Westlake’s true identity hidden. As tensions burn throughout the school, how far will they go to keep Amelia Westlake – and their feelings for each other – a secret?

    Perfect for fans of David Levithan and Becky Albertalli, this triumphant queer YA rom-com explores politics, privilege and power, and has a gloriously uplifting teen romance at its heart.
