    Welcome to the road trip of a lifetime - from the wildly inventive imagination of Caldecott medalist Dan Santat, creator of THE ADVENTURES OF BEEKLE: THE UNIMAGINARY FRIEND.

    We get it. Car rides can be boring. And when things get boring, time slows down. So much so that it might start going BACKWARD - into the time of pirates! Of princesses! Of dinosaurs!

    You were just trying to go to your grandmother's birthday party. But when time flies, who knows where - or WHEN - you'll end up.

    After reading this wildly inventive book - that even turns upside down! - you'll never look at being bored the same way again.

    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    The internationally acclaimed graphic novel THE ARRIVAL, and a new companion volume of commentary and developmental drawings, SKETCHES FROM A NAMELESS LAND.


    The Arrival is a migrant story told as a series of wordless images that might seem to come from a long forgotten time. A man leaves his wife and child in an impoverished town, seeking better prospects in an unknown country on the other side of a vast ocean. He eventually finds himself in a bewildering city of foreign customs, peculiar animals, curious floating objects and indecipherable languages. With nothing more than a suitcase and a handful of currency, the immigrant must find a place to live, food to eat and some kind of gainful employment. He is helped along the way by sympathetic strangers, each carrying their own unspoken history: stories of struggle and survival in a world of incomprehensible violence, upheaval and hope.


    In Sketches from a Nameless Land, author Shaun Tan explains the origins of his ideas, using examples from early research and concept sketches through to finished artwork. In tracing this evolution, he sheds light on the silent language of images, the spirit of the migrant experience and the artist s creative journey.

    A fabulously funny madcap adventure from the multi-talented actor, director and writer Richard Roxburgh, now writing and illustrating books for children.

    Artie and his best friend Bumshoe have stumbled upon a Cave-of-Possibly-Stolen-Stuff, and along with it a gang of shady characters including scary Mary, fang-toothed Funnel-web and the devious Mayor Grime.

    Meanwhile, Artie's next-door neighbour Gladys's beloved tortoise Gareth has gone missing... and Artie suspects the cave has something to do with it.

    Artie and Bumshoe's attempt to catch the criminals in the act leads to a chaotic chain of events that involves kidnapping, puppy-dog cutlets, modern art and pioneering the sport of the bungee-wedgie.

    It's a sticky situation and if Artie's going to escape he might need help from family, friends and a little old lady with a bizarre inventory of weapons - including the Fartex 120Y.

    Calling all curious kids! It’s time to pack your bags and embark on the journey of a lifetime. Created by the same team behind Atlas Obscura, the #1 New York Times bestseller that has over 600,000 copies in print in its first year, The Atlas Obscura Explorer’s Guide for the World’s Most Adventurous Kid is a thrillingly imaginative expedition to 100 of the world’s most mysterious and mesmerising places.

    The hottest place on earth, and the coldest. Lava lakes and the otherworldly Blood Falls of Antarctica. An underwater spaceship graveyard and a museum of dancing mummies. As compelling as the destinations is the way the book unfolds. Imagine the world’s most ingenious tour guide working with an unlimited budget, and this is the journey you’d take: hopscotching from country to country in a daisy chain of connecting attractions. For example, visit the site of a mysterious meteor crash in Siberia, then turn the page and learn about one in the Yucatán. While in Mexico, visit the fantastical crystal caves, and then turn the page to find yourself in another massive cave, this time in Vietnam.

    Illustrated in gorgeous and appropriately evocative full-spread watercolours, this book is a passport to a world of hidden possibilities.
