              Award-winning David Hill's exciting WW2 novel for tweens and teens inspired by the coastwatchers of Operation Pacific. 'It's not going to be a cushy job, young Benson. You're on your own. If a snake takes a mouthful of you, there's no medics to help. Japs will be looking for you.... Far as they're concerned, you're spies. And when a spy gets captured, remember . . .' It's 1943 and 19-year-old radio operator Frank Benson is shipped out to the Japanese-occupied Solomon Islands to become a coastwatcher. Equipped with a wireless set and two companions, radio assistant Wally and Les, a gruff but experienced soldier, his mission is to keep tabs on the enemy and transmit coded information back to HQ. In the dense jungle the men meet a young Solomon Islander. A'ata says he has something vital to show them. Frank's instincts are to trust him, but Les disagrees. What if it's a trap to deliver them to the Japanese? No training could have prepared Frank for this - and their survival depends on his next decision.

              A fierce, spiky girl and a lonely troll form an unlikely alliance in Leonie Agnew's extraordinary novel for children aged 9 years and up. For as long as Seth can remember, he's been trapped behind the iron bars of the public gardens, desperate to explore the world outside. By day..., he's encased in a skin of stone and frozen on the riverbank as a statue of a shepherd boy. As soon has the sun has set he's free to roam the park, ravenously hungry. He is a troll, and the food he seeks is human memories. He's a monster yet, somehow, he's yearning for something more than an endless cycle of hunting and loneliness. Then he meets Stella, who has just moved to live with her grandfather in a house neighbouring the park. Her mind is sharp and quick and there's something so different about her - she's the only human Seth has met whose memories make his insides burn. He doesn't want to feed off her. He simply wants to talk to her. Maybe she can help him find another way to live? Engrossing, spine-chillingly scary and wholly original, this is a novel that grabs the reader and holds them spellbound. What terrible memory is Stella trying to escape? What are the fragments of memory that Seth is trying to put together? And is there any possibility that Seth could escape the lonely garden and start truly living?

              This is a traditional story told in te reo Maori from the perspective of the Kahui Maunga people about Ngake and Whataitai. These two taniwha inhabited Te Whanganui-a-Tara, Wellington Harbour, long before the ancestral migrations. The story tells how the shape and landscape... of Wellington, its harbour and the Lower Hutt area came about because of the actions of Ngake and Whataitai. Long ago, Te Whanganui a Tara was an enclosed lake, but Ngake forced his way out into the sea by battering through the clenched teeth of the fish of Maui to allow the fish to breathe. Whataitai was washed down the throat of the fish, causing it to cough, and Whataitai and three morsels flew out. The morsels became islands in the harbour, but Whataitai was stranded and grew weak and died, becoming part of the land around the harbour
