              "The story of how James Cook charted Aotearoa New Zealand, lavishly produced and richly illustrated. Since it was published by the Admiralty in 1816, James Cook's chart of New Zealand has long been regarded as one of the most extraordinary achievements in the history of cartograp...hy. First Map: How James Cook Charted Aotearoa New Zealand tells the human story behind the creation of Cook's famous chart, following the progress of his six-month circumnavigation of New Zealand and piecing the map together as the narrative on H.M.B.

Scenes from Tessa Duder's evocative text are beautifully recreated by award-winning illustrator David Elliot in this exquisite large format edition. Published to coincide with the Tuia - Encounters 250 commemoration of James Cook's 1769-70 journey around New Zealand"--Publisher information.

              Liminal: from the Latin word limen, meaning threshold - any point or place of entering or beginning. A liminal space is the time between the 'what was' and the 'next.' It is a place of transition, waiting, and not knowing. The 18th in the celebrated Re-Draft series presents 70... great young writers of Aotearoa New Zealand on the threshold of becoming greater. This dynamic collection of stories, poems and other pieces dares to explore all manner of possible and impossible spaces. Often moving and painfully honest, often laugh-aloud funny, often mysterious but always compellingly original, these stories and poems will linger and reward re-reading. More than a snapshot of the ideas and issues exercising our next generation of writers, SERVICE STATIONS AND OTHER LIMINAL SPACES is a grand tour. Enter its threshold. It will take you to places you've never been before.

              A literary portrait of New Zealand's best-loved children's author Margaret Mahy's death on 23 July 2012 brought forth an unprecedented outpouring of grief and heartfelt tributes from around New Zealand and the world. Her passing at 76 was breaking news in the media, unstoppable t...hrough the social networks, noted by political leaders in Parliament and by children in classrooms throughout the country. Celebrated as a member of the Order of New Zealand (the country's highest civil honour), twice honorary Doctor of Letters and twice winner of Britain's Carnegie Medal for children's literature, Margaret was one of the world's leading authors for younger readers for four decades. In her own country she was popularly known as the writer in the multicoloured wig who wrote marvellously funny picture books and enchanted generations of school children. But internationally, she was primarily recognised for her ground-breaking young adult novels; anyone who heard her speak knew that she was also a brilliant essayist, an expert on children's literature, a scholar and philosopher. For many fellow writers, teachers and librarians she was a treasured friend, supportive, generous and wonderful company. For children, she was the storyteller supreme, warm, full of wonder, magic and mischief - and on their side. Her story had its fairy-tale elements. In 1968, a hard-pressed solo mother of two daughters, working as a librarian by day and writing long into the night, she was 'discovered' by a leading American publisher who flew 'to the end of the earth' to offer her a multi-book publishing contract.
