              Everyone is part of History, and every place has a story as old as the earth.My Place, the classic Australian picture book, is a 'time machine' which takes the reader back into the past. It depicts the history of one particular piece of land in Sydney from 1788 to 1988 through th...e stories of the various children who have lived there. It aims to teach the reader about the history of Australia, about families, settlers, multiculturalism, and the traditional owners of the land. Each child's story covers a decade in time, showing their particular dress, customs and family life. The book also features maps that the successive generations of children have 'drawn' which demonstrate the things that have changed - as well as the things that have remained constant.

              It's 1981 and Evie is sixteen. She has left school but can't find work, and her family has just moved into the run-down inner Sydney suburb of Newtown. Noel lives in the adjoining terrace house. He's fifteen, not taking school seriously and fed up with looking after his ancient b...ed-ridden grandmother. As a friendship grows between Evie and Noel, the past is set back in motion, and the events of the 1930s Depression era begin to play out in the high-unemployment times of the early 1980s, and the house again is the centre of the Sydney anti-eviction campaign of 1931. Based on historical fact, meticulously researched, The House that was Eureka is a critically acclaimed novel about a history we all share.

              Tonight is the night. The family has to flee. They've been tipped off that the authorities are after their blood. Set in biblical times, a small family sets off across a desert in search of refuge from persecution in their own country, and an ancient story becomes a fable for our... times. Their journey is beset by heat and thirst, threatening tanks and the loss of their donkey, but eventually they reach a refugee camp where they can wait in safety for asylum in another country. In this first-time collaboration between multi-award-winning author, Nadia Wheatley, and internationally-renowned illustrator, Armin Greder, words and images blend seamlessly to take readers on a journey they will never forget. AUTHOR: Nadia Wheatley lives in Sydney. In a literary career spanning three decades, she has written numerous award-winning picture books, novels, and works of history for children and adults. These include the classic picture book 'My Place', illustrated by Donna Rawlins, and the historical novel 'The House that was Eureka'. The 'Papunya School Book of Country and History' was the result of a five-year collaboration with Aboriginal students and staff at Papunya School (Northern Territory). In 2013 Nadia was nominated by IBBY Australia for the Hans Christian Andersen Award for Writing. ILLUSTRATOR: Armin Greder was born in Switzerland. In 1971 he migrated to Australia where he worked as a graphic designer and later taught design and illustration at a tertiary art institution. Picture books he has illustrated include 'The Great Bear', 'An Ordinary Day' and 'I Am Thomas'; and he has written and illustrated 'The Island' and 'The City'. He is the recipient of a number of international recognitions such as the Bologna Ragazzi Award, and he has been nominated for the Hans Christian Andersen Award. He now lives in Lima, Peru.

              Born in Australia in 1949, author Nadia Wheatley grew up with a sense of the mystery of her parents' marriage. Caught in the crossfire between an independent woman and a controlling man, the child became a player in the deadly game. Was she her mother's daughter, or her father's ...creature? After her mother's death, the ten-year-old began writing down the stories her mother had told her-of a Cinderella-like childhood, followed by an escape into a career as an army nurse in Palestine and Greece, and as an aid-worker in the refugee camps of post-war Germany. Some fifty years later, the finished memoir is not only a loving tribute but an investigation of the bewildering processes of memory itself.
