Then, as Quentaris slips quietly through a vortex into the watery world of the Ya...rka, Tab Vidler and her friends suddenly realise they are the city's only hope. Plots, intrigue, magic, mystery, high adventure and more - everything that you've come to expect from the Quentaris series.

              Hunting Elephants (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Roy, James

              Sometimes, when you search for the truth, you find you're just . . . Hunting Elephants. Harry reads books, he asks questions; he's a naturally curious young man. So when he and his parents head out to the country for Great-uncle Frank's fourth wedding, he prepares himself. He lea...rns what he can before they leave. After all, he doesn't want to look stupid when Frank's time in the Vietnam War comes up in conversation. If it comes up. But perhaps Harry has more to worry about than an old man's war stories. Is there a crazed gunman in the bush? And what's being kept hidden in the old caravan behind Frank's house? Besides, Harry has scars and memories and guilt of his own to deal with, which won't be easy while ever he's surrounded by truths that sound like lies, and lies that might just be true. Like Captain Mack and Billy Mack's War, this novel bravely takes the young reader into the real world, where the assumptions we make can sometimes be dead wrong, and where the things we refuse to talk about might be bigger than we ever imagined.

              Stuff Happens: Lennie: Lennie (EPUB ebook)

              By Roy, James

              Stuff Happens is an important new series for boys about everyday challenges. Created by Susannah McFarlane, the series editor, the series is written by established authors Tony Wilson, Andrew Daddo, Philip Gwynne, Will Kostakis, Oliver Phommavanh, Scot Gardner, Justin D'Ath, Jame...s Roy, Pat Flynn and Alex McDiarmid. Each book features a different character and follows them as they overcome a particular everyday challenge. It explores those everyday struggles in life that boys can sometimes be reluctant to express: quarrels with mates, a bad day at school, fear of disappointing mum and dad, rejection and not fitting in. Stuff Happens. Real-life stories for boys. Suitable for beginner and newly confident readers. Stuff happens sometimes. Everyday stuff. At school, at home, with sport, with mates. For Lennie it happened when he argued with a teacher. Lennie loves facts, and he loves nothing more than letting everyone know about it. But when a relief teacher questions one of his facts about the moon landing, he is not happy. Lennie realises that no one can be right all of the time, and that's okay - no one is perfect. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMHA_hUJXy4 http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/special-features/books-for-boys-series-stuff-happens-helps-show-boys-how-to-deal-with-their-emotions/story-fni3wj64-1227246165147 http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/booksandartsdaily/stuff-happens3a-books-for-boys/5649918 Praise for Stuff Happens 'Stories about boys, aimed at boys and containing real-life stories of their school and home life are rare.
