            'We're gonna starve if we stay here,' Emery said. 'If we're gonna go, best go now.' And he said it like going was something easy. Like all we have to do is walk away. Ella and her brother Emery are alone in a city that's starving to death. If they are going to survive, they must ...get away, upcountry, to find Emery's mum. But how can two kids travel such big distances across a dry, barren, and dangerous landscape? Well, when you've got five big doggos and a dry-land dogsled, the answer is you go mushing. But when Emery is injured, Ella must find a way to navigate them through rough terrain, and even rougher encounters with desperate people...

            A CHARMING AND WITTY TALE CHRONICLING AN UNUSUAL DAY IN THE LIFE OF A SHEEP DOG Every day Gus Dog goes to work in the back of the ute with his owner, Tom the shearer. But one morning Gus wakes up to find Tom and the ute gone. So Gus Dog decides to go to work on his own. Along the... way he stops to listen to everything, to smell everything, and to look at everything. He has some fun, gets up to some mischief, ruffles a few feathers, and learns a new word. Eventually he finds the ute - but, as in all good stories, that is not the end! Gus Dog Goes to Work is the warm and comical story of a not-so-usual day in the life of a sheep dog, by the top author-illustrator team of the bestselling series I Hate Fridays. PRAISE FOR GUS DOG: 'The repetition of some phrases throughout lends a sense of the 'readaloudability' of classics such as Hairy Maclary, but with an Australian tone.' - Books+Publishing 'Gus Dog has a comical appearance, to match the humour in the text, and a soft expression in his eyes that makes him very endearing. This simple story reflects on the power of language, while observing country life, pets, working dogs and animal behaviour.' - Buzz Words
