            Why does each koala in a zoo need 1000 trees? How do you check a Tree-kangaroo's pouch for joeys? Why is a wombat's poo square-shaped? And how do dogs help look after 'extinct' bandicoots? Discover all this and more, as we take you behind the scenes of a modern Australian zoo and... animal hospital. Find out what it's really like to be a zookeeper and hear their funny and fascinating stories about the animals they look after - from the koala who regularly escapes her cage, to cheeky Tasmanian devil cubs nipping the keepers' ankles for food; and from Jess, the majestic wedge-tailed eagle, to tiny but precious frogs and skinks. These delightful and fascinating stories for children aged 9 to 12 reveal the essential role of zoos today, from preserving and rehabilitating endangered species to making groundbreaking scientific discoveries and uncovering more about how animals think. Packed full of fascinating facts, Ninja Bandicoots and Turbo-Charged Wombats is the perfect read for animal-loving kids.

            Leading New Zealand photographer Rob Suisted delivers a magnificent portrait of New Zealand's national parks. Within these treasured parks is diverse wildlife and stunning scenery representing all kinds of unique landscapes from golden sands to snowy mountains, rainforests and ru...gged coastlines. With five of the parks sitting in World Heritage Areas, this is a celebration of scenic Aotearoa at its best. All fourteen of New Zealand's national parks are represented through Rob's vibrant photographs - from Tongariro, New Zealand's first national park, to Rakiura in the deep south, the country's newest park - he captures the essence of the parks showcasing native birdlife, flora and fauna and the many opportunities for activities such as kayaking, walking and skiing. This vibrant pictorial celebrates the beauty of these areas and Alison Dench emphasises the great pride and spiritual connection New Zealanders hold for their land with an introduction to each park.
