              The stories of these fascinating creatures - birds, insects, reptiles and plants - are told in an entertaining and accessible style, drawing on first-hand accounts and supported with useful illustrations. It draws on accounts of their demise, and of the social climate in New Zeal...and in which these extinctions occurred. Illustrated with line drawings by Phoebe Morris, and written in a relatable style, this is perfect for 8-12 year olds, telling true stories about the species and the people involved in their extinction and/or recovery. Featured species include those which are long gone - New Zealand's dinosaurs, penguins and pelicans, and the giant gecko; extinctions since the human habitation of New Zealand, including the moa, piopio, huia and laughing owl, and native fish the grayling; species which were lost and found - the takahe, taiko, Tecomanthe speciosa and the weevils of Canterbury; and those at risk of extinction and how it came to this - kakapo, kaki, Maui's dolphin, kauri and whitebait.

              Twinkle, tickle, little star, of the salty sea. Near the rocks where mussels cling, is where I'm sure to be. A zillion feet adorn my arms; I don't have a head or teeth. My bottom's on the top of me; my mouth is where? Underneath. Anne Hunter's playful and delightful rhymes... along with Dave Gunson's superb illustrations, perfectly capture the unique characteristics of a range of creatures and plant life that young children commonly encounter when exploring the New Zealand seashore. Rhyming verse delightfully details some of the special features of triplefins, hermit crabs, scallops, jellyfish, sea anemonies, seaweed, black-backed gulls, paddle crabs, paua, katipo, sponges and starfish. This entertaining book is intended to be read aloud and children will be fascinated to learn more about the wild life on the seashore so they can enjoy exploring when visiting the beach. There is a fascinating facts section to supplement the verse at the back of the book.

              It was 1914 when Sister Alice Ross-King left Australia for the war. Nursing was her passion - all she had ever wanted to do. But Alice couldn't have imagined what she would see. She served four long years and was brave, humble and endlessly compassionate. Using extracts from Alic...e's actual diaries kept in the Australian War Memorial, this story captures the danger, the heartache and the history of the young nurse who would one day become the most decorated woman in Australia.
