              This is a lovely rhyming story that is a sequel to 'The Dog and the Mog', and tells more tales about Davey the Dog, Mavis the Mog and Bruce their owner. Camping is a quintessential way of holidaying everywhere, and many will be able to relate to some of the challenges that can ar...ise, especially with the weather! Davey the Dog and Mavis the Mog are going camping at the beach with Bruce and the family in the summer holidays. They plan on having heaps of fun and need to take lots of things to play with so there is plenty to do when they get there. Everything is packed in the car, they get to the beach and set up the camp. After tea and a walk, everyone piles into bed and off they go to sleep. But while they are sleeping it starts to teem with rain and when Bruce's dad gets up to go out to the loo, his feet hit water to discover they are flooded - it's true! So they have to clear the water and sit tight until morning. When they get up it is sunny and warm and they dry everything out that got wet. Even the flood, although frightening, does not stop them thinking that going camping is still the BEST holiday.

              Taranto to Trieste is an account of the author's fascinating journey to retrace the actual path of the 2nd New Zealand Division in Italy from its arrival in October 1943 until the end of the European war. Although a personal journey with personal reflections, the real story is ab...out the largely off-the-beaten track places which the troops passed through, what they saw and experienced along the way and, in some cases what they missed. To complement the Division's story, the historical context and military actions are explained with many maps as well as war-time photographs and colourful quotations from official military histories. As the author says, "There are many people of the post-war generation, and their children, with direct connections to the Italian campaign, who would like to know more about the small, mysterious places the Division passed through which appear in diaries, letters and on the back of photographs, but many of which do not appear on maps." The author's own photographs, descriptions of the places visited, the landscapes travelled and the roads followed will delight those wanting to follow in the footsteps of the 2nd Division in Italy.

              Starch Work Done by Experts: Chinese Laundries in Aotearoa New Zealand (Paperback)

              Chinese laundries first opened in the 1880s and were an integral part of New Zealand's social fabric until at least the 1950s. How did they develop in towns from Southland to the far north before slowly disappearing after the 1940s? Who ran them and how did they fit into their co...mmunities? Starch Work by Experts: Chinese Laundries in Aotearoa New Zealand tells the story of the laundrymen, their families and customers. Hand laundries were one of four main occupations for early Chinese settlers, along with mining, market gardening and storekeeping. They provided a low-cost stepping stone to a new life through hard work, skill and long hours. This book counters the stereotype of Chinese laundry work as menial and unskilled. While Chinese laundries were humble establishments, Chinese laundrymen (and women) were experts in starching, particularly men's shirts and detachable collars. Blending documentary research, personal stories and fascinating images, Starch Work by Experts goes beyond the grille to step inside the world of steaming coppers, hissing irons and perfectly starched collars.
