              The boy from upstairs plays in the yard. His name is Matata. I call him Mate for short. When I see him I shout, 'Hello Mate!', but he doesn't join in my games. When Mate moves in upstairs, he has an instant friend. But Mate is shy and learning to adapt to a new home. There's a ne...w family downstairs too. A secret family. Where have the families come from and what happens when the downstairs family goes missing? Where will their silver treasures lead? A celebration of the power of friendship in the face of displacement and loneliness. AUTHOR: Jennifer Loakes is a Brisbane-based writer and Mate and Me is her first picture book. Jennifer is the Principal Policy Officer at Arts Queensland and is responsible for policy development and public performance reporting.

The boys are drawn together by a local family of birds. ILLUSTRATOR: Belinda Elliott grew up on Sydney's north shore, spending many hours drawing and painting its bushland.
