              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.

              Much has been written about explorer Ernest Shackleton's three courageous expeditions to the Antarctic. What is not so well-known is the crucial role that Captain Frank Worsley played in saving the lives of the crew of Endurance after it got stuck in ice floes and broke apart dur...ing the attempt to traverse the Continent in 1914. After abandoning their ship, in the Weddell Sea, Frank led marches across the ice in the hope of reaching land. When their ice flow split, endangering all their lives, the survivors boarded three small lifeboats. Frank navigated them to Elephant Island during a terrific storm. When they found the island uninhabited, Frank led a six-man rescue party 1300 kilometres overland to a whaling station in South Georgia. Without his precise navigation skills and incredible determination, the rescue party would never have made it. One day after reaching the whaling station, he set out again to go back and rescue the other members of the lifeboat party.

              For the first time the true story of New Zealand's first successful aeroplane flights and the people behind them. Extensive research provides new understanding of historic events and corrects more than a hundred years of history with a startling account of what really happened in... 1911 and how Manurewa, the first aeroplane to fly, became 'lost'. Considered New Zealand's 'Wright brothers', Leo and Vivian Walsh were part of a small group of remarkable men and women pioneering motorised transport in the 1900's. The First is the compelling story of a generation including well-known Edwardians, George Henning, Reuben Dexter and the missing early years of international Art Deco designer, Keith Murray. The author does not neglect the careers of the Walsh sisters Veronica and Doreen with their connections to women aviators Jean Batten and Gladys Henning- Sandford, radio pioneer Aunt Daisy and Evelyn Purchas, likely the first New Zealand woman on active service to lose her life in World War One. The First addresses tobacco cultivation and manufacturing in the 1870s, the Victorian bicycle craze, the first motorcars, the Glenora Park flights and the upheaval of war then its aftermath when aeroplane flight would be experienced by ordinary New Zealanders. Terry Moyle's dedication to identifying and dating historic photographs and searching for never before seen images complement an authoritative text. As with his previous titles, Art Deco Airports and Art Deco New Zealand, masterly illustration and amazing maps by designers Contour Creative Studio instill the spirit of the age in this important history book.

Each of the 12 species covered - Morepork, Kaka, Sacred Kingfisher, Grey Warbler, Silvereye, Bellbird, Tui, Fantail, Chaffinch, Song Thrush, Blackbird and Starling - has a short description explaining some fascinating facts about that bird. Then the reader can press the relevant button on the panel on the side of the book and a short burst of the bird's song will be played via the accompanying speaker. The book is aimed in particular at children, but is great fun for all the family and perfect for helping to foster an interest in the amazing wildlife that lives right alongside us in our homes. It's ideal for keeping on the windowsill overlooking the backyard. The species covered have been specially selected as ones that will occur in and around most backyards in the country, however big or small. If you need a reminder of the twittering and fluty song of the Tui, or the Chaffinch's cascade of notes, it is simply a case of pushing the button. All in all this is a perfect title for anyone, young or old, who enjoys the natural world and listening to the songs and calls of our familiar backyard birds.

An evocative reminiscence of a way of life that has largely disappeared, it captures the stories of Kiwis who have a strong connection to... the environment and who have carved out unique lifestyles showing a resilience of character that is marked by wry humour and a pioneering spirit. Both North and South Island stories provide a good geographical mix. Locations include: Hawkes Bay, Marlborough, Tararua Ranges and Waiuta"--http://nz.newhollandpublishers.com.
