              From Moa to Dinosaurs, the fifth title in the acclaimed 'explore & discover' series for children, looks back in time to reveal what lived in ancient New Zealand. The book begins with a glimpse of the animals that lived in New Zealand just before people arrived. It then goes back ...in time, providing snapshots of particular periods, as far back as 180 million years ago. The range of animals covered in this book is remarkable: moa and other extraordinary birds that are now extinct; crocodilians and turtles; the shark-toothed dolphin and giant penguins; dinosaurs such as sauropods and theropods; as well as those resilient survivors who can still be found in New Zealand today, such as kiwi, native bats, giant weta and tuatara. Beautifully illustrated and impeccably researched, this is a wonderful and intriguing way for children to learn something about the origins of New Zealand.

              The sixth title in the award-winning `explore & discover' series, Up the River: Explore & discover New Zealand's rivers, lakes and wetlands gives children an opportunity to look under the surface and see what special creatures live, around New Zealand's freshwater habitats - our ...creeks, rivers, lakes and wetlands. Included in this title are animals ranging from the familiar p-u?keko to the rarely seen bittern, from the iconic eel to tiny whitebait, and some of the many barely known aquatic insects. Swimmable and drinkable fresh water are hot topics, and Up the River shows that many native animals depend on healthy waterways for a habitat, and their presence is often used as a sign of the water's health. Beautifully illustrated and impeccably researched, this is a wonderful and intriguing way for children to learn about New Zealand's freshwater environments. Previous `explore & discover' titles have: won the Elsie Locke Medal for non-fiction (2013), received Storylines awards (2014, 2015) and been finalists in the NZ Children's Book Awards (2013, 2015).

              The Little Things: Cartoons to Save Your Sanity
                

              The Little Things: Cartoons to Save Your Sanity (Paperback)

              By Lawrey, Matt; Illustrated by Lole, Peter

              The Little Things is a cartoon created by parents for parents, which sympathises, commiserates and celebrates with mums and dads everywhere. Launched in 2010 The Little Things is the most successful new cartoon to have come out of New Zealand in many years, and despite slashed bu...dgets and shrinking readerships it has been picked up by a range of newspapers in New Zealand, Australia and the UK. Matt Lawrey came up with the idea for the cartoon one day while drinking beer and watching his two sons do the mad sorts of things little kids do. An exhaustive search of artists led him to Peter Lole, a highly experienced professional illustrator, who importantly has three children of his own. Parenting is one of life's most universal experiences, and there is a huge appetite for these beautifully realized cartoons, which make people laugh, smile, and ultimately celebrate the upside-down world of children and families.
