              A te reo Maori board book that shares how to talk about feelings through a friendship between a child and their dog. Through the up-close expressive faces of a child and their dog, we learn the Maori words for a range of feelings. Taku kuri pai - my good dog. He hatakehi ia. My d...og is happy ... angry ... excited ... sad ... shy ... hopeful ... Taku hoa pumau, my faithful friend. This simple board book is a starting point to talk about how we feel. Key words describe the many emotions a dog can go through in a short time, while the expressions on the faces of the people nearby convey a whole new raft of feelings as they respond and react. And so the story becomes one of friendship and how our friends make us feel. This new board book is a multi-layered delight joining Mihi and Koro in Gavin Bishop's powerful series to share with the smallest children.

              A private investigator returning to the hometown he fled years ago becomes entangled in the disappearance of two teenage girls in this stunning literary crime thriller. Reid left the small town of Manson a decade ago, promising his former Chief of Police boss he'd never return. H...e made a new life in the city, became a PI and turned his back on his old life for good. Now an insurance firm has offered him good money to look into a suspicious car crash, and he finds himself back in the place he grew up - home to his complicated family history, a scarring relationship breakdown and a very public career-ending incident. As Reid's investigation unfolds, nothing is as it seems: rumours are swirling about the well-liked young woman who was driving the car which killed her professor husband, while a second local student has just disappeared. As Reid veers off course from the job he has been paid to do, will he find himself in the dangerous position of taking on the town again?

              A delightful illustrated novel for children about a goat and a hedgehog who meet in a farm field and become best friends. Goat has a tiny pink shed in a rolling paddock. She likes to stand on top of the little shed and dream of meeting other goats in other paddocks. Sometimes she... looks at the sky and imagines the clouds are her friends, especially when they look like goats bouncing and bounding in their sky paddocks. Most of the time Goat is lonely. She wishes the family in the pink house at the top of the hill would find another goat for the paddock. A best friend goat. One day, while Goat is looking at the sky and dreaming of having a best friend, she hears a strange squeaky sound coming from a ball of prickles. Goat realises it's a hedgehog, and that the strange squeaky noise is crying. This is the beginning of a most unexpected friendship, which somehow works even though Goat is a creature of the day and Hedgehog prefers the night. Life in the paddock is never boring now they can watch the clouds together, and from time to time they are joined by visitors. Even though the two characters never leave their paddock, excitement always has a way of finding them. Chock-full of philosophy and rural charm, Little Tales of Hedgehog and Goat is made magical by Paula Green's prose and Kimberly Andrews' lively illustrations. It's a perfect bedtime chapter book to be enjoyed by child and adult, and all fans of Winnie the Pooh, the Wind in the Willows and Snake and Lizard.
