              A young boy learns about the customs around celebrating Matariki from his grandfather. They watch the stars from the top of a mountain, prepare their offering of food for the gods, and the boy learns about Te Waka o Rangi and the tradition of calling out the names of loved ones w...ho have passed away so that they can become stars. Just before Matariki the following year, the boy's Koro suddenly dies. He gathers and prepares the food offering and asks each family member to come with him up the mountain when Matariki is due to rise, but they all make excuses, and he is disheartened. But when he tells them what Koro taught him, they all climb the mountain before sunrise, follow the rituals Koro carried out and call out Koro's name so that he can become a star.

              Viking is the pony of Amanda's dreams, but does she have what it takes to win? An exciting middle-grade novel about the thrills and challenges of competitive showjumping, from the bestselling author of Showtym Adventures. Seventeen-year-old Amanda Wilson is in her final year of h...igh school, and has reached a crossroads. Her secret ambition is to make horses her future, but she isn't sure she has what it takes. She's not as forthright and fearless as her eldest sister, Vicki, a champion showjumper and professional horsewoman, and she has no desire to move to the city and study for a career like her arty and glamorous sister Kelly. Then Vicki throws down an irresistible challenge in the form of a young pinto gelding. Viking's potential is huge, if Amanda is prepared to step up and invest in him. As Amanda and Viking learn what they are capable of together and ride their way up the leaderboard towards the Pony of the Year competition, Amanda begins to realise that the one real obstacle to achieving all her dreams is her ability to believe in herself. But will she master her mental game in time for the test of her life? A thrilling new novel from the Wilson sisters inspired by real events and perfect for readers 10 years and older.

              'The SUV advanced, without slowing as it passed; the driver probably didn't even register him. Roland watched until it reached the canal crossing, where the curve of the hill and the trees swallowed it up. And then he was alone with his frosted breathing, the mist, another breath..., a sob.' Having returned to the Mackenzie Country to deal with the unexpected death of his brother, Roland has more than enough on his plate. He could do without the demands of a cantankerous neighbour, the complaints of his partner back in Australia and discovering that someone is impersonating him online, stirring up the locals against him. Even the weather is hostile, rendering roads unpassable and his old home an icebox, the fire offering little comfort. And yet, when cycling on the empty roads, cocooned in a snow-muffled landscape, he finds he can confront what he actually feels. A vivid novel about familial love, friendship and how our lives touch, connect and impact upon one another.
