              Award-winning David Hill's exciting WW2 novel for tweens and teens inspired by the coastwatchers of Operation Pacific. 'It's not going to be a cushy job, young Benson. You're on your own. If a snake takes a mouthful of you, there's no medics to help. Japs will be looking for you.... Far as they're concerned, you're spies. And when a spy gets captured, remember . . .' It's 1943 and 19-year-old radio operator Frank Benson is shipped out to the Japanese-occupied Solomon Islands to become a coastwatcher. Equipped with a wireless set and two companions, radio assistant Wally and Les, a gruff but experienced soldier, his mission is to keep tabs on the enemy and transmit coded information back to HQ. In the dense jungle the men meet a young Solomon Islander. A'ata says he has something vital to show them. Frank's instincts are to trust him, but Les disagrees. What if it's a trap to deliver them to the Japanese? No training could have prepared Frank for this - and their survival depends on his next decision.

              In 1998, just as South Island iwi Ngai Tahu was about to sign its Treaty of Waitangi settlement with the government - justice of sorts after seven generations of seeking redress - a former foundryman stepped into the pivotal role of kaiwhakahaere or chair of Te Runanga o Ngai T...ahu - the tribal council of Ngai Tahu. Mark Solomon stood at the head of his iwi at a critical moment and can be credited with the astute stewardship of the settlement that has today made Ngai Tahu a major player in the economy and given it long sought-after self determination. Bold, energetic and visionary, for 18 years Solomon forged a courageous and determined course. Now, in this direct memoir, Ta Mark reflects on his life, on the people who influenced him, on what it means to lead, and the future for both Ngai Tahu and Aotearoa New Zealand.

              Most of Aotearoa's amazing arachnids - which include spiders, ticks, mites and pseudoscorpions - are as unique to New Zealand as kiwi and tuatara. Some are so weird and wonderful that they could star in sci fi movies, but despite that we know very little about them. In this com...panion volume to Why is that lake so blue?, arachnid experts Simon Pollard and Phil Sirvid take us on an amazing journey of arachnid discovery.
