I loved reading this book. The storyline revolves around Ginny, who is a rising star when tragedy strikes her life. She is about to jump off a bridge when she sees Blue – an abandoned boy who needs someone to care about him. How she handles her life going forward and the people that pull her back to reality are the basis of the story.

This is a must read book for any budding Kiwi craft brewer. Well written, and well presented, the book details how to get started, from extract brewing, through to various all grain techniques, fermenting, bottling/kegging, etc. And of course: the sampling, and possible fault finding, an essential step for improving the next batch!
Originally published in 1955, this is a 60th anniversary edition of a celebrated NZ picture book in the bestselling series by Avis Acres. By re-releasing the title, the story is being brought to a new generation of kiwi children.
The Best of Alison Holst was first published in 1991. There is now a 2015 version of her famous “Big Red Book”. It contains vegetarian recipes, microwave recipes, meal plans, some traditional recipes (for example, banana cake or herbed tripe) and some newer ideas (hummus, tofu-fruit whip).
A quirky picture book about a child and an elephant playing hide and seek.
This book has simple black and white drawings, with a short paragraph with information about each one. Most are vehicles, but there are some that aren’t, like a chainsaw, umbrella and gramophone. Each page has perforations so it can be removed from the book.
This is a wordless picture book, about a girl who finds a pencil line which becomes all sorts of things.
I haven’t read Amelia Freer’s first book, Eat. Nourish. Glow. However, apparently due to demand for recipes to accompany her first book, she has written this companion cook book – helping readers to cook themselves healthy. All about adapting eating habits to be healthier despite busy lifestyles, Amelia has written 120 recipes without sugar, mostly without refined carbs and with a lot of veges.
Sir Scallywag is asked by the king to retrieve the golden sausage that will make the king live for ever. Of course, there’s an interesting twist!
