              The collie dog slipped silently through the starlit night. She could smell sheep in the valley, hundreds of them. She knew what she had to do, and she had to do it quickly and quietly. This is the tale of New Zealands most notorious sheep-stealer and his loyal working dog. More t...han 160 years ago, James Mackenzie and his black-and-white collie, Friday, secretly herded 1,000 stolen sheep through rugged, unmapped mountain passes. A statue of the pair stands today in the heart of Mackenzie Country in the South Island.

              In the year 2040 there was a global disaster. As predicted by the scientists, the Great Floods arrived, destroying half of both the human and animal kingdoms. As a result, both kingdoms realised they had to work together to save the planet and ensure we live peacefully alongside ...each other. The King of the Animals, the Lion Caesar, had an idea. He granted an elite class of New Zealand children some special powers borrowed from animals all over the world. It was hoped that with these powers they could protect us all from further environmental disasters.Despite the efforts of teacher Mr Thorn trying to keep the class's attention during a geography field trip, the ever alert Elliot Eagle spots a boat in trouble. It soon dawns upon Class 11 though that this is not just any ordinary boat but a huge tanker carrying tonnes of oil.This story covers their daring missions to try and stop the oil tanker as it drifts out of control towards the jagged rocks. Will their special powers be enough to stop the disaster?

              Fourth-grader Ariel's weekend is turning out to be a disaster. Her friends are coming over for a sleepover on Saturday night and a movie on Sunday, but she can't get it together to write her homework essay about heritage and cultural traditions that is due on Monday. Her two best... friends know everything about their cultures, but Ariel knows nothing about her own. As she reflects on the maze of changes surrounding her after her parents' divorce and her mother's remarriage, she reminisces about her early years in Colombia, her summers spent in Hawaii and the Pacific Northwest, and her current life in the Monterey Bay beach town where she now lives with her mom and her new dad. From her Caribbean grandma's patacones to her Pacific Northwest grandma's blackberry pie, Ariel discovers that food keeps emerging as a theme in her life. It's a theme that helps her gain a stronger sense of self, and one that just might save her before the Monday morning deadline.

On Dec...ember 7, 1941, the Japanese launched a completely unpredictable attack on the U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Right? Well, that's not quite the real deal. Some military experts had suggested that Pearl Harbor was a likely target. There were other warning signs, too, but nobody paid much attention. From the first wave of the Japanese bombers to the United States' internment of thousands of Japanese Americans, acclaimed author Kate Messner smashes history by exploring the little-known truths behind the story of Pearl Harbor and its aftermath.
