              "Antarctica is a fascinating place. It is beautiful, cold, remote, and difficult to get to, which means everyone who goes there - today or in the past - has a special reason for wanting to go. Antarctica Journeys is about the journeys - historical and contemporary, human and anim...al, large and small - that build up an overall picture of Antarctic history, geography, science and wildlife. Photographs, maps and paintings, letters, diaries, newspaper and eye-witness reports from the days of early exploration, as well as later research and interviews, paint a vivid picture of an amazing continent"--Back cover.

              At the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month each year New Zealanders remember the end of the First World War. Armistice Day, Philippa Werry's new book for children, commemorates the day when fighting stopped in Europe. Partnered with best-selling Anzac Day,... it makes an excellent reference for the whole family. Kiwi soldiers returned home to a terrible influenza epidemic, as the population grieved for the loss of life. Memorials were erected and families sought to return to the battlefields overseas to visit graves of their loved ones. Well researched and drawing on illustration, photographs and text from various sources, this is a gripping, moving description of the aftermath of war in Europe, giving children a clear understanding of the establishment of the United Nations and New Zealand's role in international peacekeeping.
