              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.

              Join Mittens, Wellington's pawsome celebrity cat, on his real-life adventures in this feline-fabulous picture book by Silvio Bruinsma and Phoebe Morris. Have you met Mittens? If not, it's only a matter of time. Mittens is the most famous cat ever to parade the streets of Wellingt...on with his noble nose and fabulously fluffy tail in the air. Mittens is on a mission to leave no corner of the CBD unexplored, no passerby unsmooched, no business, school or residence uninspected. He naps in shop windows, hails cars, crosses busy roads on the green light and, like any self-respecting cat, he lives for attention - but only when he's in the mood for it. The Turkish angora caught the the attention of the world when, just by being his inquisitive and charming self, his antics cheered up Wellingtonians during the 2020 lockdown. Wellington's mayor awarded Mittens a key to the city and HRF (His Royal Floofiness) was even nominated for New Zealander of the Year! Read all about Mittens' adventures around the capital city in this delightful rhyming story by Silvio Bruinsma, Mittens's guardian, with exuberant illustrations by the acclaimed illustrator and hippest of Wellingtonians, Phoebe Morris.
