              Oh no! The wolf is coming! He's a little scary--;maybe he wants to eat us! But here's an idea: if we hold the book on a slant, maybe the wolf will slip and fall... And if he holds onto a branch, maybe we can shake the book so he drops off... Or maybe it's enough to turn the page ...to make him disappear... Let's try! Bye-bye, wolf!

              'Wise, compassionate collection of personal essays that forms a nationally important chronicle of our social and political history.' NZ Listener 'Linda Burgess can make you laugh and break your heart, often in the same sentence. Clear-eyed and wise, these elegant essays are the s...tories we share to survive.' Diana Wichtel 'You'll want to read this in one sitting but it's worth savouring every line.' Madeleine Chapman 'Somehow it makes perfect sense that a great New Zealand memoir would be written by a dreamy, left-handed wife of an ex-All Black.' Steve Braunias These pieces read like the freshest of recent novels: clever, restrained and wittily observant. They range across the personal and the observational. There are essays on Linda's lifetime of being an All Black wife (once an AB, always an AB); her love of teaching, education and the young; and a powerful essay on the death of her baby, Toby, striking in its honesty. Linda is interested in family and friendship; shared and sometimes distorted memories. Her personal truths link to universal truths. She explores the era in which she grew up, and her experiences are timeless. She looks at living abroad, at children leaving home, at house-hunting in Wellington, at travelling with a grandchild, at Leonard Cohen concerts as tribal gatherings. Moving but never sentimental, Linda Burgess's essays are an engrossing read.

              Meet Mouk, a mellow little bear who takes his buddies by surprise when he sets off on an around-the-world adventure that will inspire kids to travel the world and discover different cultures. Bursting with colour and a zillion authentic details, Around the World with Mouk follows... our loveable, laid-back hero as he travels through eleven vividly illustrated countries, meeting new friends and learning about new places. From every place he sends a postcard to his friends at home. Children will delight in discovering a world of realistic details on every page, and learn fun facts from the postcards Mouk sends to his friends back home. The front endpapers feature Mouk getting ready to leave and say goodbye to his friends, while the back endpapers show his return home and include extra anecdotes about his travels. And to make sure our travelling bear is never lost, readers and pre-readers can follow his journey across the map on the back of the book. An optional sticker game lets children learn more about each country in a fun, interactive way.
