            Award-winning David Hill's exciting WW2 novel for tweens and teens inspired by the coastwatchers of Operation Pacific. 'It's not going to be a cushy job, young Benson. You're on your own. If a snake takes a mouthful of you, there's no medics to help. Japs will be looking for you.... Far as they're concerned, you're spies. And when a spy gets captured, remember . . .' It's 1943 and 19-year-old radio operator Frank Benson is shipped out to the Japanese-occupied Solomon Islands to become a coastwatcher. Equipped with a wireless set and two companions, radio assistant Wally and Les, a gruff but experienced soldier, his mission is to keep tabs on the enemy and transmit coded information back to HQ. In the dense jungle the men meet a young Solomon Islander. A'ata says he has something vital to show them. Frank's instincts are to trust him, but Les disagrees. What if it's a trap to deliver them to the Japanese? No training could have prepared Frank for this - and their survival depends on his next decision.

            Kiwicorn feels like he is mucking up the smallest of tasks. He moves through many different emotional states as he tries to achieve his goal. But, when he finally pauses, he realises that if he'd just stepped back and had a deep breath, the solution was there all along. This gorg...eous book explores a wide array of feelings. No emotion lasts forever and each situation brings something new. The simple story gives children the chance to identify the feeling, and opens up a discussion about what makes them feel that way. The theme of the story overall is 'resilience', not giving up when things get a bit tough.

            A story full of humour and heart about having the blues, in the form of a big heavy elephant. One day an elephant came and sat on my chest. I found it hard to get up or move around, to breathe or talk. I'm Blue, the elephant said. Can you please move, Blue? I asked. I don't want ...to move. This is a good spot for me to sit. You're crushing me, I said. Yet I find you very comfortable, said Blue. Mum read every book about elephants she could get her hands on, while Dad phoned an elephant specialist someone recommended. They all tried pushing, and pulling, and persuading. But would anyone - or anything - be able to shift Blue? Warm, empathetic, hopeful and often funny, with the ability to be read on different levels, My Elephant is Blue is the perfect story to help children explore and understand the experience of living under the weight of a big sadness.
