            WHEN CRINOLINES, BUSTLES AND OSTRICH FEATHERS WERE THE HEIGHT OF COLONIAL FASHION. This richly illustrated and lively social history explores the creation, consumption and spectacle of fashionable dress in Aotearoa New Zealand from 1840 to the early 1900s. Dressmakers were essent...ial contributors to the development of New Zealand, and as a colonial outpost of the British Empire, New Zealands 19th century dress culture was heavily shaped by international trends. Interactions with Maori, the demands of settler lifestyle and the countrys geography all added another layer. Dressed teems with the fascinating, busy lives of early businesswomen, society women and civic figures. Featuring dresses and fashionable accessories from museums throughout Aotearoa New Zealand, and including over 270 images, this major book makes a significant contribution to histories of colonial dress.

With the skeleton armies gone, trading is a breeze and life returns to somewhat normal for the kids who decided to stay a...t the outpost. Logan, Maddy, Brooklyn, Cloud, and Zoe should be enjoying the peace and quiet at Battle Station Prime, but there's one thing that keeps them up at night: The threat of the Dragonmaster's revenge. The Ender Dragon egg had been a carefully guarded secret until it hatched and the young, powerful, dragon inside imprinted on an evil sorcerer named Borin. They know that it's only a matter of time before this dangerous partnership threatens their existence. Even The Prime Knight knows that he can't stop the mighty forces that are about to be unleashed. He recruits the kids of Battle Station Prime to form a Dragon Alliance and help him save the world from the kind of destruction that could change the realm forever. The fierce, young warriors set out on a perilous journey to The End to fight for everything they love. As they follow The Prime Knight into the greatest quest of their lives, the ties that once bound them together in battle will be pushed to the limit and they'll be forced to make choices they never expected to make.
