              Machete and the Ghost: The true story behind the men behind the myth
               

              Machete and the Ghost: The true story behind the men behind the myth (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Griffin, James; Kightley, Oscar

              Lelei Lelei Jnr (aka Machete) and Neil Turnbull (aka The Ghost) came from very different backgrounds but when they eventually found each other they became the 2nd five/centre combination that ruled world rugby. On the pitch they were an unorthodox and mostly unstoppable team. On ...their day, when they were on the same wavelength, they were world beaters and very possibly the two best All Blacks ever to play in their positions. Then there were the days - on and off the pitch - when they were like fire and ice. Theirs was a passionate friendship/kinship/borderline love affair. Sometimes they were of one mind, other times they would do things so stupid it was like they had only one mind between them. Needless to say, trouble had a way of finding them, following them and even moving in to the spare room for a while. Machete & The Ghost is the book that charts the careers of the two greatest All Blacks who never existed. It chronicles their mythical on-field achievements; tells invented stories about the behind-the-scenes goings on of professional rugby; and also makes up their troubles and triumphs off the field, in their tabloid-worthy private lives. This is the book that takes all the tropes you've read in every other rugby biography and twists and turns them for shameless comedic benefit. Machete & The Ghost - totally made up, but by people who know and love the game of rugby enough to make all the bullshit sound entirely plausible.

              Polly the parrot is rude and grumpy because she's fed up with people asking "Does Polly Want a Cracker?" Then when she is banned from the zoo and sent to a pet shop, something amazing happens. Hilarious picture book from a well-known New Zealand author. Stephanie has always loved... books and reading, and spent much of her Glenfield childhood lying around reading books instead of playing sports. She also loved drawing and painting, especially sketching people and drawing caricatures of those around her. Starting her working life in libraries, she later became a graphic designer and worked in Auckland and Dublin, all the while dreaming of someday making children's books. Her first picture book was Great Galloping Galoot about a clumsy giraffe. Polly Does NOT want a cracker! Is her eighth publication. Stephanie lives with her husband and three young boys in Huia, West Auckland.
