              Pete dreams of being an All Black but life isn't easy - other boys in the rugby team are bigger and stronger, the new principal is trying to take Maori culture away from school, and his annoying daughter wants to be Pete's friend. Stuff that. She's a straight up weirdo! The schoo...l bully wants to smash his face in every chance he gets, and on top of that, his best mate isn't being himself lately. What's going on with him? A book where young characters begin to question their world in Aotearoa. Was land stolen off Maori years ago? If so, what does that mean now? Why was there a war between Maori and Europeans on the banks of the Waikato river? How different are New Zealand Maori from New Zealand Europeans today, and how different did their cultures used to be? When it seems like everything is against Pete, he has to stand up and fight for what he believes in, and he learns that help can come from the most surprising places.

His journey learning to recognize, acknowledge and then to manage these is full of challenges wit...h his sneaky, tricky and sometimes silly black dog. Rupert learns that he has more support than he first realizes, even though he feels completely alone, and that having a black dog does not mean that he is a freak, that he is weak or pathetic. With the help of a clever toolbox, his friends and family, Rupert learns to shrink his big black dog and to manage it each time that pesky dog starts to grow. Suddenly Rupert has a wonderful gift to share with others and encourage the conversations that we should all be having.

              Sixteen-year-old Bianca Taylor just wants to be a normal teenager but normal has never come naturally to her. Not only is she known as the Albino of Pentacle High, but Bianca is also an auric-empath; able to see and feel the colourful auras of those around her. To make mat...ters worse Bianca has started sleepwalking; waking to find herself naked in the forest, with visions of demonic beasts fresh in her mind. At first, she sees her nighttime wanderings as harmless. But when a local rancher goes missing, after a run of gruesome cattle killings, Bianca starts to fear for her safety. A handsome stranger appears in town, telepathically warning Bianca that she is in danger. But does he also hold the answers to who, and what, she really is?
