              The Peacock Detectives (EPUB ebook)

              By Nugent, Carly

              Shortlisted for the 2017 Text Prize Today would have been an ordinary Saturday, except that two things happened: 1) The peacocks escaped and 2) I started writing this story. Dad says if you want to write a story you should start by choosing a topic that you know a lot ...about. That's why this is a story about peacocks. I know a lot about peacocks because: (a) Two peacocks live in the holiday flats across the road from me and (b) I'm good at finding them when they go missing. The last time William Shakespeare and Virginia went missing Cassie found them sitting on a coiled hose behind the fire station, and Dad called her 'Cassie Andersen, Peacock Detective'. So this time she knows what to do-she'll look for clues and track them down. But the clues lead her in an unexpected direction and Cassie finds herself investigating a confusing mystery about her family. The Peacock Detectives is a warm and engaging story for middle-grade readers about dealing with change and finding out who you are. Carly Nugent lives in Bright in Victoria. Her short fiction has featured in numerous publications, including the Bellevue Literary Review and Award Winning Australian Writing. The Peacock Detectives is her first novel. 'Heartfelt and funny...Carly Nugent's debut is a lively and generous story that acknowledges the powerful feelings of its readers, and the space they occupy in the world.' Books+Publishing 'Nugent gently explores issues of depression...and brings the whole adventure satisfyingly around with a delightful peacock discovery.' SA Weekend

              1984 & Animal Farm
               

              1984 & Animal Farm (EPUB ebook)

              By Orwell, George

              Two of the greatest and most influential works of the twentieth century, together in one edition: 1984, with an introduction by Charlotte Wood, and Animal Farm, with an introduction by Don Watson. George Orwell's novels about the dangers of tyranny, the corruption of the state a...nd the enslavement of the individual are essential reading. In an era of doublespeak, they remain chillingly prophetic. George Orwell, born Eric Arthur Blair (1903-1950), was a teacher, novelist and journalist. He also served his country including in the Home Guard during the Second World War. He later became the literary editor of the Tribune and wrote for the Observer and Manchester Evening News. The author of nine books, Orwell is best known for the allegorical Animal Farm (1945) and dystopian satire 1984 (1949). They have gone on the become two of the most influential books of the twentieth century. 'There are no replacements for George Orwell, just as there are no replacements for a Bernard Shaw or a Mark Twain...he pricked, provoked and badgered lazy minds, delighted those who enjoyed watching an original intelligence at work.'
