              He turned: the scapegoat was pointing a fleshy arm directly down at the water, and following it Roland saw a mass of pale, stringy lines suddenly seething up from the deeps to surface all about the ship. He froze in disbelief. It couldn't be- But then the cry went up from the mai...n deck. 'Ropes! White ropes!' And so the horror began. A ship and its crew held in thrall by an ancient sea creature, a young girl blinded by foresight, a scapegoat with a gift to foresee death - these haunting short stories set in the Four Isles, the setting of Andrew McGahan's highly acclaimed Ship Kings series, tell fascinating tales of tall ships, ancient grudges and the full significance of the meaning of indefinite survival in an ocean that holds as many mysteries as it does drops of water. 'A fitting end to the epic Ship Kings series, Treasures of the Deep moves with mysterious grandeur through lost oceans and wild. Its captains and crew, both real and ghostly, find equal parts horror and wonder in their path. These are some deep, dark, fantastical adventures. Do you dare to set sail?' --Margo Lanagan

              Ursula Dubosarsky is the Australian Children's Laureate for 2020 - 2021 Lara had always wished she was a dog, and one day, just for a short time, she actually became one. This is how it happened. In a tall mulberry brick terrace house on the harbour that Lara explores while her m...other cleans, Lara meets Pierre, a boy about her age with a beautiful antique puppet theatre. With his puppets, he tells her a story about a boy whose family has been eaten by wolves. The boy is lost. He needs to find his grandmother. Lara takes the part of a dog but, suddenly, she can no longer tell where she ends and Dog begins. Or is she Wolf? Caught up in Pierre's story, Lara has to fight to protect her new friend but also her identity - and to help Pierre find his home. Pierre's Not There is a lyrical, captivating, imaginative and highly original story that can be read on many levels.

Together, they are The EnviroTeens and they are about to get very, very angry. Singleuse Brendan may have an evil plan to destroy all the world's turtles with his dastardly battle turtel-e-pooter, but believe it or not, there is something even more evil than an angry plastic bag on a garbage island in the middle of the ocean. Climate Change. The EnviroTeens will do anything to stop this impending disaster: scale slippery volcanoes, scurry through forests full of poisonous armpit monsters, even meet Senator Ian, the Climate Denialist Potato. But to really fix the planet, will they have to rid the world of all the adults who started it all? They can't biff everyone! What will they do? A comic graphic novel from the popular Guardian cartoonist and creator of Brenda the Civil Disobedience Penguin about a group of fast-talking and fast-thinking teenage climate activists who are determined to clean the planet and clear the air.

              It's the first day of school and Jesse's already got three problems: 1) He's got the worst classroom teacher ever - Mrs Leeman's mean and so old she taught his dad 2) He might have accidentally been voted School Captain (he had an unusually popular day when the class voted last y...ear) 3) He somehow lost his Grade Six jersey between receiving it and Mrs Leeman's lecture about being responsible. That's a lot to go wrong in the first half an hour! On top of that, it's about a million degrees. So that's four problems. It's worse than he thought! Jesse will have you roaring with laughter as he navigates the rites and rituals of Grade Six including a disrespectful Prep buddy, a plumbing problem the size of Niagara Falls, not to mention the dreaded compulsory school camp.
