              Twinkle, tickle, little star, of the salty sea. Near the rocks where mussels cling, is where I'm sure to be. A zillion feet adorn my arms; I don't have a head or teeth. My bottom's on the top of me; my mouth is where? Underneath. Anne Hunter's playful and delightful rhymes... along with Dave Gunson's superb illustrations, perfectly capture the unique characteristics of a range of creatures and plant life that young children commonly encounter when exploring the New Zealand seashore. Rhyming verse delightfully details some of the special features of triplefins, hermit crabs, scallops, jellyfish, sea anemonies, seaweed, black-backed gulls, paddle crabs, paua, katipo, sponges and starfish. This entertaining book is intended to be read aloud and children will be fascinated to learn more about the wild life on the seashore so they can enjoy exploring when visiting the beach. There is a fascinating facts section to supplement the verse at the back of the book.

              Much has been written about explorer Ernest Shackleton's three courageous expeditions to the Antarctic. What is not so well-known is the crucial role that Captain Frank Worsley played in saving the lives of the crew of Endurance after it got stuck in ice floes and broke apart dur...ing the attempt to traverse the Continent in 1914. After abandoning their ship, in the Weddell Sea, Frank led marches across the ice in the hope of reaching land. When their ice flow split, endangering all their lives, the survivors boarded three small lifeboats. Frank navigated them to Elephant Island during a terrific storm. When they found the island uninhabited, Frank led a six-man rescue party 1300 kilometres overland to a whaling station in South Georgia. Without his precise navigation skills and incredible determination, the rescue party would never have made it. One day after reaching the whaling station, he set out again to go back and rescue the other members of the lifeboat party.
