              "When the human creatures appeared, they ravaged the forests and hunted many birds to extinction. The flightless Striggs had only one option: They went down, down under the ground . . . And its there, as you may have heard it whispered, that they still remain. Far below, in a pla...ce of stone and darkness . . .Over thousands of years, they colonised a labyrinth of tunnels and caves, but even underground the Striggs are not safe: chemicals now pollute their water and a deadly sickness threatens the flock. Even worse: an inquisitive young Strigg called Ellee Meddo discovers a human boy, trapped deep in a well. Humans are to be feared and saving him could mean travelling to the surface, a place of untold peril. What will Ellee decide to do? Are you brave enough to follow Ellee into the darkness?"--Publisher information.

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.

              Bishops, Boozers, Brethren & Burkas: a Cartoon History of Religion in New Zealand
                

              Bishops, Boozers, Brethren & Burkas: a Cartoon History of Religion in New Zealand

              By Grimshaw, Mike

              The Book: Bishops, Boozers, Brethren &Burkhas uses cartoons from 1860s to the present day to discuss the way religion in New Zealand has been represented by our cartoonists. There is no general history of religion in New Zealand so this book is a unique contribution in providing ...not only a cartoon history of religion in this country but also a history via cartoons. From the 1860s, settlers viewed issues of religion and politics as problematic, but in the main, religion remained part of the fabric of society. However, religion was more of a concern for our cartoonists as New Zealand became an increasingly secular nation from the 1970s onwards. This not only reflects the generation of cartoonists whose work was published from the 1970s but also a shift in New Zealand society more generally. Overall, when religion was less of a contested identity and influence, cartoonists tended to leave religion - and the church alone. However, as the country became, very quickly, a secular society from the 1970s onwards, religion was a target of cartoonists. Religion and the religious were increasingly presented as representing religious and social attitudes and beliefs regarded as out of step with a modern society. The Author: Mike Grimshaw (PhD Otago) is Associate Professor in Sociology at University of Canterbury, New Zealand. A founding series editor for Radical Theologies and Philosophies (Palgrave Macmillan) and founding co-editor of Continental Thought & Theory:(http://ctt.canterbury.ac.nz/about-ctt/), he toils at the intersections of radical theology, continental thought and cultural and social theory. He also has a focus on New Zealand religious and intellectual history; recently publishing a book of interviews with the New Zealand radical religious thinker Sir Lloyd Geering(Geering Interviews, Polebridge, USA, 2018) and edited the letters of the noted New Zealand philosopher Arthur Prior (Arthur Prior, 'a young progressive', Canterbury University Press, 2018).
