Description:

When Bobby's grandmother was thirteen, she and seven friends disappeared for a period of six days. No-one in town ever talks about this mystery but Bobby wants to know what happened then and if it was the reason why her grandmother always had a sad, faraway look in her eyes.
Red-haired, hot-tempered Bobby is an ultra-modern twelve-year-old girl from a Celtic background with ideas that could be described as alternative. Raised to be open-minded and confident by a single, working mother who holds angel card readings and is interested in New-Age beliefs, Bobby is fiercely independent in her own thinking and behaviour.
When she meets another home-schooler, David, who is from a big, highly educated Italian family and has been raised to have more conservative, mainstream beliefs and old-fashioned values, it is difficult to imagine how they could ever be friends. However, the do have something in common. David too has a mystery that he wants to solve about his own heritage.
Bobby is determined that she will solve the mystery of the missing children whether the wary David is prepared to be involved or not. But David does not have much choice.
With the help of a crystal ball possessing magical powers that Bobby has just stumbled across, the two are transported through a wormhole into another time dimension where they make startling discoveries, not only about their own ancestries but also about themselves.
Join them on an adventure where an evil workhouse and her orc slaves threaten to overrun the idyllic island paradise which has now become their new home.

Description:

In this ground-breaking book, Professor Tracey McDonald, RSL LifeCare Chair of Ageing at the Australian Catholic University, explores some of the many issues arising from an ageing population, ageing veterans and community health. Many of the projects presented in the book have been awarded Better Practice Awards by the Australian Government and provide inspiration to aged care service providers keen to improve their services. Professor McDonald has developed 'practice-driven research', an approach that fully involves clinical nurses and carers in striving to understand the work they are doing, and to improve on it. This approach has been developed in collaboration with the clinical nurses, therapists and managers at RSL LifeCare, and addresses the issues of relevance and appropriateness of research in solving practical, day-to-day problems within the Aged Care setting. It will appeal to all involved with the aged care industry, particularly managers and leaders at all levels, and also bridges the theory-practice gap by providing an overview of practice-driven research for health sciences students within the Australian University environment.

Description:

The author of 'Better Out Than In' and 'Better Out Than In Number Twos' is back with a collection of random musings and drawings that will make kids laugh out loud. It includes Adam's wacky view of topics including 'Top 5 Dance Moves', 'Top 5 Super Powers' and 'Things That Look Cute But Will Scratch Your Eyes Out If You Try To Hug Them'. There's even a recipe for Roast Monkey Butt with Tofu and Apples (No monkeys were harmed in the making of this book though!).
It's random, it's weird and it's definitely hilarious! As Adam says, "Look, to be honest, it was just me rambling on about anything that popped into my head, and now there is a whole book of this random stuff! A WHOLE BOOK! THIS BOOK! OMG! Which means Oh My God. It doesn't mean, as I initially thought, Old Men Giggled. And LOL doesn't mean Lots Of Love! I found that out when someone died and I wrote to their wife and said, 'I hear that your husband died. I'm sorry. LOL.' It didn't go down too well."

Description:

A gentle, wise and old tree encourages a Sugar Glider to look for a new home before the mining comes. Scared and alone, the Sugar Glider starts looking for a new home, despite the fact it is daytime. The tree helps other animals too: A Rhinoceros Beetle climbs its branches and is blown away, far away from the mine site. A Cassowary, a flightless bird that is native to the tropical rainforests of North Eastern Australia, is also featured as a loyal friend to the tree.
The tree rustled its leaves thoughtfully. "Once, a long time ago when I was much smaller, another mine threatened us. Some caring humans chained themselves to my mother tree and they save the forest. Perhaps they will help us again."
Written as a protest against a proposed $1.2 billion bauxsite mine near the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve at the Cape York Peninsula, this chidren's book has eighteen vibrant illustrations of the rainforest and its animals.

Description:

Following the success of 'The Funeral Celebrant's Handbook', Barry H Young OAM has been inspired to write a sequel offering an abundance of choices of poems, prose and prayers to assist practising and aspiring funeral celebrants when planning a funeral. Families who wish to actually participate during the ceremony will also find a great depth of choice in this carefully considered volume which, like 'The Funeral Celebrant's Handbook', is also presented in orderly sequential sections (passages), beginning with meaningful, relevant and heartfelt openings through to the Committal and Benediction. Barry Young prefaces each passage with moving words of wisdom about the actual messages or thoughts that the readings following will impart.
There are passages suitable for funeral ceremonies for the elderly, middle-aged, teenagers, babies, tragic occurrences, suicides and the lonely; those who cut themselves off from society; those without family and those affected by illnesses and drugs. It provides tributes from husbands and wives, tributes from sons and daughters, grandchildren and those who have served in the forces.
Barry H Young OAM has been a member of the Australian Federation of Grief Celebrants since 1998. To hear him present a Farewell or Memorial Service is to be amongst the privileged. Being mindful of grief and the provision of comfort to young and old on his journey as a funeral celebrant, he has seen a need for such a book to assist celebrants to make each ceremony unique and meaningful for the loved ones. This book gives many inspirational choices of readings; it will also become a treasured and relevant handbook for celebrants.
