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:

The novella and two short stories here are all based on real-life personages.
Gamine, Ashe, Furry and Quark all graced my household for many long and fruitful years; while Tom was a resident of my home town and I heard rumours of his strange and improbable deliverance. There is also a tiny cameo appearance by Dougal and Shadow, whose biographies have been chronicled here.
I have mentioned in public appearances that I have some issues with feline fiction as it is commonly practised. While I love and adore cats and feel privileged indeed that they have shared their lives with me, I believe that the following rules for feline-fic should be adhered to:
1. Let the cats tell their own stories. We all enthuse to other cat-lovers about my beautiful cats and this is how they make me feel; but in fiction the human author should get out of the way and let cats be the centre of attention. Humans will generally be characters, but they should not hog the stage.
2. Cats are not small, furry humans. They are cats. Fictional cats should therefore think, feel and react like cats do.
3. The cat must not die at the end of the story. Yes, we get it. Eventually all cats become Rainbow Cats. Manipulating your readers' emotions by including The Sad Bit At The End is not respecting your audience, especially for younger readers. Don't do it!
I promise faithfully that the above rules have been followed in all my cat stories. Enjoy!
David Greagg

Description:

It was the Grand Final on Saturday. Carrot the Parrot was the Coach for the Birds' team. But he'd lost his voice. Sleuth Astrid had to find it, in time for the Grand Final because the team needed the Voice of the Coach. Was the Voice captured in the TV 'Footy' studio? Lost down his throat? Was a Voice Coach any use? What about the Speakeasy? Or the Voice-over on the TV Footy panel or on Talk-back? And then there's the Bird Wedding of the Year. Carrot was supposed to be the MC (Master of Ceremonies). As usual, Sleuth Astrid the Mind-Reading Chook, solves the problem.

Description:

She'd always imagined her song for Emilia would quietly develop, and one day she would sit at her piano or the desk, take a blank music sheet, and begin the first sweet bars.
It did not begin like that...
It's 1964 and Sandra turns 19. She is studying at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and playing piano with fellow student Billy at a jazz club. She wonders if she's still in love with Nick but he is far away, having left university to help his father on the family property during the drought.
A letter comes from best friend Emilia that shatters their bond, and Sandra's long-promised 'Song for Emilia' becomes a storm of hatred and love for her oldest friend.
