              A SWASHBUCKLING ADVENTURE FROM AUSTRALIA'S CHILDREN'S LAUREATE Twelve-year-old Ben Huntsmore is the son of a ship-owner, an only child who loves the farming life on his family's estate, Badger's Hill. But when Ben's father loses their ancestral home to pay a gambling debt, Ben re...luctantly joins his father in a desperate venture to win back their home, capturing enemy trading ships off the west Australian coast. While at sea, Ben must face not just the giant waves of the Southern Ocean but also Dutch guns, as well as unexpected treachery as he realises that his almost-unknown father will sacrifice even his son to make his fortune. Only the unexpected friendships of the mysterious convict Higgins and young Indigenous sailor Guwara will help Ben survive, as well as show him the true meaning of loyalty and riches. From one of Australia's most-renowned children's authors comes a book filled with swashbuckling adventures that uncovers Australian's hidden history as a pirate port and slavers' den.

              The fifth title in the sweeping MATILDA series. Ages: 12 years+ and crossover Hippies wear beads, demonstrators march against the Vietnam War, and the world waits to see the first human steps on the moon's surface. But at Gibbers Creek, Jed Kelly sees ghosts, from the past and fu...ture, at the Drinkwater billabong where long ago the swaggie leaped to his defiant death. But is seventeen-year-old Jed a con artist or a survivor? When she turns up at Drinkwater Station claiming to be the great-granddaughter of Matilda Thompson's dying husband, Jed clearly has secrets. As does a veteran called Nicholas, who was badly wounded in the Vietnam War and now must try to create a life he truly wants to live, despite the ghosts that haunt him too. Set during the turbulence of the late 1960s, this was a time when brilliant and little-known endeavours saw Australia play a vital role in Neil Armstrong's 'one one giant leap formankind' on that first unforgettable moon walk. The fifth title in the highly acclaimed Matilda Saga, The Ghost by the Billabong is a story of deep conflicts and enduring passions - for other people, for the land, and for the future of humanity. Age: 12 years+ and crossover

              Flinty McAlpine is sixteen, and while WW1 ended almost a year ago it still resonates for Flinty and her family who lost so much. Years of war and drought have also left the district in chaos and local families are doing their best to rebuild lives and land. With both parents dead..., Flinty is bringing up her younger siblings as her brother Andy has 'gone with cattle' to Queensland. Money is tight, but as the best rider in the family Flinty seizes the opportunity to make a quick GBP100. Disguised as a boy, she talks her way into a brumby muster that is headed up by the legendary Clancy of the Overflow. Among the herd there is an unbroken colt that Flinty buys, as she can see his enormous potential. But for a young girl of sixteen, there is still so much of life to be lived, and while Flinty has hints of her future, she never imagines what is can really hold for this girl from Snowy River. The second title in The Matilda Saga, this book is a love song to the beautiful Snowy Mountains and a tribute to Australia's poets who immortalized so much of our land.
