              By French, Jackie; Illustrated by Wilson, Mark

              Horace is a very big horse with an even bigger heart. Every day he pulls the baker's cart and helps Old William, Big Bill and Young Billy take bread, buns and other doughy delights to all the people in the town. But when a terrible flu makes everyone sick, who is going to deliver... the bread to hungry families? Written by Jackie French and based on a true story told to her by her grandmother, Horace the Baker's Horse captures a time when horses were part of everyday life. Set in 1919 during the Spanish influenza epidemic, it tells the story of how, when the baker and his family are struck down by illness, Horace sets off on his well-trodden round to deliver bread to the townsfolk all by himself. Peter Bray's illustrations bring the story to life in vivid detail. Jackie French is one of Australia's best-loved authors. She is the Australian National Children's Laureate for 2014 and 2015 and Senior Australian of the Year for 2015. She has written more than 140 books, won more than 60 national and international awards and her books have been translated into 36 languages.

              'GRIPPING, EMOTIONAL AND MOVING'- New Idea on Facing the Flame (The Matilda Saga, Book 7) A killer lurks behind the kindness of the Gibber's Creek community. Under the burnt timber of the church, the police have found the body of Merv Ignatious, the man who so viciously attacked ...Jed Kelly when she was fifteen, and tried to kill her and her unborn child in last year's bushfire. And also in the church lie skeletons from many years ago. Newcomer Fish Johnstone refuses to believe Jed Kelly's husband, Sam McAlpine, killed Merv to save his wife and child, as the police suspect. Nor could heavily pregnant Jed have killed him nor Scarlett, who is now at last managing to leave her wheelchair to walk a few steps. But Fish must also face her own mystery - a father who recently appeared as a Vietnamese 'boat person' refugee, but has vanished once again. As the last dingo howls on the hills above the river, Fish finds that Gibber's Creek has many secrets. And some of them are deadly. Set in the late 1970s, this haunting story shows how love and kindness can create the courage to face the past. PRAISE FOR THE MATILDA SAGA 'The perfect read for anyone who loves immersing themselves in Australian fiction. Gripping, emotional and moving, Facing the Flame is a great book to curl up with on a warm spring night.' - New Idea 'Highly recommended ... this was a complete binge, read in one night because it was just too good and too gripping to put down ... a cracking story filled with rich characters both old and new and imbued with all that we hold dear about Australian love of country and mateship' - ReadPlus 'An entertaining and fascinating read that accurately captures the feel of the early 1970s' - Canberra Weekly

              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.
