              Tonight is the night. The family has to flee. They've been tipped off that the authorities are after their blood. Set in biblical times, a small family sets off across a desert in search of refuge from persecution in their own country, and an ancient story becomes a fable for our... times. Their journey is beset by heat and thirst, threatening tanks and the loss of their donkey, but eventually they reach a refugee camp where they can wait in safety for asylum in another country. In this first-time collaboration between multi-award-winning author, Nadia Wheatley, and internationally-renowned illustrator, Armin Greder, words and images blend seamlessly to take readers on a journey they will never forget. AUTHOR: Nadia Wheatley lives in Sydney. In a literary career spanning three decades, she has written numerous award-winning picture books, novels, and works of history for children and adults. These include the classic picture book 'My Place', illustrated by Donna Rawlins, and the historical novel 'The House that was Eureka'. The 'Papunya School Book of Country and History' was the result of a five-year collaboration with Aboriginal students and staff at Papunya School (Northern Territory). In 2013 Nadia was nominated by IBBY Australia for the Hans Christian Andersen Award for Writing. ILLUSTRATOR: Armin Greder was born in Switzerland. In 1971 he migrated to Australia where he worked as a graphic designer and later taught design and illustration at a tertiary art institution. Picture books he has illustrated include 'The Great Bear', 'An Ordinary Day' and 'I Am Thomas'; and he has written and illustrated 'The Island' and 'The City'. He is the recipient of a number of international recognitions such as the Bologna Ragazzi Award, and he has been nominated for the Hans Christian Andersen Award. He now lives in Lima, Peru.

              From acclaimed spoken-word poet Shane Koyczan, the rallying cry against bullying that became a viral video viewed over 13 million times."I'm not the only kid who grew up this way surrounded by people who used to say that rhyme about sticks and stones as if broken bones hurt more ...than the names we got called." Now a dazzling illustrated book featuring the work of thirty artists from around the world, To This Day is a powerful expression of the lasting effects of bullying, and the inner strength that allows people to move beyond it. With a heartfelt personal preface by Shane, this extraordinary poem will resonate with anyone who has experienced bullying, whether as a victim, observer or participant.

Un libro extraordinario que obliga a sus lectores a reflexionar sobre las nociones de la infancia, la responsabilidad de ser padres, la muerte, el condicionamiento humano y, en ultima instancia, sobre si el amor puede ser suficiente. A long time ago in a faraway country where winter could last up to three years, there lived a woman. She had a son whom she loved. She loved him so much that she decided he would not experience the terrible things that happen in life. She left her home and her city and built a house somewhere out of reach of roads and bridges. She took care of him and they were happy. But one night, the woman died. This extraordinary book invites readers to reflect on the concepts of childhood, the responsibilities of parenthood, death, the human condition, and whether love can be enough.
