            Foothand Elbownose tells the story of an unhappy foot, and a boy who just wants what's best for everyone. Max's foot is fed up and wants to be a hand instead - he's over puddles and prickles and being trod on every day - and Max, being ever so obliging, agrees. All is fine until ...the other body parts start putting in requests of their own, and when Max finds himself with not only a foothand but an elbownose, headbottom and a mouthear, he has no choice but to send the body parts back to where they belong. Which, as it happens, suits them.

            Did you know that platypus have retractable webbing on their hind feet to enable an easy transition from swimming to digging? That kangaroos can't sweat and that the cassowary has no tongue? In Fauna - Australia's Most Curious Creatures, readers are constantly introduced to facts... that delight, amaze and induce sheer wonder at the clever design and adaptability of our much-loved native fauna. The information on each individual species is presented in small `bites' to hold the interest of younger readers, while the information taken in total gives a comprehensive summary of each species, including breeding and feeding habits, physical characteristics, habitat and other unique and quirky features. Fauna also has a strong conservation message with an `extinction roll call' and a rating for the vulnerability of endangered species. The stylised illustrations in Fauna are lively, colourful and informative, highlighting facts that lend themselves more to pictures than words e.g. the actual size of crocodile teeth, or the mechanics of the echidna's beak. There is also humour in the illustrations - is that kangaroo with dark glasses actually from a different kind of mob? Readers young and old will be delighted and informed by Fauna.
