            A heartwarming picture book from award-winning author-illustrator Caroline Magerl about two unlikely loners who forge a forever friendship.Nop is a scruffy kind of bear. He sits on a dusty armchair in Oddmint's Dumporeum surrounded by the beaders, knitters, patchers and stitchers... who are much too busy to talk to him. So he watches the litter tumble until, armed with a new bow tie, he has an idea that will change his life forever.This story began with a memory of Caroline's school holidays in Sydney. Her father was welding a steel yacht in a boat yard and she wandered off . . . only to discover the local dump, a home for the things people throw out! Many years later, her daughter Jen made a teddy bear out of scraps for her father. It's a very sorry-looking, but endearing creature. Named Roadkill, ten years later it still sits on top of his desk.This story began with a memory of Caroline's school holidays in Sydney.

            THIS KOALA JUST HAS TO BE ON TOP! I am top of every tree! Top is always best to be. And this koala is determined to be at the very top of EVERYTHING. From a mast in the Sydney to Hobart yacht race to the Parliament House flagpole in Canberra, this koala travels around Australia a...nd tops it all! The sequel to the delightfully funny Koala Bare, internationally renowned author Jackie French and talented illustrator Matt Shanks have created another ... top-notch book. PRAISE FOR KOALA BARE 'The rhyming text appears so deceptively simple and effortless that it reads like an absolute treat. This book is beautifully illustrated by upcoming illustrator Matt Shanks, who creates gorgeous watercolour paintings to accompany the whimsical text. - 100percentrock.com 'In Koala Bare, Jackie French and Matt Shanks have created a uniquely Australian story for young children.' - Kids' Book Review 'A wonderfully funny look at several important things: the difference between the words bare and bear, the fact that the koala is not a bear and as the reader reads on they will learn some of the attributes of bears. But the main focus is the fun, the wit of French's rhyming stanzas, the prediction of the rhyming word at the end of each phrase, the use of words like posterior, the attempts by the koala to get readers to see him as he is.' - ReadPlus

            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.
