Wild Asparagus, Wild Strawberries:
Two Years in France

Author: Barbara Santich

Published by: Wakefield Press

Three copies to give away

“I drank Normandy farmhouse cider, ate strawberries dipped in red wine then sugar, and tasted truffles and soft goat cheeses for the first time. I returned to Australia inspired to become a food writer.”

France bewitched Barbara Santich as a student in the early 1970s. She vowed to return, and soon enough she did – with husband and infant twins in tow.

Kids can discover the animal kingdom like never before in this beautiful encyclopedia, featuring over 100 incredible creatures, from the grey wolf and green anaconda, to the bald eagle and emperor penguin.

Animals are all around us, but sometimes we forget just how remarkable they are.

Spinning Tops & Gumdrops:
A Portrait of Colonial Childhood

Author: Edwin Barnard

Publisher: NLA Publishing

One copy to give away

Spinning Tops & Gumdrops captures a time when imagination, skill, and daring was the source of children’s play. Quoits and jacks, hide and seek, cricket with a kerosene tin for a wicket, dress ups and charades, can all be seen in these appealing images. Children climb trees, run races, and build rafts to sail on the local waterhole, happily absorbed in the play of their own making.
