  • Tohora The Southern Right Whale
    Tohora The Southern Right Whale
    Once, the mighty tohora, or southern right whale, was a common sight in winter off the coast of Aotearoa. But it proved to be an easy target for the 19th-century whalers, and was soon driven to the edge of extinction. In the 20th century, however, it became a protected species, and once commercial whaling was virtually stopped, the southern right whale made a comeback. Ned Barraud recounts this moving story in this beautifully illustrated book, a heartening and optimistic tale for every New Zealand child.

  • Trees, Leaves, Flowers and Seeds
    Trees, Leaves, Flowers and Seeds
    A unique and beautiful children's guide to the extraordinary world of plants, from the smallest seeds to the tallest trees.

    We couldn't live without plants. We need them for food, shelter, even the air we breathe, yet we know surprisingly little about them. Why do thistles bristle with spines? How do some plants trap and eat insects? Did you know there are trees more than 5,000 years old? Trees, Leaves, Flowers & Seeds explores the mysterious world of plants
    to find the answers to these and many more questions.

    Each type of plant - such as a flowering plant, a tree, a grass, or cactus - is examined close-up, with an example shown from all angles and even in cross-section. Then picture-packed galleries show the wonderful variety of plants on different themes, perhaps the habitat they grow in, a flower family, or the plants that supply us with our staple foods. But the book also takes a fun, more sideways look at some truly weird and wonderful plants, including trees with fruits like a giant's fingers, orchids that look like monkey faces, seeds that spin like helicopters, and trees that drip poison.

    So open this fascinating book and find out more about the amazing world of trees, leaves, flowers, and seeds.

  • Up the River
    Up the River
    The sixth title in the award-winning `explore & discover' series, Up the River: Explore & discover New Zealand's rivers, lakes and wetlands gives children an opportunity to look under the surface and see what special creatures live, around New Zealand's freshwater habitats - our creeks, rivers, lakes and wetlands. Included in this title are animals ranging from the familiar p-u?keko to the rarely seen bittern, from the iconic eel to tiny whitebait, and some of the many barely known aquatic insects. Swimmable and drinkable fresh water are hot topics, and Up the River shows that many native animals depend on healthy waterways for a habitat, and their presence is often used as a sign of the water's health. Beautifully illustrated and impeccably researched, this is a wonderful and intriguing way for children to learn about New Zealand's freshwater environments. Previous `explore & discover' titles have: won the Elsie Locke Medal for non-fiction (2013), received Storylines awards (2014, 2015) and been finalists in the NZ Children's Book Awards (2013, 2015).
