Hooray For Chester!

Author: Rina A. Foti

Illustrator: Ellen J. Hickman

Chester decides that Greenbush Swamp is the perfect place for a crocodile to live. But it seems nobody there wants to play with him, not the lorikeets or the storks, not the possums or the bats, not even the fish! Then one day the creatures of Greenbush Swamp discover that Chester is no ordinary crocodile. This is a great book explaining how wrong first expressions can be and that we should accept others regardless of how different they may be from us. It is a great story that teaches kids to always help others when in need even if those others didn’t think of you as their friend at first.

Tuart Dwellers

Author: Jan Ramage

Illustrator: Ellen Hickman

From the break of dawn to nightfall, the tuart is not as it appears. Leaves and bark, trunk and branches - all are places of pretence, traps and trickery. Find out what surprise a "moon crater" might hide and why a bullseye borer drills holes; how a crab spider goes shopping and a jewel beetle becomes a seedpod; why a dragon wears a beard and how a gecko talks. And meet the "mad hatterpiller", who does a very clever hat trick. Tuart Dwellers celebrates the diversity, colour and ingenuity of the natural world.

Flora of Australia Volume 11A Mimosaceae Acacia part I

Editor: Anthony E. Orchard & Annette J.G. Wilson

Australian wattles are now described in the Flora of Australia Volume 11A&B. These two volumes provide for the first time in many years a complete account of this important group of plants. They are the culmination of decades of work by a team of scientists from across the country, and present a benchmark that will be indispensable for land managers, horticulturalists, scientists and all those who wish to know more of one of the country's iconic plants.

The volumes open with background essays on the relationships, biology, fossil history and utilisation of wattles, before moving to the traditional tightly written authoritative descriptions, identification keys, bibliographic information, and notes on ecology and distribution. Virtually all taxa are illustrated in carefully accurate black and white line drawings, and many are also represented in some 128 colour photographs and two original watercolour paintings.
