Truganini by Cassandra Pybys

Truganini, by Cassandra Pybus

'Do we have, at last, the definitive story of Truganini, who found fame as the ‘last of the Tasmanian Aborigines’ when she died in 1876? Cassandra Pybus believes that Australians should know how this Aboriginal woman lived, not simply that she died.’ - Jennifer Somerville

Dear Parents, by Gabbie StroudDear Parents by Gabbie Stroud

'Dear parents: you need to read this book. Gabbie Stroud’s newest book is one which needs to be included in every child’s ‘Starting School Pack’. Perhaps if we can get parents to understand the role of teachers as soon as their little darlings begin their educational journey, things will change. And things need to change – as Stroud explains through hilarious, yet truthful, tales.' - Gabrielle Jones
