Dear School Librarian,

Thank you for taking the time to explore our book collection.  We have continued the Yelpy Kelpie series with our

new book, One Yelpy Kelpie in the Great Western Plains Adventure.  Following the success of One Yelpy Kelpie and One Yelpy Kelpie's

Melbourne and Wildlife Adventures we have decided that One Yelpy Kelpie is the character to take children on many more

adventures to come.

Aloysius the Ram at Chateau de Lalande is proving very popular and the proceeds are directly going to brain cancer research in children.


All our books are now listed on the Victorian Premier's Reading Challenge. Most are on the year 3/4 list, however as  

The Big Hungry Tree and Penelope Plume highlight additional elements of inclusion and ASD awareness,

they range from early childhood right through to year 9.  Of course you can help us stay on the list by recommendations from yourself and students.   We would of course love other states to take up the opportunity to put our books on their lists. 


Over the years we have discovered the importance of children identifying with Australian places and icons.  We endeavour to take them on a journey where imagination is the tour bus for their own adventure.  


We have been fortunate over the years to gain a wonderful response to all our books and many have repeatedly been on bestsellers lists.   More importantly however, is the positive feedback we have gained from children.


The Big Hungry Tree is a fun interactive children’s book, with additional elements such as a counting scale and

repetitive rhymes.  Ned the wombat reads the book with you and shares his unique thoughts.  Ned has

Aspergers Syndrome or ASD – Autism Spectrum Disorder.  Whilst Neds thoughts do not distract from the

story for mainstream children, it begins an awareness journey that is so important to those with ASD. 

Ned returns in the hilarious calamity that is created by Penelope Plume.    DARE TO BE ASD AWARE!

Thank you and I hope you consider adding our books to your library collection.
