THE HAIRY-NOSED WOMBATS FIND A NEW HOME is a charmingly humorous picture book for young children about the endangered hairy nosed wombat and the search for a new home for them. Ages: 4-8 Once upon a time, deep underground, there was a colony of wonderfully whiskery wombats who all had hairy noses. They lived in the only home for Hairy-nosed Wombats in the world. Could there ever be another home for Hairy-noses? Created by wombat-loving and award-winning duo, author and Australian Children's Laureate Jackie French and illustrator Sue deGennaro, this is the (almost) true story of how finding a happy new home for Hairy-nosed Wombats helped one of the world's most endangered species to breed and thrive again. All author royalties are being donated towards wombat research and care.

When Thea Wyndham and Mitchell Baker learn they've been named joint guardians for their late friends' three children, they're little more than acquaintances. Barely polite acquaintances, at that. Something about Mitch's forthright intensity has always left ad exec Thea feeling off-balance, while Mitch makes no secret of his disdain when Thea offers him financial assistance if he'll take sole guardianship.
The Journey Home is a collection of 100 poems written in the traditional poetic form of rhyme and time. Many of the poems are based upon true life experiences, expressions of desperation and struggle, heartache and heart break, in the remembrance or thinking of either someone or a beloved pet, some are as a result of an personal existing mood frame or purely based upon a factual point in time, some are political view points or messages to those involved in the political system and a few are entirely fictional written simply from imagination. All of the combined poems are a journey through life, my life or our lives and the words are uniquely portrayed in perfect poetic context in rhyme and time creating a journey through life.. Each poem has a beginning, a middle and an ending whilst at the same time cleverly flows remaining on the subject matter without diversion. This book is the first book to express my minds abilities to write truely poetically and not merely in prose, ode, or ballad form. Self contained structures all simple, easy to understand and read is the main aim whilst at the same time hopefully ensuring a message as concise as possible is given. These poems will be plondered upon undoubtedly and repetively for years to come by those who enjoy the love of poetry. The ability to both relate and correlate will be experienced by the reader in not one of the poems but many of them. The undying devotion to create and express shines throughout this book from page to page and poem to poem.
