Little Bilby's Aussie Easter Egg Hunt by Yvonne Mes, Illustrated by Jody Pratt

LITTLE BILBY’S AUSSIE EASTER EGG HUNT by Yvonne Mes, illustrated by Jody Pratt

Ages 0-5

A group of baby bilbies are on an Easter egg hunt. They find all kinds of eggs - a kookaburra's egg, a turtle's egg, a cassowary's egg - before the little bilbies finally find what they've been looking for: Easter eggs to share with all their friends.

This colourfully illustrated picture book showcases the diversity of Australia's egg-laying animals. Each spread reveals an egg in its natural environment and asks the question 'Whose egg could this be?'. After turning the page, the egg is matched with the animal it belongs to.

Winterborne Home for Vengeance and Valour by Ally CarterWINTERBORNE HOME FOR VENGEANCE AND VALOUR by Ally Carter

Ages 9-11

When 11-year-old April joins a group of kids living at Winterborne Home she doesn't expect to be there for very long. But she soon learns that this home isn't like any of the others - especially when she unearths the secret of the missing-and-presumed-dead billionaire, Gabriel Winterborne, who is neither missing nor dead but is actually living in a basement lair, sharpening his swords and looking for vengeance.

Now that April knows Gabriel Winterborne is alive, she must turn to the other orphans to keep him that way. As a looming new danger threatens to take Gabriel down once and for all, they must use their individual talents to find a way to make sure this home for misfits isn't lost to them for ever.

Because at the Winterborne Home, nothing is what it seems, no one is who they say they are and nowhere is safe. And now a ragtag group of orphans must unravel the riddle of a missing heir, a supposed phantom and a secret key, all without alerting the adults of Winterborne House that trouble is afoot.

Rose agrees to help Merdyn navigate the confusing ways of the modern world (things like: the lidded bowl in the bathroom is NOT a sink, it's a TOILET, so definitely DON'T wash your face in it) if Merdyn gives her a spell to fix her family in return.

Now they just need to hide him in the shed without Rose's mum noticing, track down Merdyn's magic staff and find a way to send Merdyn back through time to the Dark Ages. What could possibly go wrong...?
