'Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds'
Putting Australia on the map by Carole Wilkinson
Call Number: 912.94 WIL
Publication Date: 2020
Australia is a big place. It covers 7.7 million square kilometres. You would think it would be easy to find, but it stayed hidden from everyone but its first people for a very long time. Australia's coastline was discovered piece by piece. Mapping the coastline was a task that took hundreds of years. See who got it right and who didn't as, bit by bit, the outline of Australia appeared in Putting Australia on the Map.
Sherlock Bones and the sea-creature feature by Renee Treml
Call Number: JF TRE
Publication Date: 2020
Hi there, I'm Sherlock Bones. I'm a frogmouth skeleton (really) and a mystery-solving superstar! With my trusty partners, silent Watts and sassy Grace, I'm here to solve the mystery of the monster in the museum. And we have a new side-kick, but he can be tricky to keep track of. Join us for another super-fun adventure as we seek out the monster and save the museum. You might not be able to hear Watts, because he's technically a stuffed parrot, but I always know what he's thinking. And right now he's thinking: can we solve the mystery of the monster in the museum?
Influence by Sara Shepard
Call Number: F SHE
Publication Date: 2020
Annie LeBlanc Delilah is Internet-famous, in LA and at the start of something incredible. Everything is going to change . . . but not necessarily in the way she imagines. Jasmine is a child star turned media darling. Her selfies practically break Instagram. But if the world knew who Jasmine really was? Cancelled. Fiona is everyone's best friend, always smiling. But on the inside? The girl's a hot mess. If they discovered her secret, it wouldn't just embarrass her: it would ruin her. Scarlet isn't just styled to perfection: she is perfection with a famous boyfriend and an online fanbase devouring her every move. But every perfect thing has a fatal flaw. To everyone clicking, DMing, following and faving, these girls are living the dream; but are they really? The sun is hot in California . . . and someone's going to get burned.
Gear hero by Brandon Terrell
Call Number: GR TER
Publication Date: 2019
Nelson Greenwood loves BMX racing, almost as much as he loves to draw superheroes. The hero of his own comic book, Major Speed, isn't afraid of anything, much like Nelson's twin brother Nick. Nelson looks up to Nick and his mad BMX skills. But when a rough crash keeps Nick out of the BMX-Treme Competition, he suggests that Nelson take his place. However, Nelson doesn't think he has what it takes to compete against the best racers in the city - especially Nick's nemesis, Cain Otto. Can Nelson shift gears and muster the courage and strength of Major Speed to compete in the race?.
Day break by Amy McQuire
Call Number: F MCQ
Publication Date: 2021
Day Break is the story of a family making their way back to Country on January 26. We see the strength they draw from being together, and from sharing stories as they move through a shifting landscape. The story refocuses the narratives around 'Australia Day' on Indigenous survival and resistance, and in doing so honours the past while looking to the future.
