"A new Bri Lee book is always something to get excited about and I devoured this in a day. Written in her eloquent, accessible, sharply intelligent prose, Who Gets to be Smart is a powerful and often shocking examination of Australia’s education system and how its elite institutions reserve access to knowledge and power to a privileged few. Elegantly weaving her own experiences and insights into the book, Bri isn’t afraid to examine her own privilege and presumptions around education. This is essential reading and Bri is one of the most exciting voices writing in Australia today."

"Inspired by an extraordinary true story, Where the Heart Is is the tale of the friendship between Dindim the Magellanic penguin and his rescuer, Joao. Dindim's story filled my heart with joy and I loved the colourful illustrations which captured the friendship and beauty of the natural world in such a special way."

"When Melodie awakes at Direleafe Hall, she becomes friends with the three school ghosts, Lucy, Florence and Nell, and believes she now too is a ghost (but isn’t sad about it). The school quickly becomes her new home, and her new friends like family. When the Lady in White buys the school and plans to destroy it, Melodie and the girls must do all they can to protect it. Perfect for ages 7+, this is a beautifully written novel from Kate Gordon, who has once again created a world little readers will love."
