Beamer: Am I One of You?

Donna Herewini

A playful dog called Beamer wanders around the farm trying to work out which group he belongs to. Is he a galah? Or a kangaroo? Or a chicken? He tries to act like them, but he soon realises he’s not the same as them. Who does he belong to?

After a while he works it out. He goes in the car to pick up the mail, he relaxes in a comfy armchair, and he sits at the table for dinner with Mum and Dad. He must be a human!

Beamer is beautifully illustrated with high-quality pictures. The story is interesting, original and humorous.

Soft cover, 26 pages, illustrated

Timid Drip

Desmond O’Neill

“No longer will I face a taunt. My mind no longer will you haunt.”

The bullied water-drop, Timid Drip, cries out in a rebellious rage, before disappearing. Like every playground flooded with tides of emotion, the Atherton Tablelands waterfall scene, the water-drops’ playground, is no different. Water-drops, dripping with guilt, mount a search for one of their own in a unique, photographic journey.

Discover how the water-drops work together to soak the Atherton Tablelands and beyond with the most glorious rain seen in ages. Just like the rain, the story will stay with you.

From children in a playground to adventurers near and far, Timid Drip will travel with you, as we all combine to preserve the beautiful Nature we deserve to have.

Soft cover, 52 pages, illustrated with the author’s photographs of the Atherton Tablelands.

Celia Berrell

Seventy-one fun-sized portions of biology, chemistry, physics and earth sciences relevant to the primary science curriculum are accurately served in short bursts of verse. These engaging analogies and entertaining rhymes provide an easy way to absorb some scintillating science by thoughtfully connecting with our curiosity.

Hibiscus in a Hurry is rudely impatient. Don’t Eat Concrete has us falling over ourselves. Do Dolphins Kiss? is rather a nosey question. However, you’re always welcome on a Chocolate Box Planet.

The poems have been illustrated by humorous drawings designed to increase children’s interest in science and provide interesting information about science, as applied to everyday life.
