A new series- The Selwood Boys.

 

The Selwood brothers are four of the AFL’s favourite sons.

Troy Selwood played for the Brisbane Lions from 2005 to 2010 and his twin brother, Adam Selwood, was a Premiership player for the West Coast Eagles.

Joel Selwood is a three-time Premiership player, five-time All-Australian, four-time AFLPA Most Courageous Player and the current captain of the Geelong Cats. Youngest brother, Scott Selwood, was vice-captain of the West Coast Eagles and their 2012 Best and Fairest, before joining Joel at Geelong in 2016.

Tony Wilson is the author of The Princess And The Packet Of Frozen Peas, The Cow Tripped Over The Moon, Emo The Emu and many more.

This is a series based around the lives of these brothers growing up in Victoria. It’s largely about football, family and good times. You don’t even have to love AFL to enjoy this series!

Meet Ruby Wishfingers by Deborah Kelly

Ruby Wishfingers is an ordinary girl with an extraordinary name. Only nobody else seems to think so. That is until Ruby Wishfingers wakes up with a strange feeling in the tips of her fingers. She soon finds out that there is far more to being a Wishfingers than having a funny name.

Ruby Wishfingers will take you on a magical adventure, featuring talking cats, jelly bean rain and pocket-sized unicorns.

 

Suitable for ages 6- 9 years

“You Choose” series by George Ivanoff

A brand-new series of interactive novels for the highly adventurous. Read if you dare! Mistakes will cost you dearly!

YOU CHOOSE is a series of interactive books where the reader gets to make key decisions about how the story progresses. Numerous intertwining story paths and a plethora of different endings (many of them resulting in certain death), combined with a variety of genres and an odd assortment of really weird characters should provide a roller-coaster ride of a reading adventure.

Although aimed at mid to upper primary level, these books can be enjoyed by readers of all ages.

Each book is a stand-alone story. They do not need to be read in any particular order.
