Yep, the only talking dog in Australia and perhaps, the world, is here again with more adventures and misadventures. Selby valiantly tries to keep his gift of the gab a secret. After all, if his owners, the Trifles, find out that their pet pooch can talk, they might ask him to do chores like answer the telephone or do the shopping. Worse still, they might hand him over to snoopy scientists and he’d spend the rest of his life answering stupid questions. So Selby has vowed to keep his trap shut - even if it kills him! But only fast talking can save him when he’s caught in a cage with Two-Tooth Tina, or is about to be dumped over a cliff, or is going to be sliced into Selby-salami by a gigantic saw blade which is whirring closer and closer...Yikes!

254 pages. Nero is no ordinary dog. His bravery has earned the respect of all the Dogs of Pompeii. But, as he's the first to admit, he has a talent for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Trapped in a delivery van heading for Rome, he encounters a sinister stranger who, to avoid capture by the police, clamps a collar on Nero - not a dog collar, but a priceless Vatican treasure. Lost in Rome, and pursued by the insane Otto and his unlikely accomplice Edith, Nero seeks out his young friend Gianni - but no one can discover the secret of the clasp and the collar remains locked around Nero's neck. The crooks will stop at nothing, including decapitation, to retrieve their loot. Nero, Caroline and Gianni are reunited in another action packed adventure as they dodge Otto and Edith - a night in the creepy caverns of the Colosseum, the abduction of Caroline's best friend Didi, a ransom drop at dawn in the ruins of Rome's ancient forum, and a life-or-death climax which finds our heroes lost in the maze of catacombs far beneath the Eternal City. NERO GOES TO ROME is the continuing story of Nero and THE DOGS OF POMPEII, in which our heroes find that treasure can turn up where you least expect it.

Stanley and Sophie, Jennings, Kate
18 Jennings, Kate Stanley and Sophie
Australia Vintage 2009 1741667518 / 9781741667516 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
192 pages. A wise, wry book about two border terriers, by the keenly intelligent, prize-winning writer who lost her heart to them. A fiercely intelligent writer, an astute observer of people and her surroundings, a recent widow not ready to face her grief, an irascible Australian with no time for indulgent New Yorkers and their pampered pets, Kate Jennings falls hard. Swept off her feet and surprised by the depth of her love, Jennings's life is suddenly overtaken by Stanley and when she is seduced into getting him a companion, by the pair of them. First and foremost, Stanley and Sophie is a book about animals, but it is also about grief and grieving - for Jennings's husband, for the city after 9/11, for the world. And it is a book about the way two rivalrous, demanding, idiosyncratic, exhilarating dogs gave Jennings daily purpose and showed her the way to her own heart. Kate Jennings, a poet, essayist, and novelist, comes from the Riverina. She attended Sydney University in the late 1960s, where she gained notoriety as a feminist activist. She moved to New York City in 1979. Her novel SNAKE (1996) was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, as was MORAL HAZARD (2002), which was based on her experiences as a Wall Street speechwriter. Her work has been in contention for the Booker, IMPAC, and Los Angeles Times literary prizes. She has won the prestigious Christina Stead and Adelaide Festival prizes and been honored with the Australian Literary Society's gold medal.
