95 pages including poetry and illustrations. Gleeful, gloomy, mischievous and manic, our canine friends often mirror our moods. In this collection of verse Barbara Blackman, best-selling author of Glass after Glass, unleashes her subversive sense of humour and displays acerbic wit and playful charm to capture the unique place of dogs in our lives and language. Dog lovers may recognise themselves and their companions among the lines. Whimsical sketches by artist Cheryl Westenberg bring this collection to life. Not necessarily for children Barbara says, but dog loathers and lovers will recognise themselves and their canines in this unusual new book.

We enjoy cartoons because they can take us away from our problems; they illustrate our dreams and fantasies and poke fun at everyday situations. When you draw cartoons you are the boss and you decide everything you design the main character, set up the gag, draw the supporting cast of characters, select the props, and choose the camera angle. So sit back relax, and let your mind go - because anything is possible in the world of cartooning!

Australia Rigby 1976 0851799051 / 9780851799056 1st Edition Hard Cover Good Good 12mo Bruce Wroth 
64 pages. The story of Bassendean and Guildford began in 1827, when Captain James Stirling watered his ship Success from a spring on what is now known as Success Hill. An infant colony began to struggle into existence in the area, and for this book Morva Cogan has told the stories of twenty-nine buildings and other features associated with the earliest days of settlement. They include Stirling Square, where the settlers once grazed their cattle; Peter Broun’s cottage named Bassendean; Woodbridge, where Guildford Grammar School began as a class in the billiard room in I896; the theatre which was originally a barracks; and the Rail Transport Museum, home of Katie, the locomotive built by Robert Stephenson and Company in England in I880. The manner in which these and other signi?cant features and buildings were established is told in a text which gives a fascinating portrait of the past, while Bruce Wroth’s drawings depict them as they are today. The combination of text and illustration forms a graphic por trayal of the development of one of Australia’s most historic areas.
