THE BUNYIP IN
Meet The Megafauna by Elaine Ouston
This book is educational and introduces the young reader to Australia’s unique megafauna in an entertaining way. It is written as if the animals are introducing themselves to the reader.
The book was written at the request of school librarians who purchased my fantasy series for middle readers featuring the megafauna of Australia, The Mystery of Nida Valley. They asked for an entertaining book for younger readers with illustrations of the animals. A series of illustrated books will follow featuring two of the animals interacting as they would have in the wild.

KY! By Clancy Tucker
This award-winning, modern fiction novel deals with bullying, refugees, asylum seekers, sickness, sport, competing, friendships, racism and bigotry.
Rida Khalid is a Muslim refugee from Iran. She is bullied by two girls at school for wearing a hijab (Muslim headscarf), reading books and wearing glasses, and seeks refuge in an old man’s garden after school. Rida meets an Asian girl at school, Ky, who also loves books, but Rida soon dumps her for a gawky girl, Carmen, who teaches her about fitting in. To be accepted, Rida removes her hijab at school, but she must wear her headscarf whilst competing in the inter-school sports. Her family will attend.
Rida enters the State Athletics Championships, but two athletics clubs lodge an objection to her hijab. Rida is shocked when a retired Queens Counsel (QC) represents her at the Equal Opportunity Commission. Who is he? Will Rida win the case? Will she run in the State Championships? Will Ky beat leukaemia, and who owns the garden that Rida has used as a sanctuary?

Praise for Captured - The Mystery of Nida
Valley Series: Review by Cecilia Jansink
"Captured" is the second book in The Mystery of Nida Valley series, but even if, like myself, you haven't read the first; the events prior are explained enough that you won't be left feeling lost.
Our protagonist, Meg is an absolute delight to get to know and the adventure she takes us on will leave you on the edge of your seat. Packed to the brim with magic, mystery, the ultimate bad guy and unwavering friendship, "Captured" is the ultimate story to re-affirm or develop your love for all things fantasy.
The plot is timed perfectly and the world and characters are all well developed and the scenery vivid. This is truly and all ages book. While it is aimed at older children/young teens there is plenty to delight adults as well. The only downside? Well it will leave you desperate for more, and eagerly anticipating reading its predecessor.
Bring a little extra magic to your life and take the leap into Nida Valley - you won't regret it.
