ANIMAL STARS

Jackie French, illustrated by Bruce Whatley

OLDER READER FICTION

Praise for The Dog Who Loved a Queen: `In Jackie French's inimitable style this is a very readable account of the last years of one of the most romantic figures in English history... I applaud the skill with which Jackie evokes the time.' Magpies

Each book in the Animal Stars series is a factual narrative about a real animal associated with an important person in history. The Dog Who Loved a Queen: To the world outside her luxurious prison, Mary Queen of Scots was either a shameless beauty who killed her husband, or the rightful queen of England and Scotland, tragically held captive by Elizabeth the First. But to the dog who loved her, Mary was simply his mistress, and the centre of his world. Based on the true story of the dog who was with Mary when she died, The Dog Who Loved a Queen is a fascinating tale of religious bigotry and terrorism, plots and passion, and the unquestioning loyalty of a small Scottish terrier. The Goat that Sailed the World: Captain Cook's goat had already sailed around the world before it went on its first voyage with Cook, and helped save everyone on board the ship from scurvy. As well as telling the story of this less-than-famous goat, the book looks at the great sea explorations of the eighteenth century, including Cook's voyage to Australia. The Camel Who Crossed Australia The humans called him Bell Sing. But to the other camels he is known as He Who Spits Further than the Wind. Transported from his beloved Afghan plains and mountains to Australia, Bell Sing is forced to join the baggage train for famous nineteenth-century explorers Burke and Wills as they embark on an expedition to cross the continent from south to north for the first time. The Donkey Who Carried the Wounded (April 2009) Based on the famous story of Simpson and his Donkey - the remarkable life of the man and the donkey who become a legend at Gallipoli, even among the Turkish forces.

KAIMANAWA PRINCESS

Dianne Haworth

YOUNG READER FICTION

Dianne Haworth is an awardwinning journalist and author of adult sporting books and biographies, and is a leading local biographer. An experienced editor and journalist, she edits Animal Voice for the SPCA, and is a devoted animal lover. Paddy the Wanderer was her first work for children.

Can one girl and her pony save the wild horses? Through a fog of steam rising from the group of terrified wild horses huddled together, Becky saw her standing alone, a beautiful black Kaimanawa pony with four white socks and a distinctive white blaze running the length of her nose... When Becky chose her pony at the stockyards she had no idea how hard it was going to be. Hard to train a wild horse, hard to compete with the expensive mounts at the pony club, and hard to stand by silently when the wild herds were threatened. At stake would be the survival of New Zealand's famous wild horses ­ the Kaimanawa ­ who had lived free for more than a century. As Becky forged a bond of love and trust with the little pony she named Kaimanawa Princess, powerful interests began to unite in an effort to eliminate the wild herds. And when the time came, the young girl and her pony took their place in the struggle to save the wild horses. A remarkable novel based in the true events that bought the plight of the wild horses of the Kaimanawa to public attention. September 2008 9781869507046 180 x 128mm PB 174pp Rights: World BACKLIST TITLE: Paddy the Wanderer The true story of the dog who captured the heart of a city. A well researched and endearing non-fiction account of an amazing Airedale who captured public imagination during the Great Depression. Like Scotland's Greyfriar's Bobby, Paddy mourned the loss of his human, in his case a little mistress who died of pneumonia, but instead of haunting a graveyard, Paddy headed for the waterfront. There he became a favourite of the watersiders and seamen. And he certainly got around ­ taken on board ship and crossing the Tasman, travelling around coastal ports and even flying in a Gypsy. He was also rumoured to have made it to San Francisco and back. Formally adopted by the Harbour Board, his official title was Assistant Night Watchman responsible for Pirates, Smugglers and Rodents. On his death his funeral procession brought Wellington to a standstill. Not bad for a stray dog. May 2007 9781869506254 180 x 128mm 174pp Rights: World

Humphrey Bogart's got nothing on this rat! Inspector Octavius O'Malley is on the case. It started with some missing cobblestones and a bump on the head of one of Rodent City's young police rats. But this time it's not the mice who are to blame ... and even botching the investigation and losing his job can't stop Rodent City's finest detective (self-confessed) from pursuing the case. A rat has to pay the rent, so Ocko hangs out his shingle as a private investigator. His first client wants him to find her missing son, whose workplace has special significance for our doughnut-lovin' hero. Could there be a link between the two mysteries?! When Ocko's informant - a downand-out moggy named Mulligan - puts him on the unsavoury scent of a creepy cat cult, things get dicey indeed for Ocko, Spencer and Patrick.
