re-printing and recycling

Nothing beats having an out-of-print book being given a second chance!

So I'm delighted that one of my favourite stories, Party Time! (Aussie Nibble) is now part of a collection re-published by Penguin and entitled My Best Book of Nibbles - 5 Great Stories for Girls. The other four stories and authors are:
 Julia Lawrinson (the Girl who Fell into a Book), Ursula Dubosarsky ( The Magic Wand), Jane Godwin (When Anna Slept Over)  and Raewyn Caisley (The Mermaid's Tail).

Also Hoosh! Camels in Australia is up and running again! A CBCA Honour award-winning book, it is  packed full of camel facts, but also much space is given to the vital importance camels played in the early development of the Australian outback. So it's full of history too. Plenty of photos. Great resource for the new National Curriculum!
Books can be purchased from me either through PAYPAL on my website: - or contact me by email: or phone: (08) 82945703 . ($20 plus $6.95 package and posting in Australia)

What do you recycle? I love to recycle whenever I can.
Here's a stack of seven, stripy scarves  I knitted using scraps of wool bought from Op-shops! I had pleasure taking them to Anglicare yesterday as part of their Winter Warmth Appeal.


  1. Love your clever recycling! You are using your creativity to think of new ways to republish work- so important. I recycle with gardening mostly and craft!x

  2. I love working with recycled crockery/tiles/ and found objects in my mosaics. Not only do I love the fact that these objects have had a former life, I think it allows me to create in a freer way, knowing the materials weren't too costly. (if at all!)
    And there's so many ways to recycle in the garden! xx
