Eliza & The White Camellia
Sarah Hart was pregnant with her second child when her husband, bricklayer Edward Hart, stole food to feed his hungry family. On the run for 17 months, when captured he served six years on board prison hulks. After his release the family searched for a better life and found it offered by the New Zealand Company, arriving in 1841, the year after the Treaty of Waitangi was signed.

Eliza was their first New Zealander, born in 1846. A mother of 12, she became a suffragist and actively sought the vote for women, which was granted after a `monster petition' was presented to Parliament in 1893.

Girls in the Kapa Haka
Girls in the Kapa Haka
New Zealand's favourite story celebrating the Maori performing art of kapa haka is great for the whanau to read together!


These are the poi that circled and twirled
above the heads of the singing girls
who wore the piupiu that swished and swirled,
made from the flax that Koro cut,
that the mussel shell scraped,
that the kuia made,
that swung from the hips
of the girls in the kapa haka.

Gladys Goes To War
Gladys Goes To War
A stunning picture book from the award-winning Glyn Harper and Jenny Cooper, bringing us the incredible true story of Gladys Sandford - mechanic, First World War ambulance driver, New Zealand's first woman pilot and a trailblazer ahead of her time . . .

Gladys loves nothing better than tinkering with car engines and driving at top speed. She also dreams of learning to fly a plane. But it's 1914 and people, especially her mother, keep reminding her that women are not supposed to be adventurous. When war comes, Gladys offers her services at the front as an ambulance driver. She receives an infuriating response from the War Office-
'This will be a short war and women will not be needed. If you want to help the war effort you should stay at home and knit socks and balaclavas.'
But Gladys is not the kind of person who stays home and knits. She is determined to go to war.
**********
There are many stories about men who enlisted and courageously fought for their ideals. In Gladys Goes to War, the award-winning team of Glyn Harper and Jenny Cooper brings us the amazing true story of Gladys Sandford, ambulance driver, adventurer and trailblazer. Amongst her lifetime of heroic achievements, she actively served in the First World War and was the first female to gain a pilot's licence in New Zealand.
Glyn Harper discovered and researched Gladys's story and his account of her exciting life will captivate children of all ages. Brought to life with Jenny Cooper's exuberant illustrations, Glady Goes to War will cause readers to wonder why they haven't heard of Gladys before now.
