    I love hands!

    Hands to clap, or high-five your mate.

    Amelia Westlake meets My Favorite Murder in this debut from a terrific new voice in Australian YA. Combines a realistic story about high school drama and toxic friendship with true crime - the endlessly fascinating Somerton Man or Taman Shud mystery.

    15-year-old Lara Laylor feels like supporting character in her own life. She's Ashley's best friend, she's Hannah's sister-she's never just Lara.

    When new history teacher Mr. Grant gives her an unusual assignment: investigating the mystery of the Somerton Man. Found dead in on an Adelaide beach in 1948, a half-smoked cigarette still in his mouth and the labels cut out of his clothes, the Somerton Man has intrigued people for years. Was he a spy? A criminal? Year 10 has plenty of mysteries of its own: boys, drama queen friends, and enigmatic new students. When they seem just as unsolvable as a 60-year-old cold case, Lara finds herself spending more and more time on the assignment. But Mr Grant himself may be the biggest mystery of all...

    Interspersed with fictionalised snapshots of the Somerton Man investigation, ALL THAT IMPOSSIBLE SPACE is a coming of age novel exploring toxic friendships and the balance of power between teacher and student, perfect for fans of Cath Crowley and Fiona Wood.

    The new Australian go-to book for parents wanting help with THAT talk ...

    For the last forty years, Peter Mayle's WHERE DID I COME FROM? has been the go-to book for parents seeking help with the birds and the bees talk.

    In 2015, Australian cartoonist Fiona Katauskas will publish a thoroughly modern book on this timeless subject.

    THE AMAZING TRUE STORY OF HOW BABIES ARE MADE is Fiona's brilliant response to finding herself reading the same sex-ed book to her son as her mother had read to her. That book is, of course, Peter Mayle's 1973 bestseller, a classic picture book that has helped millions of parents and teachers around the world navigate those tricky questions about how babies are made.

    Fiona's book captures all the elements that made WHERE DID I COME FROM? such a success: it's funny, it's warm, it's straightforward and it's the perfect helping hand for carers. But things have changed since the seventies, and Fiona's book is exactly what modern parents have been waiting for!
