by Favel Parret

A young cub is suddenly snatched from his family and home by a giant eagle, then dropped, injured and alone in a suburban garden. This is where he meets his first human and begins his long journey to becoming the most famous dingo in the world. He will never see his mountain home again, or his family. But it is his destiny to save Alpine dingoes from extinction, and he dreams of a time when all cubs like him can live in the wild in safety instead of facing poison and bullets and hatred

Fiction – Upper primary

Beast: Face to face with the Florida Bigfoot

By Watt Key

Adam says he can’t remember where he was for the two months he went missing in a Florida swamp. That’s not true. He does remember. He also hasn’t forgotten why he went into the swamp in the first place: One night, he was driving with his parents and the car crashed when his father swerved to avoid colliding with a giant Sasquatch-like creature standing in the highway. Haunted by his parents’ subsequent disappearance and hounded for claiming to have seen Bigfoot, Adam sets off into the deadly wilderness on a hunt for answers as to what really happened that night. The answers he finds are more terrifying — and more surprising — than he could have imagined. Adam can only wish he didn’t remember anything at all.

Graphic Novel
