74 Signed Copy of ‘Horse Mad’ – Dianne Wolfer

Item: Signed Copy of ‘Horse Mad’

Details:

Book Information: When Bay wakes up on her eighth birthday she discovers she can no longer neigh, and that when she tosses her mane it’s just hair. Bay tries everything to regain her horsiness. She stamps her feet, swishes her tail and feasts on carrots, but nothing works. And if she isn’t a horse, how can she be a member of the Pony Club?

Gently told, delightfully presented, Horse Mad beautifully captures the guileless, sweet ability of very young children to enter their own private world – Magpies

Brief Bio: I have always been a bookworm and I’m sure that has helped in my writing I’ve kept some stories from primary school, but I didn’t begin writing seriously until I left school. My first book, Dolphin Song was published in 1995. Now I have 11 books in print with more on the way. My books are about things that interest me; different cultures, the environment, friendship, being brave, turns in the road and taking chances. I like trying to explore things from different perspectives. Three of my books are written from more than one point of view: Dolphin Song, Choices and Photographs in the Mud. I read or write every day and can’t imagine a world without books.

98 Signed Copy of ‘Lighthouse Girl’ – Dianne Wolfer

Item: Signed Copy of ‘Lighthouse Girl’

Details:

Book Information: Fay lives alone with her father on bleak, windswept Breaksea Island, but her isolated life takes a dramatic turn with the outbreak of World War I.

Fay collects the messages of lonely soldiers heading to the front line. She is their last hope of getting messages telegraphed back home. After their departure for the battlefields of Egypt and Gallipoli, she follows their fortunes and continues her long distance conversations with letters and postcards. Then one day, a single, sad telegram arrives, and the war is brought brutally home.

Based on the true story of Faye Howe, this gentle tale brings to life the hardships of those left at home during the war – waiting, wondering, hoping. Drawing on fascinating archival material, and interweaving fact with fiction, award-winning author Dianne Wolfer deftly recreates this period in Australian history from the perspective of a young girl.

A beautifully designed and illustrated chapter book that will bring smiles to many readers’ faces. Highly recommended for early and mid-primary readers. Reading Time

…this engaging story will strike a chord with anyone who has ever felt embarrassed by their family (and who hasn’t?!). But the animals are the stars of this book and there’s a heap of info and contact numbers at the back Magpies
