The Moonlight Bird and the Grolken

Illustrated by Lois Bury
Available from Hobart Bookshop. Can be ordered through other bookshops and the IP website.

“For the Grolken in all of us, Anne Morgan’s magical, touching story reminds us what happens when we try to possess the things we love, whether it’s for our own unmindful pleasure, or even ‘to keep them safe’. And that the mightiest act of love, as the Grolken learns from his own loss of liberty, is to let them go and set them free. A delightful read for big people and little, especially under a full moon.” – Merridy Eastman

“The Moonlight Bird and the Grolken is a charming new fairy tale. The Grolken spies upon the Moonlight Bird and finally carries her off to his den. But as in all good fairy tales, love overcomes the darkness, so that there is a gentle and touching end to the story. The creative and lyrical use of both language and illustration make this picture book a delight to read aloud or to oneself.” – Carol Ann Martin

“‘Freedom can never be truly appreciated until you lose it.’ In this simple story of freedom and loss, we begin to understand that loss in a safe and hopeful way. Anne Morgan and Lois Bury have captured the essence of that journey in this beautifully poignant story.” – Christina Booth

The Captain Clawbeak Series

The Clawbeak  books are funny, pacy adventure stories for children aged 5-12, with a treasure trove of illustrations by Wayne Harris. The salty old cracker, Captain Clawbeak, has been known to capture and hold to ransom the imagination of even the most reluctant readers. Even a shipload of bloodthirsty, octogenarian pirates has been known to trade in their rusty cutlasses for library cards after getting hooked (?!) on reading by the Clawbeak books. The Clawbeak series build on the adventure stories of yore in a way that will appeal to today’s beginning readers and inspire them to embark on a lifetime of reading adventures.
