Tea and Sugar Christmas

Tea and Sugar Christmas

Jane Jolly ,  Robert Ingpen

$24.99

'The Tea and Sugar train only came once a week on a Thursday. But the special Christmas train only came once a year. Today was Sunday. Four more days without sugar. Four more days until the Christmas train. Please, please be on time. Please don't be late.'

Join Kathleen in the outback as she eagerly awaits the Christmas Tea and Sugar  train. Will she meet Father Christmas? Will she receive a Christmas gift from  him? A  delightful, heart-warming story from the National Library of Australia that  will intrigue, captivate and introduce readers to a slice of the past. Wonderful, sensitive illustrations, including a beautiful double fold-out image showing  the shops inside all the carriages.

For 81 years, from 1915 to 1996, the Tea and Sugar Train travelled from Port Augusta to Kalgoorlie once a week. It serviced the settlements along the Nullarbor Plain, a 1050-km long rail link. It was a lifeline. There were no shops or services in these settlements. The train carried everything they needed - household goods, groceries, fruit and vegetables, a butcher's van, banking facilities and at one time even a theatrette car for showing films. 

The biggest excitement for the children was the first Thursday of December every year, when Father Christmas travelled the line. He distributed gifts to all the children on the way, including those of railway workers, those in isolated communities, and station kids.

Laurinda is an exclusive school for girls. At its hidden centre of power is The Cabinet, a triangle of girls who wield power over their classmates - and some of their teachers.

As she watches The Cabinet in action, and is courted by them - as she learns about power and repression - Lucy finds herself in a battle for her identity and integrity.

Few genres are more enthralling than the school story. In Laurinda, the acclaimed Alice Pung tells an involving, original story that captures the drama and pain of school life today, as well as revealing much about the choices of young women.

William Joyce ,  William Joyce

$10.90  $9.25

Beware a tooth fairy queen scorned in this, the third chapter book of Academy Award winner William Joyce's The Guardians series. There's a lot more to this tooth-swiping sprite than meets the eye!

When last we heard, the Guardians were resting easy with the knowledge that the children of Santoff Clausen were finally safe from Pitch's dastardly plans. But is it all a ruse, a scheme, a lull the evil Nightmare King has deviously concocted?

Whatever Pitch's plans, what he doesn't know is that there's a new Guardian in town, and she's not the type to forget old grudges. Actually, she's not the type to forget anything--because this Guardian is none other than Toothiana, the Tooth Fairy herself. She's fierce and fast and crossing her will lead to a multitude of troubles. And, it turns out that, well, all those teeth she has been collecting? They contain memories. The forgotten memories of childhood... including the memories of how to fly.

Young Katherine is hopeful that these memories might help her to remember her parents. The Guardians hope they'll offer even further protection from Pitch. You can see how this information would be invaluable to our heroes. ?But it could also be invaluable to Pitch...
