Pick up virtually any textbook on vertebrate evolution and you will find mention of the curious reptile known as tuatara (Sphenodon). The special evolutionary status of tuatara as the last of the rhynchocephalians - one of the four orders of living reptiles - is unquestioned. Wild members of the sole living species are now restricted to a few dozen remote islands around the New Zealand coast, where for several centuries they have been observed and studied by humans. But are tuatara really unchanged 'living fossils', or close relatives of dinosaurs, as sometimes portrayed?

This is the first detailed monograph for decades about this enigmatic reptile, and the first to be illustrated in colour throughout. The evolution, natural history and conservation of tuatara are covered in comprehensive detail, providing a valuable resource for the specialist yet in a style accessible to a wide readership. The special place of tuatara in Maori and popular culture is also considered. Tuatara have survived alongside humans for more than 700 years, though with their numbers much reduced; what are their future prospects in a globally changing world?

In this lavishly illustrated book, Canterbury gardener, Margaret Long, tells the fascinating story of Frensham, considered one of New Zealand’s finest gardens. As though we are right there with her, the reader is taken on a tour through the seasons, listening as we go to Margaret’s thoughts and insights about why this plant was placed here or that tree there, what is behind her choices not just of plantings but also structures, materials, colours. This very personal and yet informative perspective on thirty years of gardening with passion makes for a delightful book to be treasured and shared. Highly acclaimed garden photographer, Juliet Nicholas, has “lived” with Frensham for an entire year, photographing its changes through the months and the seasons and providing a unique insight into the growth and development of these beautiful gardens, as well as capturing one of the most frequently written comments in Frensham’s visitors’ book: ‘The garden is so peaceful’. https://www.book2look.com/book/9780995105324

Preschool children are fascinated to see the real life tractors and machines in this 40 minute film introduced by their favourite farm cartoon, Tractor Ted.



Our top selling title packed full of the things we like best - Tractors!

A big transporter takes it off to the agricultural merchants while Tractor Ted's friend, Les shows us his shiny new tractor. Poor Les, his day doesn't end well when he finds a water leak and ends up getting very wet! Children can see tractors at work doing all sorts of jobs like lifting, pushing, pulling and one or two extremely smelly jobs that always make kids giggle!



Tractor Ted has lots of interaction with the children as he pops up on screen to narrate the real life action. He encourages them to listen, count, read and sing to the film and they pick up lots of great knowledge while loving it.
