Everyone has demons. Few people admit to them, let alone conquer them. Because one person succumbed to his, a handsome young farmer, Scott Guy, was cut down in the prime of life in the driveway of his Feilding home on July 8, 2010. The tragedy held New Zealand spell bound - particularly the arrest and murder trial of Scott’s brother-in-law, Ewen MacDonald; the exposure of intimate details of the Guy family’s lives; and the dignity with which its patriarch, Bryan, conducted himself throughout.
Scott Guy is Bryan and Jo Guy’s story. It reveals much more than came out at the murder trial; it gives a uniquely intimate view of how the murder affected them, their family and friends. It discloses previously unknown details of what went on behind the scenes. It reveals how the Guys overcame their own personal demons, how they mined inner strength to cope with the stress, grief, fear and the heartbreak of not only the violent death of a cherished son, but of a series of personal catastrophes which followed.
They share their unique story in the hope of helping others struggling with the vagaries of life. This, they believe, may give meaning to the apparent senselessness of all that has happened within their family.

NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER.

SCOTT GUY: His Parents' Story of Love, Betrayal, Murder and Courage, reaches number 1 in the Nielsen Weekly Bestsellers List* and selling out fast.

''I've finished reading "Scott Guy" and am pretty blown away by it. I would recommend any of your customers grab a copy with both hands.

The Cockerel:
A noisy little cockerel
Would sing at break of day:
Dogs would bark, kids would cry
From bloody miles away.
Folk signed a petition
To say it wasn’t proper;
The cockerel said “Hey get a life!
I’m Bantam of the Opera”.
A collection of “Nice and Naughty” rhymes each illustrated with Garrick Tremain’s colourful characters.

“A fascinating journey through the nether regions” - Eric Newby
“Mr Tremain is very funny, but awfully untidy” - Mrs Tremain

About the Author:
For 20 of the past 25 years Garrick Tremain has been New Zealand's most widely published editorial cartoonist. He has enjoyed an avid daily readership in many regions of the country, most fervently in Otago, Canterbury and Nelson. This as an adjunct to his work as a successful landscape painter.
In recent years he has written and illustrated two books of comic verse. In 2005 he set out to write a book of nursery rhymes for children but could not resist putting a risque slant on most verses. Hence he titled it "NURSERY RHYMES MOTHER NEVER READ YOU". It quickly achieved Gold and Platinum status. Now in it's 6th edition it has sold over 15,000 copies.

All Arto der Haroutunian’s twelve cookbooks written in the 1980s became classics; it was his belief that the rich culinary tradition of the Middle East is the main source of many of our Western cuisines and his books were intended as an introduction to that tradition.
His Sweets & Desserts of the Middle East is regarded as the seminal work on the subject but it had been out of print for almost thirty years. At last here in a new edition is the Middle Eastern cookbook that everyone wants.
In this book he takes us on a sumptuous and erudite tour of one of the delights of Middle Eastern cuisine. Sweets and desserts occupy a special place in those lands where natutal food resources can sometimes be limited. The people have made supreme the art of creating delights from very little and in doing do have enriched their world with wafer-thin pastries, luscious halvas, crunchy biscuits, exotic fruits and cool refreshing sorbets.
Many Middle Eastern desserts are very sweet (literally soaked in honey or syrup) and yet their variety is infinite. It reflects the multifarious origins and races of the people of the region and combines ancient traditions and modern influences. One basic sweet may have been adapted in a dozen different ways.
Tantalisingly fragrant, sweet and succulent or dry and spiced with the aroma of the East they transport us as if by magic carpet to the exotic lands of the orient. There are recipes for sesame and date baklavas, almond and pistachio coated biscuits, tempting stuffed fruits, rich mousses, delicate sorbets and syrups, jams and preserves, all of which may tempt you to conjure up these Middle Eastern delicacies in your own home.
