"Magic is a fact of life, like murder, sex and monsters." So says Dinewan, the old aboriginal witch doctor with bright orange eyes. In this final installment of the Bunyip series, what began from family legend will culminate in a zoological hunt of the millennium. Tristram Jones and his teacher, Ivan MacAllister, must again contend with Dinewan. His tactics have become more dangerous and determined; the lines have been drawn and the stakes have never been higher. From the university to the wild high country, Tristram once again follows the call of the mysterious Bunyip. It will be the last time he does. Bunyip is a modern tale influenced by much older stories and spiced with science, legend and sensual experiences. It is gruesome in places, funny in others and tender where it counts. This book is intended for a mature readership and is not suitable for readers under the age of 18.

All three books in 'Bunyip', Tristan A. Smith's series of fantasy novels inspired by Australian mythology, now in one volume. Modern tales influenced by much older stories and spiced with science, legend and sensuality, these novels will appeal to anyone who loves a good fantasy adventure or is interested in Australian folklore! The Witch Doctor's Opal: Tristram Jones is given an opal by his dying grandfather. Little does he know its connection to an old aboriginal witch doctor with bright orange eyes. He is Dinewan - meaning Emu - taken from the Great Spirit of the Dreamtime. Stretching across generations, the stories swirling around Tristram and the opal are connected to the fabled monster of the billabong: the Bunyip. Scottish highlanders, bushrangers, and an old Chinese goldminer each play their part in a family legend that seems doomed to end in blood. But is Dinewan just a wicked and bitter misfit, or something far more marvelous, and dangerous? A Web Of Stories: Life spins stories around us as we slide through time, anchored by our secrets. Tristram Jones's opal is of deep significance to his teacher, Ivan MacAllister: a compelling and charismatic mentor haunted by a trauma caused by the witch doctor, Dinewan. Tristram is haunted too, by dreams of a terrifying monster that feel more like memories. As a web of stories surrounds Tristram and Ivan, the truth of them must come out as life goes on with adventure, romance and danger. The witch doctor is coming, and he will have his due.

This volume focuses on the (de)canonization processes in children’s literature, considering the construction and cultural-historical changes of canons in different children’s literatures. Chapters by international experts in the field explore a wide range of different children’s literatures from Great Britain, Germany, Scandinavia, the Low Countries, Eastern and Central Europe, as well as from Non-European countries such as Australia, Israel, and the United States. Situating the inquiry within larger literary and cultural studies conversations about canonicity, the contributors assess representative authors and works that have encountered changing fates in the course of canon history. Particular emphasis is given to sociological canon theories, which have so far been under-represented in canon research in children’s literature. The volume therefore relates historical changes in the canon of children’s literature not only to historical changes in concepts of childhood but to more encompassing political, social, economic, cultural, and ideological shifts. This volume’s comparative approach takes cognizance of the fact that, if canon formation is an important cultural factor in nation-building processes, a comparative study is essential to assessing transnational processes in canon formation. This book thus renders evident the structural similarities between patterns and strategies of canon formation emerging in different children’s literatures.

The saga of Australia continues with ... GIRT NATION David Hunt tramples the tall poppies of the past in charting Australia’s transformation from aspiration to nation –an epic tale of charlatans and costermongers, of bush bards and bushier beards, of workers and women who weren’t going to take it anymore. Girt Nation introduces Alfred Deakin, the Liberal necromancer whose dead advisors made Australia a better place to live, and Banjo Paterson, the jihadist who called on God and the Prophet to drive the Australian infidels from the Sudan ‘like sand before the gale’. And meet Catherine Helen Spence, the feminist polymath who envisaged a utopian future of free contraceptives, easy divorce and immigration restrictions to prevent the ‘Chinese coming to destroy all we have struggled for!’ Thrill as Jandamarra leads the Bunuba against Western Australia, and Valentine Keating leads the Crutchy Push, an all-amputee street gang, against the conventionally limbed. Gasp as Essendon Football Club trainer Carl von Ledebur injects his charges with crushed dog and goat testicles. Weep as Scott Morrison’s communist great-great-aunt Mary Gilmore holds a hose in New Australia. And marvel at how Labor, a political party that spent a quarter of a century infighting over how to spell its own name, ever rose to power. David Hunt is an unusually tall and handsome man who likes writing his own biographical notes. He is the author of the bestselling Girt and True Girt, as well as two books for children. David is also a television presenter and podcaster, and has a birthmark that looks like Tasmania, only smaller and not as far south. ‘An entertaining and instructive historical romp through the formative period of Australian nation-making with a colourful cast of rhymesters, revolutionaries, rebels, racists, reprobates and rabbits.’ —Frank Bongiorno, Professor of History, The Australian National University ‘Insightful, witty and beautifully written, Hunt’s latest offering is as Ozzie as a mozzie in a cozzie.’ —Mikey Robins ‘An instant classic – Hunt's finest work to date. His clever use of language and insightful analogies connect Australia's past with its present, showing how our history echoes today.’ —Charles Firth ‘A hilarious and witty telling of our nation’s birth – girt by criminals, blaggards, snobs, wowsers and, most importantly, feminists!’ —Wendy Harmer ‘I was hooked by the second sentence, and kept asking myself, “How can this be so horrific, so hilarious, so ridiculous, and most shocking of all, so true?” But this is not a mere history lesson: as Hunt deftly brings to life Australia’s past in a way that both illuminates and makes the reader cringe, he also makes us face our nation’s present, and future.’ —Susan Carland ‘Makes you wish David Hunt had been your history teacher. Laugh-out-loud funny and you’ll actually learn something.’ —Mark Humphries ‘Once again, David Hunt uses his sharpened wit to chisel away at misconceptions from Australian history leaving us with the cold, hard truth of how our nation came to be.’ —Osher Günsberg
