Showtime! 30 New Zealand Stories For Children

Author(s): Barbara Else

NZ Middle Fiction 8-12-year-olds

School fairs, birthdays, rodeo, picnics, musicians and the country show - 30 stories about NZ children showing what they're made of at home, at school, in parades and anywhere! Roll up and join the fun! This collection is all about children having a go at something or being involved in a celebration or unusual event. Often, there is a twist in the tale. There are pieces about being on stage - poor Jacob and his jitters, lively Ophelia, keen Balu. There is a story about a wedding, and one about a baby party. There are stories about circuses (fleas! elephants!), and tales about magic - a mysterious dancing partner. There are new writers and lots of old favourites.
