The Day We Built the Bridge - Historical Children’s Picture Book

“This is a visually stunning encounter with a period of history that continues to define Australia to this day; the building of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This book is not a dry factual historical account. It is a tender testimony to the birth of a dream and an eloquent reminder that tenacity and determination keep dreams alive no matter how long they take to realise. For an absolute glorious commemoration of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and an evocative journey of the senses, you must experience this picture book.”

The Happiness Jar - Award-winning Fiction Novel

“This year’s winner (The Happiness Jar) is a compelling story about awakening and renewal. Written in a beautiful and direct style, its journey of transformation takes us from the Australian city, to remote country, to the crowded streets of India. Its characters are wonderfully and vividly drawn: raw and never sentimental. Through their experiences, Samantha Tidy prompts us to reexamine our understandings of grief, legacy, honesty and family. The Happiness Jar is a powerfully constructed and at times surprising work: a thread that runs back and forth in time between different cultures, places and points-of-view. Above all, it is a satisfying, original and engaging novel with a unique perspective, and a worthy winner in 2014. “
