Down, Across & Up
Genevieve had always dreamed of riding her horse all around New Zealand. When she met Kerrin and he was keen to join her, everything fell into place. It seemed simple – except that Kerrin had never ridden a horse before…and then there were the obstacles:- quicksand, lack of tracks, cattle stops, difficult terrain, lame horses, swollen rivers, injuries, crazy drivers, rampant wildlife and stubborn horses. Down, Across & Up is the heartwarming adventure story of a young couple who showed true grit and a great can-do Kiwi attitude. On their fundraising ride for CanTeen, which raised over $33,000, Genevieve and Kerrin covered over 5000 kilometers of coastline, made a documentary and wrote a book. A fine adventure indeed.

The Sillyverse is a place where you can play chess with Bigfoot and the Yeti, use a jellyphone, meet an upside down cat and an upright bat, find a poem that isn’t there and see penguins having epic rap battles. It’s much more fun than the universe, what a wonderful place is the Sillyverse.
This charming collection of poems and illustrations will have you laughing until you spit your juice out… and then for a wee bit longer.
