Bush Baby Rescue
Hi! I'm Juliet. I'm ten years old. And I'm nearly a vet!
A terrible bushfire has struck and Mum's vet clinic is in chaos. Every day more and more injured baby animals arrive. Chelsea and I have never been busier! There's an adorable baby koala to feed by hand, a fat little wombat to bandage, and a funny blue-tongued lizard that Max is determined to make his pet.
But who knew that babies needed so much feeding! I may never sleep again!
About the Author
Rebecca Johnson is an Australian author, teacher and mother of two. Juliet, Nearly a Vet is her first fiction series with Penguin. She has also written a best-selling non-fiction series of adventures featuring Australian wildlife, which has sold more than 2.6 million copies.
From the author:
When I was growing up, I was mad about animals. Not just the normal kind like cats, dogs and horses, but anything that moved. The best part of all was that I actually lived next door to a vet! We are still great friends and he's 95 now. One of my fondest memories of growing up is going out in a canoe with my sister and brother after a f lood and Ârescuing animals that were stranded on sticks and twigs and ferrying them to safety. Not every girl I know would be happiest in a canoe full of mice, bugs and the odd green snake,
but I'm sure Juliet would!

Baby Washcloths & Afghan Squares
Simple knit and purl stitches utilizing 100 percent cotton yarn create a variety of colorful eight-inch square blocks that can be used alone as bath time washcloths-soft enough for an infant's skin yet durable to last for years-or sewn together into a lovely baby blanket. This book includes instructions for 10 easy-knit blocks, each featuring a different textured pattern, plus a slipped-stitch block with stripes. The geometric textured designs feature mesmerizing diamonds, squares, basket weaves, circles, chevrons, and more. Special consideration was taken that the blocks do not have any lace holes or strands of yarn to catch little fingers or toes. With these mix-and-match patterns, knitters can make as few or as many as they desire, and attractive, matching sets of afghans and washcloths make great gifts for new moms.

A generation ago America passed a law allowing a bankrupt person's debts to be bought by rich Masters. The debt slaves then belonged to their Masters for the duration of the debt. Urith hadn't been lucky when his debt was sold. He ended up in Mistress Hong's brothels being beaten and fucked by people who didn't give a damn about him. Still, there was some satisfaction to his new life. Learning the secrets of the Masters' who used him so that Mistress Hong could blackmail them was satisfying in many ways. Any guilt he might have felt when starting out quickly died under the realization that the rich and powerful were worse scum than criminals on the street. Urith tried not to think about what associating with them was doing to him. But sometimes he couldn't avoid it. Coming 'home' from a bad night with bad Masters to the new boy sharing his bunk forced Urith to deal with emotions he usually avoided and memories he tried to forget. It wasn't the new boy's fault that no one had filled him in on the facts of life in Mistress Hong's service but that didn't mean Urith enjoyed getting explanation duty.
From taking a bath to getting a kiss good night, this book playfully details the nighttime rituals of every little one.
Children can touch and feel Baby's fuzzy blanket, squishy rubber ducky, cuddly teddy bear, and more!
