Stars of Orion by PG Rob
(Central Otago Writer)

When Gabriel Read lifted his shovel and saw gold, shining like the stars in the Orion on a dark frosty night, he sparked off NZ's first gold rush in 1861
Young Robbie in Dunedin was determined to find his father at the Tuapeka goldfield. With no roads or signposts, not even a map to guide him in a newly-settled land, he set off on foot across the rugged hills to the shanty town of Wetherstons.
The adventure of a lifetime had begun.

Chief the Woofty Snoofty by Chris Baldwin

Jack is fearful of the dreadful 'Giraffe' that everyone
 talks about, thumping and bumping about the house,

His imagination knows no why does 
Mum laugh and tell him he's being silly?
