'Ed Climbs a Big Hill' tells the story of a normal New Zealand boy who dreamed that one day he would climb the biggest hill of them all. To achieve his goal, Ed met many people and learned many lessons. Follow the inspiring journey of Sir Edmund Hillary from a normal kiwi boy all the way through to conquering the biggest mountain in the world with Tenzing Norgay. Jennifer Smith brings the story to life with well-researched and inspirational illustrations filled with action and emotion.
'Jean Dreams of Flying' is about a normal New Zealand girl who dreamed that she was a bird that could fly high, high up in the sky and far, far away. Most people thought Jean’s daydreams were silly. But one day she met someone who showed her the most fantastical machine, and Jean’s dreams took flight. Follow the inspiring journey of Jean Batten from a normal kiwi girl all the way through to being the first woman to fly all the way from England to Australia and back again. 'Jean Dreams of Flying' is illustrated by award-winning designer Terry Fitzgibbon from www.makingwaves.co.nz, a specialist in Kiwiana themes.
