Celebrating 40 years in print this is a new edition of the classic children's poem by Australia's favourite poet, A.B. 'Banjo' Paterson. Mulga Bill's Bicycle was written by Banjo Paterson in 1896. It was written at a time when cycling was a relatively new and popular social activity. Cycles were ridden everywhere, including in the outback by shearers and other workers who needed to travel cheaply. Mulga Bill's Bicycle tells the hilarious story of Mulga Bill, who thinks he's much better at cycling than he turns out to be. A resounding crash sends him back to his original mode of transport - his trusty horse. Kilmeny and Deborah Niland's delightful illustrations catch the mood and humour of Paterson's verse with great spirit, and this book has become an enduring classic.

We're All Australians Now follows the tradition of other A & R children's classics such as Mulga Bill's Bicycle and Click Go the Shears with the poem "We're All Australians Now" by A. B. 'Banjo' Paterson illustrated by the award-winning Mark Wilson. In 1915, Australia's much-loved bush poet Banjo Paterson wrote, as an open letter to the troops, a poem he titles 'We're All Australians Now'. In this beautifully illustrated picture book, award-winning illustrator Mark Wilson evokes the spirit of Paterson's words in memory of those who fought in World War One. PRAISE FOR WE'RE ALL AUSTRALIANS NOW 'Multi-talented illustrator Mark Wilson has taken this poem and created this outstanding version of We're All Australians Now in picture book format. Wilson's clever collage layouts of sketches and oil paintings brilliantly bring this poem to life by showing us a reflection of everyday life in 1915' -- Reading Time
