The Water Horse
The story begins with a mysterious egg washed up on a Scottish beach, the morning after a great storm.
Kirstie and her brother Angus find the egg and take it home. The next day it has hatched into a tiny greeny-grey creature with a horse's head, warty skin, four flippers and a crocodile's tail.
The baby sea monster soon becomes the family pet - but the trouble is, it just doesn't stop growing!

An Impossible Enchantment (a Grey Fairy Tale)
There once lived a king who was much loved by his people, and he, too, loved them warmly. He led a very happy life, but he had the greatest dislike to the idea of marrying, nor had he ever felt the slightest wish to fall in love. His subjects begged him to marry, and at last he promised to try to do so. But as, so far, he had never cared for any woman he had seen, he made up his mind to travel in hopes of meeting some lady he could love.
Australia is fortunate to offer the fish enthusiast a wide variety of species, which live in a diversity of environments and display fascinating survival strategies.
This Wild Australia Guide outlines the unique characteristics of Australia's freshwater species, together with their diet and reproduction. Beautiful photographs assist with the identification of each fish. It would not have been possible however, without the ground breaking work of many scientists and researchers who publish their findings. Nor would it have been possible without the ongoing work of government agencies such as the Fisheries Departments of the various States and in particular the Murray-Darling Basin Commission, the Australia New Guinea Fishes Association (ANGFA), and many dedicated private individuals.
