Down, Across & Up
Genevieve had always dreamed of riding her horse all around New Zealand. When she met Kerrin and he was keen to join her, everything fell into place. It seemed simple – except that Kerrin had never ridden a horse before…and then there were the obstacles:- quicksand, lack of tracks, cattle stops, difficult terrain, lame horses, swollen rivers, injuries, crazy drivers, rampant wildlife and stubborn horses. Down, Across & Up is the heartwarming adventure story of a young couple who showed true grit and a great can-do Kiwi attitude. On their fundraising ride for CanTeen, which raised over $33,000, Genevieve and Kerrin covered over 5000 kilometers of coastline, made a documentary and wrote a book. A fine adventure indeed.

The Sillyverse is a place where you can play chess with Bigfoot and the Yeti, use a jellyphone, meet an upside down cat and an upright bat, find a poem that isn’t there and see penguins having epic rap battles. It’s much more fun than the universe, what a wonderful place is the Sillyverse.
This charming collection of poems and illustrations will have you laughing until you spit your juice out… and then for a wee bit longer.
Colour Chaos is a beautiful coffee table book, showcasing Kerrin Revell’s photography project of the same name. Kerrin blends light and colour into incredible photographs, some of which you could easily mistake for paintings. Some images can transport you through space, to other worlds and others into the depths of the ocean, sometimes on the same page. Mere descriptions cannot do justice to the visual journey your eyes will go on, reading the book.
