MY GRANDMA LIVED IN GOOLIGULCH

Frolicsome tale of a Grandmother who shares her house and adventures with native Australian animals and birds written to a wonderful verse.
"And yet,, I have a feeling,
That Grandma's still alive
Having drifted to an island,
Where she'd manage to survive.
From there perhaps she made her way,
To England or to Spain,
Or maybe San Francisco,
On a Western railway train."

But who can say what mysteries a single page may hold?
A maze of hidden codes and clues, a clock at every turn,
And only Time will tell what other secrets you may learn..."

Here's a grid with all the animals and their names. Have you figured out what Swan's name is? Mrs. Reilly's class did !

THE SIGN OF THE SEAHORSE: A TALE OF GREED AND HIGH ADVENTURE IN TWO ACTS

Starting at the Seahorse Cafe and onward to the Great Continental Shelf, you are held captive by the rhyming verse and magnificient illustrations.
"This place we used to call our home has really gone to pot.
And now on top of all the rest,
the reef's begun to rot.
When sharks are free to terrorize a poor, defenseless snail,
I'd say the situation has gone beyond the pale".
