Pete is a friend and colleague. He continues to go from strength to strength with New Frontier, producing stories full of warm and sensitive characters. In The Children Who Loved Books, he challenges the notion that “stuff” makes us happy. The two children in the story, Angus and Lucy, don’t have very much – but with books and each other they have pretty much everything they need.
- Lower primary
- Family reading, followed by discussion about wants vs needs
