How does Fishpond Work?

We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

Annual 2 contains all-new material for 9- to- 13-year-olds. The result is a highly original, contemporary take on the much-loved annuals of the past - all in one beautiful package. Alongside familiar names publishing for children - Gavin Mouldey, Sarah Johnson, Ben Galbraith, Barry Faville, Giselle Clarkson, and Gregory O'Brien - you'll find the unexpected, including a new song by Bic Runga, a small-town mystery by Paul Thomas, and a classic New Zealand comic illustrated by new talent Henry Christian Slane. The editors wanted to throw a completely different kind of publication into the mix, to create something that was both familiar and unexpected. "We channelled our younger selves: curious, discerning, up for anything. We tried to make a book we wish we'd be given. All the content is commissioned. This meant we were able to achieve a good balance of gender, ethnicity, and rural/urban experiences. We wanted to reach as many kinds of readers as possible." Annual is playful and smart and packed with content - a book for the whole family. Readers can also visit the website - www.annualannual.com - to download additional material and read more about the contributors.
