About the Book

Readers will enjoy the antics of the pet, Magpie, that comes straight from the Australian bush. They will enjoy how a lonely little bull is rescued by Bronte’s dad. There is also a story about a wonder dog that saves a young child’s life and a love story between three people. Readers will have the pleasure of reading about a wild dingo before he returns to the wild. Tow adventures in the ocean and on a property; the fantasy of Farmer Jack who find the Cabbage Patch Rabbits in an obscure place on his farm; a little deaf girl who dreams that she can become an accomplished pianist—these are the stories found in this book.

About the Author

Betty May Winter writes under the pen name of Elizabeth May Winters. She was born in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia on the 29th of October. Her maiden name was Lyddy before she married in 1971. She moved to Rockhampton in Central Queensland in 1975. In 1997, she majored in drama and communications at the Central Queensland University. In 2000, she moved with her family to a 110-acre Duboisia property in Tingoora, which is in the South Burnett Area of Queensland. Tingoora is an Aboriginal name meaning “Place of Wattle Trees.” They regularly visit Wooroolin, Wondai, Murgon, and Kingaroy. These are also Aboriginal names. Wooroolin means “Place of Water”; Wondai is the “Place of the Wild Dingoes”; Murgon, the “Place of Water Lilies”; and Kingaroy is the “Red Ant.” The wild animals that she writes about come from these areas. Her first book, “FairyLand,” was published in 2007.
