WHAT’S NEW AT PARKES SHIRE LIBRARY?
Dr Karl’s Random Road Trip Through Science by Karl Kruszelnicki
In this book Dr Karl takes us on a weird and wonderful journey through the universe to track down the answers to questions you didn’t know you wanted to ask! Do fish drink water? Why do wombats poo cubes? Why does spaghetti always break into three pieces? Dr Karl makes science FUN and this book is filled with brilliant and funny illustrations.
DO YOU KNOW ABOUT OUR TALKING BOOKS COLLECTION?
Do you spend lots of time travelling in the car, truck or on the tractor? We have an extensive collection of talking books both fiction and non-fiction available for loan. One of our newest, read by the author, Kitty Flanagan, is: 488 Rules for Life: the thankless art of being correct. This is not a self-help book! What started as a joke on ABC’s The Weekly, 488 Rules for Life is Kitty Flanagan’s guide to modern behaviour. Whether it be walking and texting at the same time, reheating fish curry in the office microwave, or leaving one square of toilet paper on the roll, Kitty has advice on rules to make the world a better place.
