Banana Tales!!!

Looking for a good book? Even more importantly - are you looking for a good children's book? Look no further - check out Banana Tales!
Created by the ultra-talented Mark McKenna, Banana Tales is a kids book that'll appeal to all ages. After all how much cooler does it get than a talking monkey who gets into all kinds of trouble? I'll answer that - for a kid it doesn't get any better.

You've got Banana Tale himself, Tic-Tac the Zebra, Rinna the Rhino and EggBoo the Ostrich.

Sporting a cast of many, Banana Tales is a must read book. The art is top notch - as you'd expect from a man who's worked with the best - and the stories are easily accessible. I could see this book getting into primary schools everywhere...

As an added bonus, with every ten books ordered Mark will send you out a signed book with a sketch. I mean, come on!! What more do you need?

You can order the books directly via this link: ORDERS

Dick Smith Electronics
David Jones
Radio Rentals

I wanted a simple Canon scanner for around the $100 mark, or under. My previous scanner cost me $70 brand new, so I wasn't about to pay $250 for one now.

What people do have are multi-functions. Those are the lovely little packages you see that have a scanner, printer, photocopier, fax and whistle all built in. I didn't want one of those as I a…
