Banana Tales!!!

Image
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?

Dick Smith Electronics

David Jones
Radio Rentals

Both the IT Warehouse and Harvey Norman had scanners, but only top of the range, A4 scanners, cheapest being around the $280 mark. For that price I'd much rather an A3 scanner. 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…
