The inspirational journey of a mum who turned her life around with one simple thing: her baby’s pram! Overweight and miserable after the birth of your baby? The Pram Diet offers inspiration, hope and realistic, practical tips from a mum who turned her life around with one simple thing: her baby's pram. Many mothers with new babies find it hard to lose weight after their child is born. Sometimes it's because they lack the time to prepare nourishing food for themselves or to exercise. Sometimes it's because they're suffering from postnatal depression. Rebecca Mugridge understands - following the birth of her first child she was overweight and unhappy, and at a loss to do anything about it. Then one day she put her baby in the pram and went for a walk. Several months and a lot of pram-walking later, she had lost 30 kgs and found a new lease of life, as well as a passion to help other mums.

People travel from London to New York every day - nothing unusual about that, but if your journey took you 14 months, you might rightly wish to seek compensation from the airline! However, Mark Cundy’s journey was different; his was a walking odyssey of immense proportions, covering 5,500 miles between October 2004 and December 2005 across three continents, in aid of Cancer Research UK and its overseas equivalents. Facing a lonely, often gruelling trek, Mark encountered many setbacks and obstacles en route: limited resources, accommodation problems, language barriers, extremes of climate, red tape, cultural differences and health issues, and met plenty of ‘angels’ and a few ‘devils’ as his journey pressed on through Europe, across Russia and on to Australia and finally the USA. There were many times he stopped to wonder, “What am I doing?” But in true Forrest Gump style, he just kept on walking. This is an extraordinary story, told with immense humour, of true grit and determination against the odds to fulfil a dream that had been many years in the making, one that took the ‘World Walker’ through every gamut of emotion, from fear to triumph and desperation to sheer joy. It was a defining achievement. And to what does the ‘pram’ in the title refer? He didn’t really take a baby with him, did he? Well, you’ll just have to read it and see!

From the bestselling author of Mallawindy and the Woody Creek series comes a story of love and rescue "The narrative is achingly engrossing" Weekend Australian She had felt a sad pulling feeling in her stomach that day as the car had driven off, like there was a bit of elastic tied around her insides, sort of joining her to those brothers like it went right through that door, and as the car had driven further up the road, that elastic got pulled so tight, it hurt. Lori Smyth-Owen is balancing on the edge of adolescence but feeling years older. She has eleven brothers, nine living at home and the twins, who were stolen by Aunty Eva ... which was lucky for them because there is never enough of anything to go around, except Mavis, Lori's mother, who is so overweight she can barely move. That doesn't stop her plotting to get those twins back. She'll do anything to get them home. Then tragedy strikes and the Smyth-Owen children take desperate measures to save themselves ... and in so doing, discover that blood ties mean everything. PRAISE FOR JOY DETTMAN "Dettman writes compulsively readable stories" The Age Fans of Rosalie Ham's The Dressmaker will love Joy Dettman.
