In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
When Immy and her parents escape their problems in Australia and move to a little English village in Cambridgeshire, they think they’ve found an idyllic cottage to live in with a big mulberry tree in the backyard. Soon they learn of a local tale of how every little girl who has ever lived in the cottage has disappeared on the eve of her eleventh birthday, never to be seen again. Immy’s eleventh birthday is a month away and she is determined to prove the local legend wrong.
The Mulberry Tree looks at issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder, starting a life in a new country, and being seen as ‘other’ or ‘different’, yet Allison Rushby explores them in a very subtle way that leaves room for wonderful storytelling to take place. This book had me hooked from the start and is a great story that readers aged 10+ will love.
