If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.

ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
A funny and fresh novel for young readers from Australian Olympic skateboarder and creative soul Poppy Starr Olsen.
Meet Poppy Starr Olsen. Poppy is twelve and bursting with energy. She loves everything active, from surfing, swimming and skating to playing soccer or rugby in the school yard. But there's more to Poppy than her sporting skills - drawing, painting and jewellery design are her equal passions. She dreams big!
For Poppy, life is pretty good. She lives in Bondi with her family. When she's not at school hanging with her best friend, you'll find Poppy and her family outdoors doing something adventurous. The Olsen kids don't do screens during the week; instead, they make their own fun. Build a flying fox in the back garden? Easy. Out-jump each other on their old trampoline? Why not? Cliff dive into the harbour. Let's go!
What Poppy really looks forward to each day, though, is heading to the Bondi skate park after school. She's the only girl and the youngest skater there, but she has mountains to climb and she won't let anything stop her.
A novel from Australia's top female skateboarder, written with Jess Black, author of the bestselling Kaboom Kid series.
