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: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Believing wholeheartedly that children preferred food to fairies - Norman Lindsay concocted a recipe for success that has lingered for ninety years. Here are the adventures of Sam Sawnoff‚ Barnacle Bill and Albert‚ the cut-and-come again pudding‚ who requires 'politeness and constant eatin'.'
This beautifully designed new edition of a perennial favourite also includes a section‚ 'From the Publisher's Archives' containing a fascinating collection of correspondence between Norman Lindsay and his publishers‚ Angus & Robertson. The letters have come from the A & R Archives held in the Mitchell Library and were selected with the assistance of Lindsay's granddaughter‚ Helen Glad‚ who also wrote a short biography of him especially for this book.
