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.

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.

First published in 2015, this title now has a new cover and the format has been increased to 200 x 230 mm. Young children will be captivated by the bright colours and Australian animals which bring to life this entertaining tale of a young emu who has lost his mob and sets out to find it.
He asks the animals he encounters along the way if they `have seen his mob?' The kangaroo, lizard, owl, cassowary and others provide directions in their own, often confusing, way, until finally the youngster catches up with his mob.
In iconic Australian style, My Lost Mob combines highly textured and bold illustrations of Australian animals and varied landscapes in a simple, classical format that will appeal to younger readers and all that are young at heart. A gem of a book that will charm its way onto bookshelves.
