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'.

ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
What lurks beneath the waves? What lies around the riverbend? Find out by diving into this anthology of underwater stories by young Australian authors!
Fifteen young editors, mentored by children's author Davina Bell and publishing industry professionals, have put together a collection of underwater-themed stories unlike anything you've ever seen. The collection includes 15 intrepid tales and poems written by young Australian writers between the ages of 8 to12, alongside a contribution from Melbourne-based author and schoolteacher Amelia Mellor. Amelia's debut novel The Grandest Bookshop in the World was published by Affirm Press last year. She has written a reimagined feminist retelling of The Little Mermaid which is in rhymed couplets.
