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'.

ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
'The Gum Family Finds Home' is a delightful Australian story about home and family and a celebration of the stunning Australian landscape and its flora and fauna.
Join the Gum family of koalas, who hitch up their caravan and set off in search of the perfect home. Together with the Gum family, children will explore the sheer variety and imposing grandeur of the Australian geological landscape, from Uluru to King's Canyon, from gorges and limestone pillars to precariously placed boulders and sweeping plains. Searching for that perfect home, they learn the heart-warming truth that the best home is the one you create for yourself among family and friends.
Parents, friends, carers and teachers will enjoy the age-old premise that 'home is where your heart is' and smile as children try to figure out where the Gums will decide to live. At the back of the book, travel the country again through photographs of locations from the story and learn fascinating facts about their formation and history.
