The State Library of Victoria recently ran a competition asking kids which Victorian book they would save if they could only save one book and a tidal wave was coming? Mitchell Bailes, 12, from Mt Eliza North Primary School wants to save Boy Overboard by Mor ris Gleitzman. He says in his winning entry: ‘If I could save a famous Victorian book it would have to be Boy Overboard by Mor ris Gleitzman. It is a very interesting book because it tells you about what it is actually like to be a refugee, and the way they are treated in detention camps. I know that if I was a refugee I would be the most frightened person on the planet Earth. (I mean it!) When I read this book I could feel the pain and suffering of the Afghani refu- gee. There is one boy who lost his leg because of a landmine, and that would wreck your life forever. ‘The story is about a boy who tries to escape his country, to save his and many other families from the dreaded Afghanistan gover nment. He fled to Australia by boat with many adventures on the way. I would love to save this adventurous book!’ Which book would you save?

The Shipping News by Annie Proulx I read this book mainly because I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I was not disappointed.The story of a man whose life has fallen apart going back to his roots and rebuilding everything. An Equal Music by Vikram Seth I love classical music so I enjoyed read- ing a book in which music plays such a big part.
