Take the Yukon Express with Captain Congo and his loyal offside Pug as they travel deep into the great Canadian north-west in pursuit of gold, ghosts and monsters. But who is pursuing our heroes?

One thing is certain: when Pug mysteriously disappears at an old mining camp it will take more than strange lights, skeletons and a Sasquatch to frighten off Captain Congo.

This is a story that shows how strong and devastating flood water can be to homes and livelihoods. It is inspired by the 2011 Queensland floods but it could be about any of the disasters that strike our land, and the events that turn everyday Australians into heroes. Flood depicts water mercilessly ripping through Queensland towns and then receding, leaving destruction and devastation in its wake. Told from the perspective of a cattle dog who is separated from his family, Flood helps children to understand the effects of a traumatic natural disaster without being too confronting, while the story of the little tugboat that pushes a boardwalk out to sea, staving off further disaster, gives smaller children a hero they can relate to. Flood is a beautiful and timely expression of the strength of the Australian spirit during times of adversity.
