Basketball Tree

Sam wants to be good at basketball. He’s very short and his friend Tess is very tall. Can they both get on the school team? And will Sam ever find out what’s wrong with the class bully who’s behaving very strangely?

Wheels of Fire

When Bec’s new teacher suggests a way for her to join in the school concert in her wheelchair, she’s not so sure. She’s more interested in catching a thief with her friend Damien. But Rima has plans for Bec’s costume and the concert night turns out to be a BIG one!
