"A very funny story about writing, soccer, girls and weird stuff. Brian Hobble isn't much of a writer - he's more of a soccer player. And most of the time he's not much of a soccer player either. But then one day he borrows a pink Easyflow pen from Nathan Lumsdyke, and he can't stop writing! Unfortunately for Brian, the pen only allows him to write sickeningly flowery prose, even on his science test. Brian can't wait to give the pen back until he realises that Cassandra Wyman finds him a lot more interesting with his new-found writing talent. WEIRD STUFF is the first in a new series by Richard Tulloch revolving around the kids of Garunga Central and the slightly odd things that happen to them.

Brian Hobble, Author (also soccer superstar and red-hot babe magnet) 'Brian Hobble is the most talented young writer I've met in my years as a children's author and writing teacher. Keep up the good work, Brian!' Lancelot Cu

This volume examines how oral and written language function in school learning , and how oral texts can be successfully inter-connected to the written texts that are used on a daily basis in schools. Rather than argue for the prominence of one over the other, the goal is to help the reader gain a rich understanding of how both might work together to create a new discourse that ultimately creates new knowledge. Talking Texts: Provides historical background for the study of talk and text Presents examples of children’s and adolescents’ natural conversations as analyzed by linguists Addresses talk as it interfaces with domains of knowledge taught in schools to show how talk is related to and may be influenced by the structure, language, and activities of a specific discipline. Bringing together seminal lines of research to create a cohesive picture of discourse issues germane to classrooms and other learning settings, this volume is an essential resource for researchers, graduate students, classroom teachers, and curriculum specialists across the fields of discourse studies, literacy and English education, composition studies, language development, sociolinguistics, and applied linguistics.
