Callie Cameron's not happy. She's had a fight with her best friend Frances, and her brothers and sister keep reading her diary and wrecking her things.

And that's not all. Callie hates the though of having to give up her 'castle' to her brother Dan, now that she's getting older. There's also an adventure in story- a trip to Denmark to meet their cousin Marius- but only one ticket. So which of them will go: Callie or Dan?

Originally published as Callie's Castle and Callie's Family, this combined edition reintroduces these two classics by one of Australia's best love authors to a new generation of young readers.

Ruth Park

Born in New Zealand, Ruth Park came to Australia in 1942 to continue her career as a journalist. She married the writer D'Arcy Niland and travelled with him through the north-west of New South Wales before settling in Sydney where she became a full-time writer.

She has written over fifty books, and her many awards include the prestigious Miles Franklin Award for Swords and Crowns and Rings; the Australian Children's Book of the Year Award and the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award (USA) for Playing Beatie Bow and The Age Book of the Year Award for A Fence Around the Cuckoo.

She was made a Member of the Order of Australia in 1987 and in 1994 was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Letter from the University of New South Wales. Ruth Park passed away in December 2010
