The Little Penguin Handbook: Australasian Edition offers student-friendly features and includes coverage of the most current MLA, APA, CMS and Harvard citation, documentation, and style guidelines.

Lyn Gannon from School of Education, Southern Cross University, has reviewed and further adapted the book specifically for the Australasian context.

With more visuals and sample documents than other essential handbooks, this handy full-colour reference gives students just what they need to know about the writing and research processes, while providing coverage of documentation and grammar.

The 2nd edition has been improved with some additional content and tabbed sections to allow students improved navigation and ease of use.
