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

Another in a long line of writers born elsewhere yet able to capture Australian life so beautifully, Ruth Park’s writing has had a lasting effect on both adults and children for over 60 years.

Born in Auckland to a Scottish father and a Swedish mother, Park moved to Australia in 1942 where she had lined up a job with a newspaper.

Her first novel was The Harp in the South, a graphic story of Irish slum life in Sydney, which has been translated into 37 languages. Even though it was acclaimed by literary critics, the book proved controversial with sections of the public due to its candour. It remains her most popular novel and has never been out of print.

Between 1946 and 2004, she received numerous awards for her contributions to literature in both Australia and internationally including the Miles Franklin Award for Swords and Crowns and Rings in 1977. She was made a Member of the Order of Australia in 1987.

Ruth Park died in December 2010.
