In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Full Colour 26A glorious smorgasbord of colour, size and texture, An ABC of Treasures collects a variety of vintage, retro and contemporary objects for young readers to pore over and treasure. Always drawn to little things that are usually of little value to others, Marion Firth has fossicked about in op-shops and garage sales all over the world in her quest for the ultimate miniature collection. "I have always noticed the attention children pay to objects that adults often dismiss as tasteless plastic junk, or old tat. They love that cow that their parent is paying no heed to. They see her face. They look carefully at the patten on her back. They find her grass to eat. I guess I wanted to honour that in some way."
