While Joan Lindsay's haunting Australian classic Picnic at Hanging Rock is a work of fiction, the story is often considered one of Australia's greatest mysteries.

'Don't worry about us, Mam'selle dear,' smiled Miranda. 'We shall only be gone a very little while.'

Every so often, there comes a story so brilliant and lively and moving that it cannot be left in the past.

Rediscover the magic of our country's most memorable children's books in the Penguin Australia Children's Classics series of stories too precious to leave behind.
