Adventures in history are back!

South Coast, NSW children’s author Dell Brand has finally released the sequel to 'History’s a Mystery'. 'History’s a Mystery Again' continues magical adventures back in history.
June 5, 2011 - PRLog -- Matt, Ben, Nicky and Kris live in the small country town of Coolongewong in the central west of New South Wales. Last year they discovered that on the day of the new moon each month their classroom became magic. By tripping on a creaky floorboard, crashing into the teacher’s desk and saying the magic words 'History’s a Mystery', they found that they could be transported back in time and experience exciting and sometimes dangerous adventures.  

Now they are about to start Year 6 with the school’s most popular teacher, Mr Mac, and enjoy another year in the magic classroom. Together they continue to go back into the past, to meet some of history’s most famous figures and be present at some of history’s most crucial times. Their adventures take them from the age of the dinosaurs and the ice age to a visit into the future, from the Vikings and Aztecs to Ned Kelly and from the Titanic and Hindenburg to Gallipoli, with many other places in between.

Dell Brand grew up in Sydney, attending North Sydney Girls High School and Sydney University. She taught in state high schools during her working life, teaching Physical and Health Education. She has been recognised with the Minister’s Award for Excellence in Teaching and the Outstanding Achievement in Education Award from the Australian College of Education.

She has always had a keen interest in children with challenging behaviours, and worked for a number of years with a wilderness-enhanced program aimed at turning around young people’s lives. This formed the basis of her PhD. As a teacher in this program she was able to involve herself in many of her recreational passions including abseiling, rock-climbing, wilderness trekking, canyoning and canoeing.  In recent years she has developed a particular interest in family history and history in general.

Dell is now working on the third book in the series, 'History’s Still a Mystery'. She uses her own travel experiences to write first-hand about places she has seen and people she has met. Some of these places find their way into her books. She loves the outdoors, especially the wilderness. In her younger years she was a keen swimmer and an A grade squash player. She now enjoys all outdoor pursuits and tries to play golf regularly.  She has a wonderful, close family and is married with two grown-up children and five beautiful grandchildren. She lives on the south coast of New South Wales.  This is her second children’s book. Her website is
