I just want to say, this is one of the best stories, I have read in my whole life & the fact, that it is a true account by three young children, makes it even better. I'm only disappointed that it was over in 62 pages. I read the whole story, in 1 sitting, because I could not stop till it was over. I wish it could have gone on longer, but the ending was the best. It brought tears to my eyes, it made my heart fill with joy, & those sweet, loving, kind-hearted children found their true home. They filled a void in the older couples life & they ended up right where they belonged. I give this book an AAA . If, you have alittle time to kill.... check it out.... than, you put your Likes or Dislikes here....but please leave your comment for others to read!!!!! I can't believe that 6 people did not like it!!! WHY??? I would like to say,"Thank You,to the author & you can take me on another cross-country journey, anytime you want to. You have may it into my Hall of Fame!!! Right up there with, some of the Greatest like.... Stephen King, Dean Koonx,T.M.Nielsen & James Patterson.{: )

When three children are left without parents or guardians, the Child Welfare Department take charge of them. The Department have a plan for the children’s future. The children are quite unhappy with the plan and set about finding a way out of the dilemma. With the resourcefulness typical of Australian bush kids, they plan and carry out a course of action that enables them to “fly beneath the radar” of the authorities in such a way that they are never identified as missing. The children pack their gear on bicycles and travel the far outback regions of Australia looking for a home where they can live together. Based loosely on events that actually happened to the author, the dialogue and descriptions ring true. The reader is quickly drawn into the story and soon feels that they know Peter, Robyn and Billy very well. Sharing their fears, joys, adventures and challenges, the reader experiences all the emotions. This is a story that appeals to all ages – one that is hard to put down and one to reread over and over.

I loved this book - so did my children. The story is so real that you feel you know Peter, Robyn and Billy well. Billy is such a cute little boy with all his funny sayings. I would say to anyone who is looking for a story for the whole family, don't miss this one!

My grandson and I throughly enjoyed this book


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Kylie Reynolds

Kylie was a bush kid from the far outback of Australia. She loved riding her bicycle on the long distance camping trips - often of several weeks duration that took us to the next job.. She loved writing stories she could share with other children. Kylie did her schooling by correspondence (distance education). On our trips (bikes being our only transport by the way) she did her lessons sitting under any convenient shady shrub or tree or by firelight. Several times during the long summer school holidays we made camp in a city and Kylie would get a newspaper delivery round - filling in for some kid who was on holidays. She enjoyed joining in the free school holiday programs run for kids in the high rise flats. Kylie wrote “A Bunch of Battlers” based on her experiences in the bush and in the city, “Trekking To The Sunset”, “Rascal” and “Flashing Pedals” are fiction based on actual happenings in her life. When Kylie developed a fatal illness she showed great courage, always thinking of others. Kylie asked that I try to get her stories published so other children could enjoy them. On her website (http://www.mulgatraining.com.au/littlebanjo/) Kylie wrote of “my musings on life, God, poems, ponderings, & thinkings..” Kylie's Mum
