READ this sample chapter. http://taconisample.blogspot.com/  It gives you an idea of the drama,fast pace, and sibling rivalry that begins this coming of age outback Aussie adventure. Eat witchetty grubs, yabbies, and meet Claude the chatty Cockatoo. Dreamtime spirits hover while Taconi has big decisions to ponder.  Soft cover and Kindle.

Not Oscar--just an Aussie critter that thinks he is mean and ugly.
