However, if you don’t mind being completely grossed out one minute and laughing your head off the next, please read on ...
“I would read ANYTHING this man wrote.” That’s what Mr La Rue said. Plus he didn’t just read Four Small Stones, he had a little nap and then read all the way through to book 8, Final Straw! Pretty impressive.
“Mad writing skills you’ve got.” Jessica B, Publisher, BooksATrueStory
“From the first page to last, you'll be hooked. This story is probably one of the best new young adult books out there. It's a great start to a great series!”JB Cacdac, Singapore Review of Books
Billy’s gotta find some girls. The problem is he’s an Aborigine from the Australian bush and all he’s got to wear is a loincloth. Not a good look in the city. And what’s worse, he’s never even seen a girl before. Could life get anymore difficult? Why yes it could. Billy could fall in love ...
But first he has to survive two devious older brothers and a couple of initiations to prove his manhood. Great.
“Taaffe's series is a wonderful action series for boys and girls who don't mind a little grit in their stories.” Tammy and Alex Dewhurst, Canada
“I have just finished reading the first three in this series and they were the funniest books I have ever read in my entire life! By the time I had finished Four Small Stones I had tears rolling down my cheeks I was laughing so hard. I couldn't wait to read Tribal Scarring and Walkabout and they were both just as good if not better. Can't wait for number 4.” Wendy and Andres, UK
“While written for a younger age bracket, adult humour has been included. However it has been written in such a way that what seems like a funny incident to a younger audience, holds an underlying meaning for the adults. I highly recommend this series to everybody who is interested in reading a beautifully written story.” Pinky Pollock, Australian Book Review
URBAN HUNTERS is laugh-out-loud, gut-churning, heart-wrenching storytelling at its best. Unlike anything you’ve ever read, in typical Taaffe fashion. Hilarious as usual. Always surprising. Wonderful!
