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 Tribal Scarring, 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
“Though Tribal Scarring was more serious, it was really great. One of the best YA books I have read! Kudos! I recommend everyone to read it.” 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 ...
Dealing with his devious older brothers in Four Small Stones was nothing compared to facing his initiations into manhood. The old Magic Man wants to use the slice of a knife where no boy wants a knife to go! Billy’s not keen. Can’t blame him. But it’s endure the pain or remain a boy forever.
“Great coming of age story.” Anne, Australia
“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!
