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 Walkabout, 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. Billy is a juxtaposition of seasoned warrior and innocent child that makes him incredibly easy to like.” Jessica B, Publisher, BooksATrueStory
“This is definitely a one-of-a-kind book worthy of recognition and literary appreciation. Kudos to Gary Taaffe!” 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 ...
Billy arrives in the city to mixed reactions: he has to fight off a mongrel old man, he makes a gruesome discovery in a barrel at the tip and wolf-whistles leave leave him confused over the appeal of his bare bum. That’s all easy, until he meets Amber down a rat-infested alley.
“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!
