Audrey of the Outback, Christine Harris , 2008 single work children's fiction children's
'A young girl growing up in Outback South Australia in the 1930s. They family doesn't have much, and her father is often away, but Audrey has an extraordinary imagination, and despite having not other children her age to play with, her life is full of amazing ideas and dreams.' (Libraries Australia)
Audrey Goes to Town, Christine Harris , 2008 single work children's fiction children's
Audrey and her younger brother are left with a strict old lady when her father has to go off dingo hunting and and her mother is in hospital. Through the townsfolk she meets she learns about life and relationships in a rural outback town in the 1930s.
Audrey's Big Secret, Christine Harris , 2009 single work children's fiction children's

'The opening scene sets the tone for this satisfying story set in the outback in the 1920s. Audrey pulls back the hessian curtains, glad her parents can’t afford glass, and leans out to whisper to Stumpy, ‘we’re going to find out the swagman’s secret’. Audrey is a feisty young heroine, the middle child in a struggling family living an isolated bush life. Audrey decides to try being, in turn, a swaggie (for the freedom), a man (because they claim to know everything and can use words girls can’t) and a teacher as all she will have to do is tell people what to do. Her adventures, including being around when her brother accidentally blows up the dunny, are very entertaining, but it is also a touching story about facing hardships and growing up in one’s own time.'
