'30 Australian Stories For Children samples some of the best stories for children that
Australia has to offer, combining old favourites and contemporary classics in one collection
aimed at upper primary school readers (7 to 11 year olds). This collection has a lively, up-
beat tone that will have both children and adults chuckling.
Children can read the stories themselves, while teachers and parents will find them
excellent for reading aloud. Entertaining black and white illustrations from Gregory Rogers
add to the enjoyment of each story. This is a collection to inspire the imaginations of
Australian children and reflect what is special about growing up in Australia.' (Publisher's blurb)
