PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘Banyard gives depth to the plot exploring themes of self-esteem forgiveness and the perceptions of others providing opportunities for readers to think deeply around the topics.’ The West Australian

‘Banyard writes with a sensitivity and humour that adds dimension and accessibility to the story.’ Farm Weekly

‘… Riddle Gully Runaway is a wild adventure with a clear message about facing your fears, even if running away initially seems an easier option. Recommended for mid- to upper-primary readers.’ Aussie Reviews

‘The book integrates enough adventure, action and mystery to keep even the most distracted youngsters occupied.’ Cockburn Gazette

‘… Riddle Gully Runaway is a story that skips along. It’s fast-paced and funny, packed with action, false leads, adventure and mystery … This is Jen Banyard’s third book and it’s a well-written, humorous and suspenseful read for readers of middle fiction (10 – 12 years). I thoroughly recommend this book.’ Buzz Words
