I’d like to invite you to enter the give-away I’m having on my Sue Elvis Writes blog. I am promoting Father James Tierney’s Bush Boys books, and I have two paperback versions to give away. Actually each book is really two books. Two full length Bush Boys books have been published in one volume: Bush Boys and Cuthbert Joins the Bush Boys.
Here’s a description of the book series from the Catholic Heritage Curricula Website:
Available for the first time in the U.S.! Straight from the Australian bush come these exciting tales of faith, adventure, and camping fun! Ages 8 and up will bushwalk, cook, and camp with the Bush Boys and take part in their many adventures as they learn about safety, integrity, and obedience. Fr. Tierney, Australian parish priest, wrote these books “to delight the reader with exciting bush adventures, to portray the robust life of a big happy Christian family, and to air the possibilities of home-educating.” Join Greg and Bernie, homeschooled Catholic boys, as they hunt for treasure, rescue a cousin from kidnappers, and deal with snakebites, wild animals, and much more! Lively illustrations accompany each book including handy maps, diagrams, and ABC’s of Camping. Softcover. Too exciting to put down!
Both boys and girls would enjoy the Bush Boys books. Suitable age? Maybe 7 or 8 up to teenagers. I know some Bush Boys fans who still love these books, even though they are well past the age of dressing up in real Bush Boys clothes and pretending they are off on a Bush Boy (or Girl) adventure!
I will be drawing the winners on the first Sunday of Advent which falls on 1st December.
It’s easy to enter: a quick comment. You don’t even need to follow my blog. And I’m willing to post the books anywhere in the world, so anyone can enter. A give-away without many entries will look very sad. So please follow the link and enter my give-away.
