By: Edwina Howard and Joe Bond
Part of the Mates series
George lives in Mumblegum and he really wants to go to Big Spills Water World but it would cost a bit of money to go. George’s grandma suggests he enter The Stockman’s Cup race at the local fair, the prize money could pay for his trip. The Cup is a horse race and they have a horse called Bandicoot that won the race more than once when it was younger, much younger. George isn’t sure it will work but to get to the theme park he’ll try anything. The race doesn’t quite go as expected.
This is a fun, modern take on Banjo Patterson’s The Man From Snowy River. There is a race, a rescue and plenty of fun along the way. The simple text, colourful illustrations and short chapters make it a perfect book for beginning readers. A great addition to the Mates series.
