- GUEST AUTHOR & PUBLISHER -
Today, I welcome a friend, fellow author, and publisher from Australia. Elaine Ouston is a prolific writer, and today she is promoting her latest book.
Welcome, Elaine ...
'I have long been bothered by the amount of graffiti and other forms of destruction of public and private property and decided to write a book for children that would help them realise how wrong it is, how the person on the other end of their abuse feels, and how they would feel if it was done to them or something or someone they loved.’
The book is 'Fearless Friends- Graffiti Fighters'. Hopefully, some will take the message on board.
FEARLESS FRIENDS - GRAFFITI FIGHTERS BY ELAINE OUSTON
With a theme of 'do unto others what you would have done to you', this
book teaches the importance of respecting other people's property.
When Evie discovered someone had sprayed graffiti on her neighbour’s fence her blood boiled from anger and she vowed to find out who it was. And then he made it personal and she became furious.
With help from her cousin Willem, and a special pen from her neighbour, she set out to catch the culprit. But she could never have imagined the danger they would face when they found him and the things she would discover along the way – things like magic, ghosts and witchcraft.
REVIEW: Robert Favretto, author.
Ouston’s first book in the Fearless Friends series, Graffiti Fighters, makes an exciting read for those who enjoy a junior action-packed mystery.
Magic, ghosts, and witchcraft are all rolled into the mix of this story, underlining the theme: ''Do unto others as you would like them to do to you".
Evie is shocked when she discovers a graffiti vandal has targeted her neighbor’s fence – and she’s determined to track down the person responsible. But her shock escalates to anger when the vandal makes it personal. With the support of her cousin, Willem, and a neighbor’s special pen, she sets out on a dangerous mission to catch the culprit.
I found Fearless Friends – Graffiti Hunters a gripping and enjoyable read. Ouston weaves a suspenseful tale of drama and excitement. I particularly like the way the characters shine through with their courage and spirit. The story is fast-paced, with an intriguing plot that leaves you wanting more.
Middle primary readers will love this book and the installments to follow.
