Blue Weston is an eleven-year-old tomboy living in Hardbake Plains in rural New South Wales. Written in a diary-format with cartoon accompaniments, in the style of 'Diary of A Wimpy Kid' or 'Dork Diaries,' this series examines life in a typical Australian farming community with tenderness and humour. Country kids will relate to the young heroine's adventures in rural Australia, as much as city-dwelling children will enjoy reading about a way of life which may be new to them.
Katrina Nannestad is responsible for both the text and illustrations, ensuring a flawless continuity in style. This hilarious series of chapter books is perfect for reluctant readers aged 8 to 12 years, and will be enjoyed by both boys and girls due to Blue's feisty tomboy nature.
