For the slightly older crowd (10 +) check out ‘Banjo Tully’ by Justin D’Ath. Justin was born in NZ and has lived in Australia since the 70s, so he knows a lot about the Australian climate. This book is about 15-year-old Banjo who is faced with losing his horse Milly along with the family farm. Banjo raises awareness of drought and climate change during an 800-kilometre horse ride to Canberra. This book has something for everyone: horses, adventure, climate change, diversity, community spirit, Aussie mateship, and strong male and female teen characters. Highly recommended!
