¿Tribal Scarring¿ was quite a serious work. Billy is still guide
“Tribal Scarring” was quite a serious work. Billy is still guided by his mother to leave his people and perpetuate his clan. In order to prepare himself, Billy must exhibit bravery and the willingness to know that sometimes you have to do the difficult things to do in the name of duty. Taaffe weaves culture, history and tradition into the narrative so that children (and adults) come away having been entertained but with a new knowledge of an old culture.Was this review helpful?

The title “Tribal Scarring” comes from when Billy is looking to provide for his family hunting kangaroos and one of them scratches him. The approach of Billy’s family to the wound is so separate from the modern reaction that is serves as a perfect example of something that takes a child out of their modern environment and to one that many North American children will never come close to experiencing.
Taaffe’s series is a wonderful action series for boy and girls who don’t mind a little grit in their stories.
