    Walkabout is a very interesting book. It was very descriptive, it had very good details. Everything you needed to know about the characters, you found out. Two kids, a brother and a sister, were lost after a plane crash in Australia. They were hungry, and scared. The next day, they started to walk in the hot desert. They wanted to go to where their uncle was: Adelaide. Even though they did not know what way Adelaide was, they were hoping to find someone who could help them. The story continues with the two kids lost in Australia with nothing to eat. Until thy find some fruit but that is not the only thing they find. Behind them was a boy behind a bush naked and looking at them for a while. Even though they did not understand each other, the bush boy managed to find out that they were hungry and thirsty. The bush boy was out in the desert alone because he was going to become a man. even though he was supposed to be on his own, he decided to help the two defenseless children. AS the story goes on, the bush boy helps the two kids find their way to their uncle¿s home. as that goes on, peter catches a cold and gets very tired It makes it harder for all of them to travel. So then there is some thing else that complicates the story and that is that the bush boy gets the cold from peter. And once again the journey gets harder for the three children. The book is very interesting and enjoyable it describes the characters and every thing that the author wants described very well. The author does not leave anything out. Even though I had to start over one time, I enjoyed reading this book very much.

    Walkabout review

    This book is very educational about the australian outback, but, it is not very exciting. Nothing Amazing happens. Plus it doesn't really tell you much about how the children got there and if they were saved. It Was an okay book. You will like it if you want to learn about the outback.
