Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Audrey is an engaging heroine with a vivid imagination and an inquisitive mind."  —School Library Journal
School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—In this sequel to Audrey of the Outback (Little Hare, 2009), Audrey is thrilled when she and her family journey to the small town of Beltana, where she marvels at intriguing sights such as glass windows, multiple shops, and trains. When her mother becomes ill, Audrey and her little brother must stay with a stern, older widow. During this time, Audrey struggles to please her guardian, to no avail. She continually makes mistakes such as leaving the gate open and allowing goats into the garden, and she opens the curtains that keep the sunlight from fading the carpet. Gradually she and Mrs. Paterson learn to appreciate one another, developing a friendship that comes to fruition when the woman reveals a tragedy from her past. Captioned illustrations are scattered throughout. Audrey is an engaging heroine with a vivid imagination and an inquisitive mind.—Donna Atmur, Los Angeles Public Library
