Tommy Bell, Bushranger Boy is a series featuring Tommy’s time travelling escapades that take him face-to-face with some of Australia’s most notorious bushrangers. In Book 5, Tommy Bell has his hands full with Ben Hall’s devious bunch of bushrangers. Join Tommy as he gets into even more trouble in his latest adventure.

Book 5 – Gang of Thieves
School camp can be fun, but not when it’s run by a nasty bully who picks on Tommy Bell and his friends. But when Tommy’s magic cabbage-tree hat takes him back in time to meet up with Ben Hall and his gang, Tommy discovers that even in the gold rush days there were bullies … and they were on both sides of the law!  They also really knew how to make trouble …

  1. Tommy Bell Bushranger Boy – Gang of Thieves, is the fifth book in the Tommy Bell, Bushranger Boy collection. It’s a remarkable Australian series where fictional characters watch Australian history unfold before their eyes. I highly recommend it for schools, independent readers, and for kids who love Australian history.

  2. Thanks very much Jane. I read the Tommy Bell books with my 7 year old last year as we travelled around Australia in the caravan. He absolutely loved them. I honestly think they were the ‘turning point’ in his love for reading.
    I have been given a 3/4 primary class for next year and think the students will love them as much as my son did. He absolutely did not want me taking his books into school with me.
    I love the rich language choices you’ve made throughout your books. They open up so many beautiful teaching moments to extend vocabulary and demonstrate the effectiveness of phrasing.
