‘A terrific series for reluctant readers.’

‘I highly recommend Tommy Bell Bushranger Boy: The Masked Man, not only as an engaging way for children to learn about Australian history, but also as a high-interest chapter book for independent readers.’
– Julieann Wallace, Book Reviews & Writer’s Ink

When Tommy Bell’s father’s car breaks down on a road trip, Tommy and Martin are stranded overnight in a motel room in a strange country town. Things get even weirder when Tommy finds himself roaming the deserted streets on a moonlit night, way back in 1869. But wait – is that an armed robbery in progress? And who is that masked man?

  1. This book number eight in these entertaining Australian chapter book series bring alive a small snapshot of history in a readable format with illustrations complementing the theme. The adventures are short and include relevant information without burdening the story. Great for all young readers of chapter books age range 7-10 years. Reviewed by Claire Stuckey

  3. 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.
