Here are seven collections of children’s stories – 36 in all – set in the Australian Outback and including a clear biblical message every time. With over 100,000 of these in print, it is obvious that these are firm favourites with children. Spindles and his sister Freckles experience exciting adventures with their many animal friends and through them all, wise old Redgum guides them with his sage advice. And these are the kind of adventures that could happen to almost any child. Children can easily identify with them. Designed mainly for children of eight years old and over to read for themselves, these stories will also delight younger children who listen to them.
