Welcome to the Clancy of the Outback series
December 2021 sees the release of the Clancy of the Outback series - written by Phil Kettle and Bob Anderson and illustrated by Shane McGowan. The four book pack is published by ambapress
Eleven-year old Clancy, has been thrust into life out woop-woop. These are his stories of his outback adventures at his uncle’s sheep station.
Phil gave a great virtual presentation. He altered his content and delivery from Prep to year 2 really well.

It was with pleasure that we welcomed Phil through the Virtual Author Visit last week. The process was successful and Phil had the children eating out of his hands! He answered many questions and spoke passionately about his writing. The kids were engaged and enthused. Thank you so much for the opportunity. We look forward to negotiating Phil's presence in person at our 2020 Writers Festival.

Thank you for organising Phil Kettle for us. He was another success story and one of his strengths is that he is an assured writer and the children appreciated that it is his real occupation and has been for years. His books are well known to our students. Phil was prepared to be easy going and also fitted in a visit to a year 5 class which was not on his program. I really appreciate this flexibility.

Both authors were great for their target age groups (Phil Kettle and James Roy). Very easy to deal with – no difficult request and amiable to students and staff.
Would certainly recommend them.
Here are some of the student’s comments:
“I was inspired to write more stories and read more books” (Moya 3B)
“It was inspiring!” Lewis 3B
