Outback Adventure

RRP $9.99

Hi! I'm Juliet. I'm ten years old.
And I'm nearly a vet!

It's really hot and dry in the outback where my grandparents live. I'm so excited that Chelsea is coming with us to visit them. I wonder what outback animals we'll see? My cousin Jarrod will be there, but I get the feeling he doesn't like me very much and – even worse – he doesn't seem to like animals! Maybe this is my chance to change his mind . . .

About the Author

Rebecca Johnson is an Australian author, teacher and mother of two. Juliet, Nearly a Vet is her first fiction series with Penguin. She has also written a best-selling non-fiction series of adventures featuring Australian wildlife, which has sold more than 2.6 million copies. From the author: When I was growing up, I was mad about animals. Not just the normal kind like cats, dogs and horses, but anything that moved.

The best part of all was that I actually lived next door to a vet! We are still great friends and he's 95 now. One of my fondest memories of growing up is going out in a canoe with my sister and brother after a f lood and -rescuing animals that were stranded on sticks and twigs and ferrying them to safety. Not every girl I know would be happiest in a canoe full of mice, bugs and the odd green snake, but I'm sure Juliet would!
