Our Australian Girl: Poppy Comes Home (Book 4)

Gabrielle Wang, Lucia Masciullo

It’s 1864 … and Poppy, disguised as a lost princess from India, has joined a travelling medicine show. They’re about to enter the town of Beechworth, where her brother Gus told her he was heading months before. Poppy is so happy to think that she might find Gus at last! But when she follows the clues, they lead her to the cemetery. Gus couldn’t really be there, could he? Join Poppy in the final of four exciting stories about a Gold Rush girl who dreams of a better life.

Review

This series will already be familiar to a lot of our readers, who will no doubt be eagerly awaiting this new batch. After we were introduced to Rose, Grace, Letty and Poppy earlier this year, the Our Australian Girl series has just continued to get better and better. Each character is the star of her own set of books within the series, which spans across different time periods from Australia’s history. In this fourth collection, Grace is trying to be a good servant to her mistress in 1808 while caring for baby Alice; Letty’s time on a sheep run in 1841 is coming to an end due to drought; Poppy joins a travelling medicine show in 1864; and Rose gets ready to celebrate Federation in 1901. The diverse characters are skilfully brought to life by some of our best children’s authors writing today, helping to make Our Australian Girl the perfect introduction to Australian history for readers eight and up.
