A story of transportation and life in a new world from Australia's Children's LaureateAt the tender age of eight, chimney sweep Tom Appleby is convicted of stealing and sentenced to deportation to Botany Bay. As one of the members of the First Fleet, he arrives in a country that seemingly has little to offer - or little that the English are used to, anyway.
PRAISE FOR NANBERRY: BLACK BROTHER WHITE
'For really, really good Australian young-adult (and middle-grade) historical fiction, Jackie French has always been a winner ... With Nanberry: Black Brother White she delivers an excellent fictionalised account of the First Fleet's settlement at Sydney Cove ... a powerful novel' - Australian Bookseller & Publisher, 5 stars
'She is one of few masters who can embed historic characters in rattling good tales, and her meticulous research is seamlessly inserted so that you live the detail rather than learn it. Even if you are not into history, Nanberry will hook you in ... Irresistible for history buffs of any age' - Good Reading Magazine, 5 stars
'I've been telling all my friends to read this book, and to give it to their kids to read. It's absolutely engrossing' - Herald Sun
