FOUR SMALL STONES
#1 in the Urban Hunters series
Growing up, finding girls and saving the Dreamtime will have to wait; Billy has other problems to deal with at the moment.
Could a kangaroo foil his brother's attempts to turn him into a galah? Well, not alone it couldn't, but add a blanket of bats, a mouthful of maggots and a crystal cave to the mix, and he just might stand a chance. Four Small Stones, a game only a bunch of bored brothers from the bush could dream up.
Jaw dropping. Sickening. Hilarious. Don't miss it.
And NEVER, EVER, eat one of Billy's biscuits.

Could a kangaroo foil Billy’s older brother’s attempts to turn him into a galah? Well, not alone it couldn’t, but add a blanket of bats, a mouthful of maggots and a crystal cave to the mix, and he just might stand a chance. Time to unleash the warrior within and grow up.
‘I was cracking up laughing. It’s really good!!’ Kris, Australia
The spirit of Billy’s mother wants him to go walkabout through the whitefella culture, to find some girls and a future for his clan. He doesn’t want to go. She can’t be ignored. Now he’s faced with the fight of his life against wildlife and a torturous initiation.
Billy’s search for girls begins, if only he knew what one looked like and he had a decent pair of pants to wear.
Could life get anymore difficult? Why yes it could, he could fall in love ...
‘Love your writing. Vivid and visual. Every word created a picture in my mind and it was a joy to read.’ Jessica, USA
‘Truly enjoyable! I can’t wait to check out the next in the series ...’ Cassie, USA
“I really loved Billy and his adventures. I can’t remember when I last read a story with such an original and likeable character. Billy is tribal but contemporary, he’s funny but seriously determined. Billy is all about outwitting his brothers with some hilarious pranks, and he’s all about saving his tribe by heading off to the big unknown city to find some girls.
I laughed with Billy, I cheered him on and I learnt so much about indigenous Australian culture and survival. After reading the first three books in the Urban Hunters series, I have a whole new appreciation for the Australian bush and Billy’s tribe.
This writer has done something rare – he’s come up with something so original that I can’t even compare it to other books. It stands alone. And his humour is really sensational – just when I think I can’t laugh anymore, he twists the tale just another little bit and notches the hilarity up even further.
Can’t wait for the next book in this series – hurry up Gary Taaffe, get it uploaded!”
