Queasy Rider

By James Roy

Whoever dares, wins the loot.

When the kids find an old bike, Nobby thinks it’s a piece of junk. Thicky thinks it has potential. Shirley just sees money. Lots of money. And that’s when the plan is hatched. They are going to be rich! Or are they?

  • Short, fast-paced novels, laced with a good dose of humour and which make few demands on the reader.
  • Aiming at 8-14 year old age group – especially those who haven’t yet been “struck” by the reading bug. Similar readership to Penguin’s “Aussie Chomp” series, but with a more graphic and funky approach, to try to appeal to a wider audience.
  • Design includes funky chapter heads, wide leading, generous type and plenty of white space.
