FINAL On Track Cover Small

Kathryn’s middle grade verse novel, ‘On Track‘ was released by UQP in June 2015.

Everyone says
you couldn’t get two brothers
more different than
Shaun and Toby.

Toby struggles at school, has a stumbly, fumbly, bumbly body and thinks that Sports Day is the worst day of the year. No matter how hard he tries, he’s not good at anything … except running away from his ‘big, better brother’.

Shaun is top of his class and does everything first, better, best! He can’t wait for Sports Day — D-Day for discus. But when his ‘joke of a brother’ is around, nobody notices the things Shaun can do.

Will Toby and Shaun get on track before Sports Day?

She’s big.
She’s smart.
She’s mean.

She picks on me and
I don’t know how to make her stop.

Mud small

This is the cow who was chewing her cud
as she went for a drink and got stuck in the mud!

Who will rescue the rescuers?

Wash hands after reading this very muddy book!
