On Track

  • Named in the New Zealand Listener’s  50 Best Books for Kids, 2015.

Everyone saysFINAL On Track Cover Small
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?

RRP $16.95

‘A sensitive and gently humorous portrayal of dealing with difference. The family relationships, and the complicated tangle of sibling rivalry and love, all ring with truth.’ Wendy Orr, author of Nim’s Island
