One our favourite Aussie authors, A. L. Tait, has taken some time out of her busy schedule to share this list of some favourite adventure series for tween readers by Australian authors.
Adventure stories come in many guises. Some are fast-paced, heart-in-mouth contemporary thrillers. Some are full of magic and mayhem. Some have mystery at their heart, some have history in their foundations.
One thing they all have in common is the ability to grasp and engage the interest of a young reader, and to take them on an exciting journey that often lasts many, many books (and, as parents, we all know the joy that comes with a child discovering a series to keep them going).
In Australia, we are spoilt for choice, with many of our best adventure series making a mark on the world literary stage, while some remain our very own best-kept secrets.
25 Adventure Series for Tween Readers from Australian Authors.
Here are 25 adventure series, some brand new, some well established, by Australian authors to keep your young reader engrossed.
There is both a booktopia link (best for Aussies) and an Amazon link for the first book in each series, where available. Some of these links are affiliate links – if you something via the link I get a small commission at no extra cost to you.
