Award-winning Australian writer Jackie French has published her second children's book in the Secret Histories series.



Barney and the Secret of the Whales touches on an untapped genre for children; fictional stories based on early colony life in Australia.

The story of Barney and the Secret of the Whales follows Barney Bean in the year 1791.

Barney, a young lad who lost his Mother in the grueling journey across the seas to Australia, is keen to make his fortune when he hears a sailor tell him secrets of wealth to be made from whaling. Will Barney brave the seas to chase the wealth he hears of, and leave the land he now calls home?

Barney and the Secret of the Whales is the sequel to Birrung the Secret Friend; the first in the Secret histories series.

Jackie French focuses on a secret, but important part of our history, and one that all Australian children should be exposed to.

Suitable for children aged 8 plus.
RRP: $12.99
