Do You Dare Series
'Do You Dare fills a much-needed gap for engaging Australian historical fiction for children readers aged 8 to 12. These fast-paced, adventure-driven stories effortlessly bring to life so many facets of our past. But most importantly, they're compelling reads, driven by vivid action, great characters and some thrilling moments of jeopardy!'
Written by some of Australia's leading authors, the series introduces some of the lesser-known elements of our history through fast-moving stores set against an historical background of fact.
Our Australia Girl Series
The idea for the series was born when Jane Godwin, Publisher, Books for Children and Young Adults at Penguin, noticed that there seemed to be a lack of "meaty and memorable books" for young girls. "I noticed little girls reading a lot of mass market, tween-oriented material with an emphasis on fashion, make-up and celebrity and that's fine, there's a place for it, but I felt that young female readers deserved something more. I also know that parents are concerned about the impact of 'tween' titles, worried that they're making this generation of girls grow up too quickly."
