Christine Bongers’ freshly released,Drongoes, is a magic little yarn about confronting fears, surmounting obstacles …true grit, and above all friendship…A genuine winner.” Boomerang Books.

“Highly recommended….full of humour and fun…an entertaining story about what winning really means.” ReadPlus.

“This is a ripper, bonza, beaut little story which celebrates the greatness of a good mate and the Australian spirit of having a go…The word ‘drongo’ is beautifully explained at the conclusion of the story …a great lead into a bit of research as a follow on reading extension activity.” Children’s Books Daily.

“Drongoes …is perfect for young readers…but with a storyline which will also satisfy older reluctant readers…a funny story highlighting the notions of winning not being everything, of loyalty, and of the great Aussie spirit of ‘giving it a go’.” Buzz Words.
