After the popular hunting books, Cor Blimey, Mate and Blow Me Socks Off, Marion has united with her hunter-mad son Jason to write Grab ya Boots, the greatest-ever hunting book for kids.
There’s a real mish-mash of writing in Grab ya Boots. Bush poetry, funnies, more funnies and even more funnies, do’s and don’ts and other bits and bobs. Best of all, there’s heaps of adventurous stories that even old fellas would like. Some are very true, others are half-half or barely true, then there are the downright made-up stories.
We have a hilarious comic skit and a couple of stories from Cor Blimey, Mate and Blow Your Socks Off – for those who missed out. And we’ve even snuck in a few fishy things.
Most exciting in Grab ya Boots are stories from our Kiwi young hunters themselves. And great photos of them beside their catch.
Some of the most heart-warming tales are about the unconditional love between the hunter-gatherer and their hunting dogs.
So – hunker on down, throw away your mobile phones, unplug from everything and hold this greatest-ever hunting book in your hot little hands and have heaps of cries, fun and laughs.
And when you’ve finished:
