    One thought on “Rotters and Squatters, 1820-1850”

    1. This book was given to me by my daughter. I think she thought it was a humorous account of Australian history rather than a kid's book. Nevertheless I enjoyed reading it, as it was an easy, fun read of a quick history between 1820 and 1850.

    2. Edward (10) rates it 3.5. He says a great historical recount of what the English endured in the years following their arrival at Botany Bay.

    3. Bit of Australian history for Australia Day - this is a sort of Horrible Histories for Australia and will appeal to kids who like the HH books.
