The Tania Abbey Adventures
Winner of 2018 CALEB Prize, Children's Book Category and Grand Prize.
Tania’s all set to go on camp! She’s planned everything and even arranged for her best friend, Emily, to come too. But there’s one small problem: Emily’s parents gave away the money that would have bought her ticket.
Luckily the town talent show offers Camp Tickets as a prize – all they have to do is win one for Emily. But even as they rehearse to win, no one’s expecting Tania’s own ticket to go missing. And when it does, Tania knows she’s going to need more than just talent to avert maximum disaster.
Camp Max is illustrated by Leigh Hedstrom and published by Wombat Books, 2018. It is available in paperback and ebook formats.
