Jump into the saddle with Riley, Uncle Max, Aunt Martha, and Cousin Alice as they visit the Australian outback! Riley must find ways to help endangered koalas while learning some “jackaroo” cowboy skills along the way.

A children’s book series unlike any other, the award-winning Adventures of Riley titles feature non-stop action, wild and weird animal facts, real-life scientists, and stunning visuals that blend vibrant character art with spectacular panoramic photographs.

“The wonderful Adventures of Riley series is a smooth combination of fiction and non-fiction that is perfect for curious minds…The likable characters are a wonderful medium to share and create a learning experience for the reader. The intelligent layout of this series means that it can be read and enjoyed by children with varied reading skills. This is a series that can only have an admirable impact on our children. Fun, educational, and environmentally aware—a must for all schools and libraries, including your home library!” – Bianca Schulze, The Children’s Book Review
