Description of this Electronic Book
When Little Else joins Ma Calico's Bush Circus, she becomes La Petite Elsie and does leaps and lofty tumbles with Joe, The Flying Giuseppe, and the crowds love them. But mean Ma Calico won't pay them a penny. The circus horses are sick of hauling Ma around the country, and the other performers want Little Else to stand up to her. So Little Else decides to track down the wild bushranger Harry Blast. Would he be a match for Ma? Julie Hunt's adventure stories are funny and full of larger-than-life characters. No other heroine has quite as much courage, or luck, as daring Little Else. Fortune favours the bold in the Little Else series!

Julie Hunt has written poetry and performed with the Kazakstan Kowgerls. When she wrote Little Else: Trick Rider, she discovered that one book didn't have enough room for this daring little heroine. She needed more space! She needed three books! Julie's first picture books, Away! Away!, illustrated by Priscilla Nielsen, and The Answerman, illustrated by Maya Alexandrovna, are soon to be followed by two more: Precious Little, written with Sue Moss and illustrated by Gaye Chapman, and The Coat, illustrated by Ron Brooks. Beth Norling is an author and illustrator of children's books, as well as a sculptor and installation artist. She has taught illustration and illustrated many children's books, including Mokie and Bik, by Wendy Orr. Her own picture books include Sister Night and Sister Day, The Stone Baby, Little Sisters Are.and Little Brothers Are.
