Author D A Doraisamy is a primary school teacher who travelled the world and fell in love with Africa, India and many other places. Her stories reveal the natural world as encountered by her 13-year-old protagonist, Hugo Blake who sketches his travels. Through her own colourful adventures, the author hopes to influence her readers to boldly interact with any society. `Children should be encouraged to feel at home in reality. I want my readers to take a break from their computer games and `virtual worlds' to enter the real world and embrace the future with confidence'. Her first book Action Africa would appeal to young readers for adventure. It is neither fantasy based nor war dominated. It is a story of courage and fun with an identifiable hero. Action India is the second in the series, where adventures with elephants and trains draw the reader into the unbelievable. The adventure in Action Australia, her third book, is full of danger and surprise and is derived from the author's experiences while living in outback Australia. The fourth in the series, Action Down Under is packed with the unexpected that leads to so much drama, it will have you gasping. Hugo had no idea Australia held this much action. The fifth in the series, Action in The Long White Cloud deals with danger, mishap and near death. Hugo must deal with the consequences of his actions and so develops a better understanding of what it is to be truly human.

Customer Reviews

I've read the whole series so far and I can see how the author has let her character mature. This book, and the rest are both instructional and done in a way that is not lecturing but subtle. My eleven-year-old couldn't wait for the next in the series, Action India and when I compare the two, I see how the protagonist Hugo is maturing. This is a delightful series without ghouls and guns and so refreshing. A very pleased mum.
