    Comments about Meet Ned Kelly:

    Got this book for my son to use for book week. It was just perfect the way it explains the story of Ned Kelly. Especially for young kids. My son just couldn't wait to turn the page to see what he (Ned) did next. The illustrations are just fantastic. We will be reading this book years to come.
