This story is one for all the boys and girls who love playing sport in the backyard. It is set in a back garden under the cool, spreading shade of a big Mango tree. It describes all the chaos and disagreements that are typical of a children’s cricket match. The stars of the show are Jenny, who catches the ball while she is pegging washing, and Bluey, the cattle dog, who steals the ball too. The story is set in the stinking summer heat in Brisbane, complete with cicadas, icy-poles and Mum’s old veggie patch. Leigh Brown’s illustrations add magic to this lovely story.
