IT’S BOYS VS GIRLS!

Cricket-mad twins Millie and Maggie are on holidays in Queensland at their uncle’s caravan park. Straight away, they notice a group of kids on the oval playing cricket. The girls are dying to join in, but apparently it’s ‘boys only’. Millie and Maggie are not impressed – they’re huge Hobart Hurricanes fans and can bat, bowl and field as well as any boy!

It’s time to come up with a plan to show these Brisbane Heat-loving boys that girls can play too! Meanwhile, there’s something strange going on at the caravan park, with all manner of things slowly disappearing – including a beloved cricket bat!

Will the girls outshine the boys and unravel the mystery before their holiday is over?

About the Author

Michael Panckridge

Inspired by his passion for sport and desire to get reluctant readers engaged in books, primary and middle school teacher Michael Panckridge put his mind to finding out what kids want to read. Some years later he finds himself the author of over 35 books – his work ranging from the bestselling Legends and Anniversary Legends series, the Toby Jones series with cricket star Brett Lee, The League of Legends series with rugby league great Laurie Daley, through to his latest novels including The Cursed, The Vanishings and The Immortal. These latter novels are intriguing and sinister adventure books with elements of mystery and suspense that keep the reader guessing – not to be read at night! Michael has drawn on his experience in the school environment for his latest book called Be Bully Free. Co-authored with Cathie Thornton, it is a practical hands-on guide for individuals, families and schools.

Praise for Big Bash League 3: Double Delivery

“Middle to older primary aged readers of both sexes will readily identify with the characters in each of these novels and would enjoy the vicarious challenges and victories which these well-plotted, highly credible sports fiction books deliver.”

Russ Merrin, Magpies Magazine

“With decent-sized typeface, chapter headings and illustrations, these stories are easy-to-read and fast-paced, and offer good reading especially to reluctant readers, both boys and girls.”

Di Bates, Buzz Words Books

“Big Bash League is a fantastic series for cricket lovers or children who enjoy cricket and love an unsolved mystery. Panckridge has cleverly crossed genres and created really interesting storylines in this non-gender specific series. Maggie and Milly in Double Delivery are two feisty girls who argue their way into the boys-only cricket team with some mind boggling techniques, and solve a local mystery along the way. Here are two girls who can bat, bowl and field as well as think outside the square.”

Katy Gerner, CBCA Reading Time

“In this action-packed junior fiction series, cricket is front and center, but there is so much more going on than just playing sport. From new pals to dealing with self-doubt, these books bring together a number of elements to both entertain and educate young readers.”

Stephanie Ward, CBCA Reading Time
