A high-octane adventure series for children written in partnership with the Royal Flying Doctor Service
It’s a race against time and the destructive forces of nature!

Twelve-year-old Alice lives in the outback mining town of Mount Magnet. One morning, she is struck down with acute appendicitis. To make things worse, the nearest hospital is hundreds of kilometres away and Alice’s appendix could rupture at any moment. An urgent call is made to the Royal Flying Doctor Service and a plane is despatched. But as a massive storm approaches, the pressure is on for the RFDS to get to Alice and transport her to the hospital before it hits.

Reviews

The stories are true to life and written in a very accessible way that will suit not-so-strong readers as well as those who are sailing competently through their literary quests. They revolve around the outstanding and unique work of the RFDS and the many patients, emergencies and emotional dramas this wonderful service supports.

Sue Warren, Just So Stories

Emergency Echo is part of a new series about the Royal Flying Doctor Service by George Ivanoff that is perfect for the newly independent reader wanting a good, solid adventure series. Well-researched and accompanied by information about the Service, the places, the illness (so readers are already informed of what to expect if it befalls them) it is a welcome addition to the quality literature being written for young readers. Authentic and engaging and different, they will appeal to both boys and girls who will be asking you to get Remote Rescue (already available) and Medical Mission and Fast Flight (coming in May).

Barbara Braxton, OZ_TLNet

Both books in this new series open with a sense of excitement and intrigue that will grab young readers from the very first page . . . Fantastic adventures with one of our most significant not-for-profit organisations and a reminder of the vastness and remoteness of this geographically unusual country.

Evie Marshall, Magpies Magazine
