Product description

Product Description

Maddie and Toby love fishing, and live in a small mill town where people are dying from ‘Mill Flu’. Keen to catch the biggest rainbow trout ever, ‘Mister Rainbow’, they disobey orders, fish in the ‘Big Pool’ and find a recluse living in a shack in the bush. Maddie falls into the big pool and almost drowns, but is saved by the recluse. Maddie becomes ill, but Toby continues to fish and finds people pumping toxic waste into the Rainbow River. He contacts the Environment Protection Authority and the police, and investigations begin.

Toby learns that the old recluse is Colonel Bolt, a former soldier who was highly-decorated during the Vietnam War, and an amazing artist who sketches pictures of his war memories. The colonel collapses near his shack, Toby finds him and arranges his transport to hospital. Finding two war medals in his shack, Toby e-mails the army and tells them of the colonel’s plight. Will the army respond?

Maddie and Toby enter one of Colonel Bolt’s sketches in an art competition, selling Mister Rainbow’s Magic Bait at a local market to earn the entry fee. Then, Toby goes missing. Desperate to find her fishing partner, Maddie calls Colonel Bolt for help. Will they find Toby alive? Will the colonel win a prize in the art competition, and will they catch Mister Rainbow?

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating story of youth; adventure & courage 17 May 2016
By Vicki CASE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Award-winning Australian author; Clancy Tucker; has done it yet again with Mister Rainbow. Clancy captures the essence of Australia & Australians beautifully in this book.

Toby & Maddie are two young kids growing up in an Australian country town. Their days are spent together enjoying all the beauty & serenity their environment has to offer.

Then their paradise comes crashing down; people become sick & some die. Fish in the river die in the hundreds. Everyone is in a quandary to understand why. Then; whilst his friend Maddie is ill; Toby stumbles on the cause. Unscrupulous people are pumping toxic waste into the river. The town reservoir is polluted; together with the river & wildlife.

Toby; who is initially disbelieved; seeks help from people he has met along the way & finds it.

Mister Rainbow captivated me from the very beginning & my intrigue was held until the very end. I didn't want to put this book down; desperate to see where it; and these young kids; would take me next.

Purchase Mister Rainbow today and enjoy this incredible story. I highly recommend Mister Rainbow to people of all ages.
