It’s an outback adventure like no other when a ‘skinny’ stumbles across the secret lair of a Hairy Holer brother duo.
Beg and Red are a couple of Hairy Holers living life in the Australian bush. Cruising the desert. Drinking grub tea. The usual things.
But when outback explorer Joplin (a skinny) stumbles right into them, everything changes. Beg’s the friendly brother. He wants to show Joplin around. Teach him the hairy ropes. Red… well, Red wants to eat him, but that’s Red for you!
This is the start of a great JF graphic novel series. Written by renowned Yawuru graphic novelist Brenton E McKenna, it brings legend to life in a super fun way. Yeti, Big Foot, Hairy Man, Abominable Snowman — they are the legends of many places, called lots of different things with different stories and quirks. This is the Hairy Holers’ story, and it’s a wild, wild ride!
With a cliff-hanger ending, and the promise of some serious challenges to come for our heroes Beg and Red, I’m looking forward to the next instalment of Hairy Holes.
