ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- It's been lovely to see the proliferation of books celebrating women and girl-power, but we can't forget that boys (and girls) also need to see that men have also defied stereotypes, stood up for their beliefs, broken new ground! There's Jack Mundey or Deng Thiak Adut; Eddie Ayres or Eddie Woo; Bob Brown or Tim Flannery; Mei Quong Tart or Akira Isogawa; Archie Roach or Paul Kelly - the list goes on, covering all aspects of society and achievement. This is a companion to Shout Out to the Girls, and all royalties go to The Smith Family, so it achieves more good things! Lindy Jones


Australia has some seriously ace men who have broken new ground, stood up for what they believed in, achieved incredible things and defied stereotypes. You'll find some of those men inside the pages of this book - from astronaut Andy Thomas to YouTube maths teacher Eddie Woo, sportsman Johnathan Thurston and dancer David McAllister. Whether they end up being role models for girls or boys, it doesn't matter, because they're ace regardless!

Brought to life by colourful illustrations from Australian male artists, High Five to the Boys is an uplifting and illuminating read for all ages.

Royalties from sales of this book go to The Smith Family.
