About Kylie Reynolds

Kylie was a bush kid from the far outback of Australia. She loved riding her bicycle on the long distance camping trips - often of several weeks duration that took us to the next job.. She loved writing stories she could share with other children. Kylie did her schooling by correspondence (distance education). On our trips (bikes being our only transport by the way) she did her lessons sitting under any convenient shady shrub or tree or by firelight. Several times during the long summer school holidays we made camp in a city and Kylie would get a newspaper delivery round - filling in for some kid who was on holidays. She enjoyed joining in the free school holiday programs run for kids in the high rise flats. Kylie wrote “A Bunch of Battlers” based on her experiences in the bush and in the city.
“Trekking To The Sunset”, “Rascal” and “Flashing Pedals” are fiction based on actual happenings in her life. When Kylie developed a fatal illness she showed great courage, always thinking of others. Kylie asked that I try to get her stories published so other children could enjoy them. On her website (http://www.mulgatraining.com.au/littlebanjo/) Kylie wrote of “my musings on life, God, poems, ponderings, & thinkings..” Kylie's Mum

Review by: Sophia DeLuna on Aug. 01, 2013 :
Amazing that this story was written by an 8-year-old girl!
To me as a German it was very interesting to read about Kylie's adventure. Here, something like this would be impossible - so much so that it would be unbelievable, even in a fiction story, if it played in Germany. It must have been wonderful for Kylie to have lived such a free life.

Thank you, Mrs Reynolds, for sharing your daughter's stories!
