  • Description
  • Details
The Don is my hero because he is the greatest batsman in the world. Dad says all Australians are proud of The Don, even those who don’t normally follow cricket. He says The Don is an inspiration to everyone because whenever he gets a big score, people smile and forget about their troubles.

Victor McDonald is cricket mad. He plays for his school team and his dream is to meet his cricketing hero, Don Bradman.

But Australia is in the grip of the Great Depression. Work isn’t easy to come by. Victor’s father has lost his job and the family is moving to Sydney.

Despite the daily struggle of life in inner Sydney Victor not only sees Don Bradman in action, he even gets to meet him. With the England cricket team coming to Australia, Victor knows it’s going to be a great cricket season.

But England has some nasty surprises in store. This will be one cricket season the Australians — and Victor — will never forget.
