Marion teams up with her hunting-mad son, Jason, and young Kiwi hunters to present an exciting collection of sporting and adventure stories, poems and ‘a million things hunters should know’. Grab ya Boots will suit any intermediate child who loves the outdoors and loves adventure but who doesn’t like to read a whole book. Some of the most heart-warming tales are about the unconditional love between a hunter and their dog. The book is illustrated with photographs, and quirky sketches by West Coast artist Robyn Hoglund.
Each yarn might be true or partly true, or totally made up, and a cartoon story has been thrown in for good measure. There’s a bit of fishing – like the great snapper story – and two tales from Cor Blimey, Mate and Blow Your Socks Off! for those who missed out on those popular books by Marion.
Most exciting and fresh are stories straight from the pens of our young huntsmen, every one with a photograph of them with their quarry.
Grab ya Boots encourages children to put away their mobile phones, unplug themselves from technology and read. As they do, they’ll be transported into the world of brave, bold, courageous, fearful and funny stories – even jokes. They’ll be entertained and enthralled, and when they are finished, you can bet on them rushing outside to grab their boots.

Marion is delighted to be working with Kiwi and International Illustrator Richard Hoit on Elton the Flying Crane - a children’s picture book series beginning with four titles. Elton, the third biggest helicopter in the world, fights wildfires and carries heavy-lift jobs and rescues. It’s a super-exciting series and children are sure to fall in love with Elton and his friends, Connie the helicopter and Flaps the aeroplane bomber.
