Hal and roger hunt books
Willard Price's Adventure series to be relaunched | Children's books | The GuardianIn case you don't know them, they're about the exploits of two preternaturally mature teenagers, Hal and Roger, who travel the world with their father capturing animals. The series was one of the landmarks of my childhood reading - partly because they helped fill the void left when I finished the last Famous Five book. My husband was also a Willard Price fan in his youth, so he too was excited. And we both had the same thought: "Fantastic. Holly can read them" Holly being our daughter, who is also about to touch the post-Famous Five void. But after the first enthusiasm, I began to worry.

The "Adventure" series is a collection of children's adventure novels by Canadian-born American author Willard Price. The fourteen-book series chronicles the exploits of budding teenage zoologists Hal and Roger Hunt , as they travel around the world capturing exotic and dangerous animals for their father's wildlife collection. My aim in writing the Adventure series for young people was to lead them to read by making reading exciting and full of adventure. At the same time I want to inspire an interest in wild animals and their behavior. Judging from the letters I have received from boys and girls around the world, I believe I have helped open to them the worlds of books and natural history.
From battling cannibals to wrestling crocodiles, capturing two-headed snakes to riding whales, Price's much-loved Adventure series ran to 14 books, written by the natural historian between and Now McGowan, author of young adult novels including Henry Tumour and The Knife That Killed Me, has been commissioned by the Willard Price estate to write four new books in the children's series, starring the children of the original characters in a contemporary setting. The first, with a working title of Leopard Adventure, will see Hal's son Fraser and Roger's daughter Amazon meet for the first time, before sending them off on an adventure to save the rare Amur leopard. Fans of the original titles will be surprised to learn that brothers Hal and Roger, who enjoyed a close relationship as teenagers, sent off as they were by their father to capture animals alive for zoos, have fallen out in the new books. He's fallen out with Roger who's a freelance conservationist — there's some sibling rivalry there.
