Front Cover
Magabala Books, 2019 - Young Adult Fiction - 178 pages
Set in the 1940s when the pearling town of Broome is recovering from World War II, The Legend of the Phoenix Dragon is an epic tale that follows the heroics of Ubby, a street-wise Aboriginal girl and the leader of a rag-tag gang known as the 'Underdogs'. When Ubby recruits Sai Fong, a Chinese girl off the boat from Shanghai, they are thrown into a series of bizarre adventures full of myths and legends, and secrets never before exposed. McKenna's first volume of the Ubby's Underdogs trilogy leaves you gasping for air and hungry for more.
