The Comet Box by Adrian Stirling

‘If  I told you the truth, you’d run away as well,’ she said so quietly that  I could barely hear it. ‘Go to bed, Andrew, and forget about  everything.’

Adrian Stirling is a Geelong author who taught at Oberon High. This is his second
book.

The year is 1986 and Halley’s Comet is about to return for its once every seventy-six
year visit to our fragile blue planet. The planet is not the only fragile
entity. Several individuals and families of the fictitious Melbourne suburb of
Merton, located on the city’s rapidly growing urban fringe, share this characteristic.
The ‘Comet Box’ of the title alludes to Halley’s return, a classroom metaphor
for a wishing well. “Careful what you wish for…..’

author, Adrian Stirling, has been the feature author on the Children’s
