The nautical theme of In the Trails of the Aboriginals of Australia makes it an interesting voyage for young readers. The story is about Vasco, an underprivileged South Indian boy, who gets sponsored to study in a exclusive school in Australia. The story is the journey undertaken by Vasco. As he sails to Australia, Vasco faces a lot of hardships. He finds himself lost in the middle of the sea with just dolphins and fish as his guardians. When he almost loses faith and all hope of surviving, he is rescued by the ship Queen Fisher, which is his own ship. Will Vasco survive this trip and make it to Australia?

The book has some wonderful imagery that highlights the visual aspects of the story. The sea, the waves, and everything associated with the ocean give it a good vibe. Vasco's adventures are exciting: the monkey tree island, the quarreling monkeys, the discovery of pearls, the Ghost, Phantom, and many more are all the interesting things that Vasco meets on his journey. The story will take readers on an exciting trip through ocean and land. The story is breezy and readers will enjoy going through Vasco's fast paced adventurous trip. Children will surely get excited with all the amusing characters in the story and Vasco's experiences with them. The nautical theme really works well for this story and it is an adventurous journey for young readers.
