Critical Acclaim for The Traveler's Telescope
"...danger, dilemmas and plenty of action. Brownlee keeps the story moving right to the last page."
- Magpies Magazine
"The sequel to The Magic Carpet is just as lively, imaginative and action-packed as the first novel in the series. Jodie Brownlee has crafted a delightful combination of mystery, adventure and fantasy that will appeal to most young readers. Winged camels, a temperamental magic carpet, a strangler turban, and a cast of colourful (literally) characters make this a charming read."
- NSW Association for gifted and talented children
"It is a fabulous children's book and one that adults will enjoy reading with their kids. The whole Ruby concept is witty, bright, magical, clever and very addictive."
"This fun and adventurous book will have you laughing, shaking and trying to perform magic yourself. It really shows that if you believe in yourself and never give up that you can do almost anything. You just have to keep trying. Jodie Brownlee has done an amazing job with this book. It is extremely descriptive. You would nearly believe that you were in the book yourself. It has a great plot line, fabulous scenery, in fact the whole book is absolutely magnificent. This book would most likely be enjoyed by people between the ages of 9 and 12 but almost anyone who would pick it up would love it. I give it 9.5/10. I assure you if you read it you will wish it never ends."
Tara, Age 11
"Read them all!"

What Young Readers Are Saying
"I love reading the Ruby series. It is so exciting and dramatic! I read The Travellers Telescope all day today and couldn't stop until I finished. Everything about the book was great!"
Ruby, age 10
"I have read both Ruby books. I think they are brilliant! Are you going to make a third?"
'I'm looking forward to your next book. I hope it comes out soon. Have I mentioned I absolutely love your books? If I absolutely had to rate them I would give both 10/10.
From your number one fans.'
Saskia and Eva
"They are both outstanding, fantastic, wonderful, adventurous, and the best books I've ever read. 10/10. V. V. good! I recommended them to all friends."
"I absolutely loved The Traveler's Telescope. I love all the characters especially Ruby, Jaffa and Avalon. My favourite part was when they went to Babylon on Babaganoosh to steal some black water from the potion master's storeroom to prove Granny McQuirky was innocent."
