Killer Road is in Larsen Land in Australia. It is a road that leads to an old gold mine.
It is a road that twists round mountains, goes through deserts of sand and past great rocks. It is called Killer Road because it will kill cars.|
Tarak and Carlo come to stay with their Uncle Fred who lives in Larsen Land.
It is a country, Uncle Fred tells them, that is for big fellas - not plummy little rabbits.
And he is right. For when the cars come to race along Killer Road it is the big fella who wins.

From the details in this copy it would suggest that the library acquired the book in 1970. John)
