The Murrumbidgee Kid by Peter Yeldham

Teddy is a talented boy living in Gundagai whose mother wants him to be a star. When Teddy lands a role in a film, they move to Sydney to pursue his career.

This was an interesting story, but not very well written. There were a number of historical inaccuracies and I didn't enjoy the writing style. However, I did read to the end because I was interested in the characters.
