Synopsis

A Nature Storybook about the irresistible koala, from two award-winning picture-book makers.



It is time for Little Koala to leave the protection of his mother. But many challenges and dangers lie ahead as he searches for a eucalyptus tree of his own and learns to be independent. The main text is accompanied by informative captions about the life cycle, behaviour and diet of these fascinating creatures - including the fact that they sleep up to 18 hours a day! Written by award-winning nonfiction picture book specialist Claire Saxby, and stunningly illustrated by the much celebrated Julie Vivas, one of Australia's premier illustrators.
