Australian adventure for kids
If you want to introduce your children to the Australian bush, with a whole gang of kookaburras, possums, magpies, owls and many other birds and animals, then this book is for you. Judith Price captures the magic of the forest, and the majesty of the giant tingle tree with masterful illustrations and a story of great derring do. In The Rescue, the younger brother of the three kookaburras, Burra, sacrifices what looks like the winning basket in the annual mushroom hunt contest to save a young possum from the roaring river. The feast at the end is absolutely wonderful.
