Koala Calamity – You Snooze You Lose

Koala Calamity Front Cover

Bet you didn’t know that I am the world’s leading expert on all things koala?  Well, not quite, but I know enough that the lovely people at Harper Collins wanted me to write part of their AWESOME ANIMALS series – awesome adventures with the wildest wildlife.

Welcome to the first of two crazy koala capers.

You might think that koalas are boring, just because all they do is eat eucalyptus leaves and sleep. For 19 hours a day. But you’d be wrong. They’re not boring. They’re just LAZY. They’re chilling, basically, kicking back and catching some rays in the treetops, and staying out of trouble.

At least, that’s what our cool koala buddies Dude and Bro, and little brother Squirt WERE doing, till one day they wake up to find they’ve missed their transfer from the koala sanctuary to the zoo across town, and will now have to find their own way there before Mum and Dad find out they’re missing.

Can they make it across town in their stolen zoo buggy or will the day end in one great big koala calamity?

You can purchase it here and other book shops and libraries are available.
