It's time to find your own way, Little Koala.

It is time for Little Koala to leave the protection of his mother. But many challenges and dangers lie ahead for him as he searches for his own home eucalypt and learns to be independent.

During his search he encounters other territorial koalas, wanders through a bushfire-ravaged landscape and endures a night of storms.

Koala is written by award-winning nonfiction picture book specialist Claire Saxby, and illustrated by the much-celebrated Julie Vivas, one of Australia’s premier illustrators.

  • Beautiful lyrical text by Claire Saxby coupled with stunning watercolour illustrations by much-loved illustrator Julie Vivas.
  • A fabulous addition to the award-winning Nature Storybook series, featuring the iconic Australian marsupial - the koala.
  • The content and combination of lyrical narrative with factual information will have strong appeal to educators and fits well into the curriculum. It will also appeal to animal lovers.
