From the beloved author of Wombat Warriors, Mister Cassowary and Smooch & Rose comes another thrilling adventure about Australia's endangered animals.
Samantha Wheeler fell in love with animals when, at the age of six,
she received a tortoise. She went on to study agriculture, work
with dairy farmers, and teach science, until writing her first
children's book, inspired by koalas, in 2011. Her books, which
include Smooch & Rose, Spud & Charli, Mister
Cassowary, andWombat Warriors, have been shortlisted for
the Queensland Literary Awards, the Readings Children's Book Prize,
The Wilderness Society's Environment Award for Children's
Literature, and the Royal Zoological Society of New South Wales
Whitley Awards. Samantha hopes her books will encourage everyone to
make a difference.
