Tippy and her baby Jellybean live in a beautiful eucalyptus forest. One day, they wake up and sniff the air. It's smokey, hot and windy.
Kangaroos and wallabies are bounding. Lizards and snakes are slithering. Wombats are heading to their burrows. The cockatoos take off in an enormous flock.
Tippy can't hop. Or run. Or fly. Instead she shelters her baby in the only way she can…
This is the uplifting story of a mother koala who saved her baby from a bushfire, and the dedicated vets who look after them until they are healed and ready to go home.
Proceeds from this book will raise money for the Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund.
Recommended for children 3 years +
