About the Authors . . .
Laura is a children’s book author and Philip is an author and illustrator. Working together, Laura’s characters are brought to life through Philip’s incredible illustrations, and can be found in Koalas Eat Gum Leaves, Kookaburras Love to Laugh, Another Book About Bears and Liarbird. When not making books together, Laura and Philip are busy raising three children in sunny Queensland. They are big believers that reading to your kids is hands-down one of the best things you can do with them in their early years (and beyond).
Wombat won’t leave his Safety Zone. Nope. No way. Not even for his favourite treat... sweet, sweet bush berries.
But Roo believes she can do anything if she puts her mind to it. Especially tracking down some delicious berries for dinner. (Even if those berries do happen to be growing at the very top of a massive mountain.)
In the paw-sizzling heat of summer, Wombat and Roo need to cool their toasted toes. They find themselves on a beautiful beach with more than enough ocean for everyone. But there is one very little problem ... Quokka thinks he owns the beach. And he is not in the mood for sharing.
Roo has woken up with three new babies – weird babies – in her pouch. But where did they come from? And can Wombat become the funcle (fun uncle) he thinks he will be? Follow Quokka, Wombat and Roo on a quirky quest to return three very lost chicks to their parents.
