Koalas: The Real Story

By Mark Norman

We think that we know what koalas are like - but prepare to be surprised!

Koalas may look cute and cuddly, but lots of things about them are strange. They have two thumbs per hand, rarely need to drink water, and can survive on poisonous leaves. Here is the real story!

  • Part of the Oz Animals series, which introduces kids to the real life of some of their favourite animals.
  • Visually appealing, with lots of photographs and bite-size chunks of information. You've never seen koalas like this before!
  • Ideal for tourist markets, overseas gifts and school projects.
