An exciting new addition to the narrative non-fiction series Nature Storybooks, about a Python.

It’s morning in the bush. Python stirs and slithers out from her shelter. She warms her head and smells the air with her forked tongue. Python is a beautiful snake, but also dangerous – and she is looking for a meal.


Mark Jackson’s luscious, landscape-heavy illustrations showcase this amazing animal and its best, not to mention the gorgeous Australian bush. Vital for schools and libraries – and for nature-lovers.

Kids' Book Review

The illustrations are vibrant, emotive and with just the right amount of hidden details to spark wonderful discussions. Python is sure to be a favourite with children who love learning about animals, but also reads beautifully as a story to share during story times. A real delight!

Book Crowd

The non fiction/fiction combination in this series is truly inspired and great in a classroom context.
