The Boobook's Nook
Forty South Publishing
Sonia’s first book, Tazzie the Turbo Chook finds her feet, was a runaway success with young readers and their parents. In her second book,The Boobook’s Nook, children aged 2-8 are introduced to some of Australia's nocturnal creatures (such as wombats, quolls, frogmouths, bats and bettongs) and will see why there really is no need to be afraid of the dark.
"Boobook, boobook," they call their name
when quolls and devils prowl,
for after dark's the time to hear
a greeting from an owl.
Although it seems the night is when
there's cause to be afraid,
for owls it's when they feel most safe;
their night is like your day.
