Travelling Tasmanian Tigers
Forty South Publishing
Hardcover, 32 Pages
Margie Kirk's fantastic artwork and beautiful words combine to take readers on a tour of 14 Tasmanian towns where thylacines make friends with the native wildlife - from wombats in Waratah, echidnas in Eddystone, wedge-tails over Wineglass Bay to possums in Port Arthur, quolls in Queenstown and swans in Strahan.
"We see so many children who can instantly identify a tiger, a lion or even a Tyrannosaurus rex, but do not know what a bettong, quoll or bandicoot are. It is crucial that we introduce children to these animals at a young age so they can begin to identify, and develop a passion for, the animals living in their own backyards." - Greg Irons, Director, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary
