Koalas eat gum leaves.

Koalas eat gum leaves. Everyone knows that.

Authored by my beautiful and incredibly talented better half, Laura Bunting, my second picture book – our first together – tells the tale of one little koala, who has had quite enough of his eucalyptus diet. And so he goes on the lookout for some tastier tucker…

The story is a simple cautionary tale, highlighting the importance of moderation, balance, and paying attention to the Laws of the Universe*.

Laura and I had tonnes of fun creating Koalas eat gum leaves, and we hope it brings heaps of fun to you and yours.

*See Laws of the Universe, Volume 4, Section 48, Chapter 554, Clause 8.2: ‘Koalas don’t eat ice-cream’.
