Kookaburras love to laugh.

Life’s not easy for the most serious kooka in the borough.

Authored by my tremendously accomplished better half – Laura BuntingKookaburras Love to Laugh is a story about stereotypes, differences, fitting in, and flatulence. Our second picture book together tells the tale of one particularly serious kookaburra, who doesn’t care much for the status quo.

This guy has always been different. He doesn’t like to koo, and he isn’t keen to kaa… life’s no breeze for the most serious bird on the branch. So he takes off to find a more fitting flock, but soon discovers that all flocks have their flaws.

Kookaburras love to laugh is published in Australia by Scholastic Australia, and throughout Asia by Scholastic Asia.
