Not cute.

Once there was a quokka.
Quokka was very cute.
But Quokka did not like being cute.
Not one bit …

This is the romping, stomping, chomping tale of one stubbornly adorable marsupial. But beneath its many costumes, Not Cute is a simple story about self-acceptance, listening to others, and not succumbing to your own delusions. It’s also a little bit about not being a #@*%.

Not Cute is published in Australia by Scholastic Australia (July 2020), and in Taiwan by Grimm Press.

Not Cute won the Honour Award at the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Picture Book of the Year Awards 2021, and was shortlisted for the Kids Own Australian Literature Awards 2022.
