‘Koala Bare’ by Jackie French Illustrated by Matt Shanks

Genre: Picture Book


Jackie French. She is synonymous with my childhood bedtime stories (specifically Diary of a Wombat) and she’s written dozens and dozens since and her latest ‘Koala Bare’ continues her Aussie theme Jackie is legendary for.



A grumpy koala. Need I say more? What I will say is that can never sound more like a tourist by saying ‘koala bear’. The character reminds me of me when I was little, my mother likes to say, as the youngest of 5, I ‘ruled the house with an iron fist’ and so does this fella.

Super cute, you can’t go wrong (:
