Editorial Reviews

"A delightful, funny and moving story, touching on our special relationship with nature, told through the life of an endearing little kangaroo.” - Stephen Moss - Naturalist, Author, TV Producer“Paddy O’Melon is a wonderfully heartwarming story, stylishly written and with beautiful illustrations. I’m sure it will delight children and their parents while also introducing them to the fascinating creatures of the Australian rainforest.” - Neil Nightingale - former head of the BBC Natural History Unit and producer of Wild Down Under"A delightful romp through the rainforest with a wallaby . . . but also a story with an important conservation message that will inspire young people to love and protect this precious environment." - Chris Packham - Presenter and Conservationist‘Julia and Martin are old friends in wildlife, genuinely passionate about caring for the animals of tropical Queensland. Beautifully illustrated, Paddy O Melon and the other books in the series all carry a sense of wonder for the animals of Australia, and hopefully will help the new generation to treasure them, and want to learn how to care for them as Julia and Martin have.’ - Steve Backshall, naturalist, writer and television presenter for "Deadly 60"
