Description


In this new series, based on real-life animal tales, discover that not all heroes wear capes – some have four legs, a wet nose, and a brave heart. Big or small, fall in love with animal friends who have lived truly wild lives.

Read about Onyx, the wolf pup, who was the runt of the litter. Although he was bullied by his siblings for being the smallest and scruffiest, Onyx knew that he could lead a pack better than anyone. As he grew up, he learned to resolve conflict, becoming a step-dad to another family of wolves who had lost their alpha. But it all changed when the toughest pup of the family partnered with a rival pack...

This heartwarming story has a fact section at the back, so you can learn more about koalas and how you can help them. Moving illustrations from Anneli Bray will make you want to hug the page.

Also debuting for the series is Koala, based on the bravery of koalas in the Australian bushfires. And there's even more heartwarming stories to come! Sterling the Moose and Talala the Leopard
