Here are Dorothy Wall's classic tales of the cheeky, adventurous koala and his bush friends, brought to life in more than seven hours of enchanted storytelling! Ideal for any child aged 4 to 12.
With enthusiastic pleasure, this headstrong and mischievous little koala sets out on a series of bold adventures testing not only his mother's patience, but also that of all the bush creatures he encounters. His shenanigans at Miss Pym's shop and Farmer Smifkins's veggie patch show him to be a very naughty koala indeed! Blinky Bill is the first book featuring the naughty koala.
Blinky has escaped from the zoo, along with his mother and his new friend Splodge the Kangaroo. Blinky and his mother return to their old tree home, only to find that an orphan koala named Nutsy has been eating their leaves! Mrs. Koala is delighted to have a little girl koala around, and Blinky has a companion for more fun and adventures. This is the third book featuring the naughty koala.
First appearing in 1933, Blinky Bill has become a classic character in Australian children's literature, and the Blinky Bill books have never gone out of print. Blinky finds out that his mother plans to send him to Mrs. Magpie's school, hoping he'll return a little less mischievous. Blinky decides he'd rather run away. While away he meets a colorful collection of animals, gets a job at a bush bazaar before things get out of hand, and a trip to Mr. Smifkin's farm turns to disaster.
