It’s nearly Australia Day (or Invasion Day or Survival Day, depending on your heredity and perspective – the Shelf offers respect and acknowledgement to the successes and struggles of the Indigenous mobs of this land) so that must mean it’s time to give away books!  Thanks to Book’d Out for hosting this happy hop which runs from the 24th to the 27th of January.

      • Sadly, I have not seen this myself, however the grandmother of one of my schoolfriends was a vet who specialised in native wildlife, so their backyard was basically a mini wildlife sanctuary full of somewhat neurotic Australian animals. I remember the wombat run had to have a fence that went up vertically, and then folded back inward at 90 degrees, because previous wombats had climbed the fence to freedom, but they couldn’t climb upside-down.

        Obviously, there had to be significant below ground fencing, too. I don’t remember how that part worked.


  1. Yeah I think I might be a koala, especially the opportunity to sleep all day – but I’d quite like to be a Big Red as well 🙂
    PS I did my best with the National Anthem but had to do a lot of la-la-ing, and come back in for the last line. Sorry. Must do better.

  2. I’d have to say 5 he winner of the marsupial cuteness pageant would have to be the Tasmanian Devil. I’m biased, being a tasmanian myself, but these little guys are kinda adorable. I just wouldn’t cuddle up to one.


  3. Someone needs to throw quokkas in the mix, so I will. I bet they could pull off an upset one year in the Marsupial Cuteness Pageant. Great question and great books in your giveaway. Thanks and Happy Australia Day!
