When Lily’s Mum tells her that she wishes she could build a bridge between their two homes, Lily and her dog, Woof, swap stick hunts for bridge hunts and set off in search of a bridge to Australia.
This is a charming and whimsical tale of a little girl, her furry best friend and a big imagination. Kiwis and Koalas is a beautifully illustrated story that will take you on a magical journey around Australia and New Zealand, stopping to sightsee along the way.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
A debut author, Sarah wrote Kiwis and Koalas out of a need to bring Australia and New Zealand together in a story, filling a huge gap on our shelves for the hundreds of thousands of families split between our two countries. It was also an incredible opportunity to subtly normalise differences, because every child deserves to see themselves in a picture book.
