“Smokey the Koala Bear from Gumeracha is as resourceful as Ned Kelly and as timeless as the Man From Snowy River which adds up to being as Australian as a blue-gum tree. And Australian Smokey certainly is along with Willie Wombat and Colin Cockatoo.
The story is their ride to return the evil bunyips to captivity makes exciting reading, enhanced by Melody Hampton’s detailed drawings. Don’t be misled into thinking this is a children’s tale. This is for everyone.
