If Aesop had been born Australian, this is the story he would have written instead of The Boy Who Cried Wolf. As it is, Yvonne Morrison has done the job for him—telling the raucous tale of a cheeky cockatoo who decides that pulling a few pranks on his fellow birds will liven things up. Of course, the prank backfires when no one believes his cries for help, and a real dingo pins him down by his precious yellow crest. All ends well … and cocky learns his lesson. Or does he?
This is a hilarious re-telling of the age old Aesop Fable, brightly illustrated by the brilliant Heath McKenzie in bold colours. The characters are incredibly emotive, and Heath manages to capture the most hilarious expressions! An easy rhyming text which will make bedtime reading a pleasure. The companion title to the popular Town Possum, Outback Possum.
