Alpha Sierra Echo
A lovely children's storyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 March 2017
This is such a sweet story, I bought it for my niece who is 8, but had to have a sneaky read first. I absolutely loved it - it is a delightful and charming book. Beautifully written, a joy to read, and I shed a (happy) tear too. Great for us Brits, as it gives a clear and interesting angle on a little bit of koala life in Auz. I can't wait to read the next one. Sometimes children's stories can be a bit boring for parents to read, but not this one, it ticks along at a good pace and has some very discussable topics as Rose's life is not conventional or easy. Yes, 5 stars from me.
