About His Books
The Bunyip Tree is a massive and mysterious tree full of rooms, staircases and slides with some windows and a big front door.
The Bunyip Tree world is set in a small town, somewhere in Australia, beside a river, next to a forest and near the desert. In the centre is a billabong. On an island in the billabong is the Bunyip Tree where the bunyips live. In the town lives a community of Australian animals who play, and explore in their unique environment.
The first five stories focus on individual animals from the Bunyip Tree town and their friendship and adventures. These rhyming books are perfect for children ages 3 – 8, and the engaging illustrative style and irresistible rhyme will deliver joy for all imaginations.
