AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Konrad and Sheila are a pair of Palm Cockatoos, desperate to raise a family. However, their plans are shattered when a huge bushfire rages out of control and burns their nesting tree to the ground. Whilst hiding out in the rainforest they meet a kindly cassowary named Pip. She proposes a magical solution to transform their lives. Will her extraordinary plan work in time for them to rear a chick before the rainy season starts? (Source: Back cover)
