Giveaway: Kokey Kola Book and Puzzle Combo

Kokey Koala and the Bush Olympics by Trixie Whitmore was published in 1999 to coincide with the Sydney Olympics. 

A 20th anniversary edition has now been published by the author’s daughter and grandchildren.

Kokey Koala and the Bush Olympics is the story of a cute koala who, with determination and courage, participates in a series of Bush Olympics sports with the hope of winning an Olympic Gold Medal.

Just in time for the Tokyo Olympics and guaranteed to appeal to a new generation of children, the hardcover book’s exquisite hand-painted illustrations accurately detail fauna and flora that are special in each of Australia’s states and territories.

This enables an intricate ‘find and discover’ experience to captivate and educate readers as they follow Kokey Koala on his enduring quest to win ‘Gold’. Answers are provided at the back of the book to confirm the animals, insects and plants are correctly identified. 

Hundreds of Kokey’s friends can be found including a dunnart, platypus, phascogale, echidna, antechinus, cicada, pademelon and scores of colourful birds. 

To commemorate this exciting anniversary release, we have a delightful prize combo up for grabs.
