A puggle is a baby echidna and that is what this story is about.
Catriona Hoy is an author that I have liked in the past. Her book Grandad Marches on Anzac Day is one of the books I use for Australian Book Traveller. Now I have another of her titles that I recommend.
It is called Puggle
The story centres on a baby echidna that is taken to a wildlife carer. As Puggle is cared for and grows at the animal shelter we also meet other sick animals nursed back to health. Over time each of the animals are well enough to leave. Some go back into the wild, others are found new homes.
Catriona does a great job of helping you connect with the animals without personifying them.
Andrew Plant’s paintings are realistically captured and vibrant in colour.
Puggle is available from Fishpond.
