Quite a Clever Quokka
by Merv Lamington, illustrated by Allison Langton
Meet Leonardo, an arty young quokka on Rottnest Island.
Drawn by the bright city lights across the sea, Leo comes up with a dastardly plan to escape a life of endless selfies with tourists. He runs away to become a painter! But making it in the big smoke isn’t as easy as he thought and soon Leo starts to wonder – is he such a clever quokka after all?
Based on a true story, Quite a Clever Quokka is for anyone who stays true to their dreams when the going gets tough.
