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.
