A Footy Tail - Hardback

A Footy Tail - Hardback - by Alex Johnston, illustrated by Gregg Dreise

Inspired by the South Sydney Rabbitohs, written by NRL star Alex Johnston and illustrated by celebrated First Nations artist Gregg Dreise, this rhyming picture book about an underdog team of bunnies who are up against the stronger teams of animals is a wonderful story of unity, togetherness, resilience and teamwork.

A fluffle of Bunnies play at the park.
They sprint and they tackle from dawn until dark,
They always train hard, but it's never enough . . .
the other teams are just bigger and stronger. It's tough!

Join AJ and his teammates, Cody and Latrell, and the Bunnies on their triumphant footy journey from being the competition underdogs to unlikely winners, with a little help from some friends - especially a wise and confident Crow!

They’ll love it!

About the Author

Marcia Vaughan was born in the USA but lived in New Zealand's Cook Islands for a year before coming to Australia, where she worked as a school librarian. It was here that she began writing and being published. She wrote more than 85 well reviewed books, including fun activity and recipe books, and many in reader series such as Jellybean Readers, Celebrate Reading, Voyager and Literacy Links. She also wrote the Deadly and Dangerous Australian nature series for children, and her work Wombat Stew (1985) was been widely translated, with the characters used in children's road safety posters in New South Wales. Vaughan also wrote the Sticky Beak mystery series of 26 volumes. Many of the reviews have commented on the suitablility of her works to be read aloud and she has explained this in interviews by stating that she reads a story onto a cassette tape.
