    A visual, emotional tale

    Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite Death of a Wallaby is the second book in The Wobbly Wallaby series written by Mike Skillicorn. Wally, Jake, and Peg are three starving wallabies that are running for their lives while being pursued by hungry dingoes. When the leader of the pack falls to his death while giving chase, a surviving dingo seeks the ultimate revenge against the trio. Along the way, an unlikely friendship is forged between two predators, as the three wallabies are forced to use their every skill and talent in their escape from being a canine feast. In their search for food and shelter, the trio happens upon a massive mob of wallabies who live in much greener pastures. At first, the wallabies think that their prayers have been answered but soon realize that all is not what it seems in this neck of the woods. As an Indigenous Australian, I have read many books which I would consider to be utter nonsense about our animals and culture: Death of a Wallaby is definitely not one of them. A real diamond in the rough, this visual and emotional tale made me smile as it took me back to the days of John O’Grady and May Gibbs, both of whom also had the incredible knack of telling tales about the Australian bush and lifestyle in a way which every Aussie can most definitely identify with. I found myself hooked on every single word of this tale, even shedding many tears along the way. The talent of Mike Skillicorn is beyond reproach and I wish I had discovered this series one book earlier. I loved the realism of Death of a Wallaby and plan to seek out other titles, not only in this series but in any others with Mike Skillcorn’s talent in projecting a story which I feel will be enjoyed by readers for many years to come. I recommend Death of a Wallaby to readers young and old, regardless of background or ethnicity, should they want a taste of the Australian way through the eyes of our native animals.
