Age range 6+ 'Who drew on these tree trunks?' Charlie asked Max. 'They'll be in big trouble if Mum sees that!' Take a walk through the Australian bush with Charlie, Layla, Cooper and Max. As the children discover a world full of natural wonders, brimming with native flora and fauna, little Charlie's mind is focussed on one thing...

Who, or what, has made those marks on the bark of the Scribbly Gum trees?

'What is a Scribbly Gum? How do the scribbles get there? This stylishly illustrated picture book in rhyme surprised me with the answer...

This is a delightful adventure that stimulates awareness about the beauty to be found in Australia's natural surroundings. It encourages children to explore the outdoors and become environmentally friendly while learning about the role and contribution of each living thing in the world around them...

Award-winning writer Dannika Patterson teaches sustainability and awareness of the environment to young children.' - Kids' Book Review 'Scribbly Gum Secrets is one of those extra dimension books, where the reader feels like they have been invited into a secret intriguing world. There are hidden gems waiting to be discovered beyond the initial glance of the pages. This discovery element is sure to enchant the beginning reader up to middle primary ages, as well as being a great resource for environmental studies.' - Reading Time 'This is gentle, beautiful and so utterly synced to not only our current situation but for all future excursions into the 'wild'. Text and illustrations combine perfectly to evoke the peaceful and soothing joys to be had in spending simple wholesome family time together. Highly recommended for families - children from as young as three will enjoy this very much.' - Sue Warren, Just So Stories 'The illustrations, though lacking in sophistication, are evocative and deceptively meaningful.' - ReadPlus
