A happy humpback yearns for warmer seas, for the Antarctic is a little too cold, now that autumn is here. She's not alone in this grand old tradition, It's a northward journey that the humpbacks take every year. An unforgettable book set in verse, this beautifully illustrated text tells the story of the one of our giants of the seas - the humpback whale. The happy humpback travels thousands of kilometres in its annual migration, visiting iconic Australian locations along the way.
Wrestling a saltwater crocodile, wrangling a deadly taipan and milking a funnel-web spider is all in a days work for Tim Faulkner! He could do all that and still find time to release a blue-tongue lizard, tag a wild platypus and save the Tasmanian devil from extinction! Tim is a Director and Head of Conservation at the Australian Reptile Park in Somersby, NSW, and The Devil Ark at Barrington Tops, NSW. Australian Geographic Conservationist of the Year (2015), Tim features in numerous TV shows, including his own Wild Life of Tim Faulkner, showcasing Australian wildlife to the world. Tim developed a love for the Australian bush and wildlife at a young age. He is proud to be sharing these stories with children, with the hope they will feel the same love for native creatures.
