Sale price Price $29.00 AUD Regular price

Sonia Strong moved to Tasmania in 2005 and lives in the forested hills of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel. She has a deep affection for windswept and interesting people and places and is happiest when creating. Sonia has published several children’s books through Forty South.

Sonia’s first book, Tazzie the Turbo Chook finds her feet, was a runaway success with young readers and their parents. In her second book,The Boobook’s Nook, children aged 2-8 are introduced to some of Australia's nocturnal creatures (such as wombats, quolls, frogmouths, bats and bettongs) and will see why there really is no need to be afraid of the dark.

"Boobook, boobook," they call their name
when quolls and devils prowl,
for after dark's the time to hear a greeting from an owl.

Although it seems the night is when
there's cause to be afraid,
or owls it's when they feel most safe;
their night is like your day.
