The School for Talking Pets by Kelli Anne Hawkins
Kelli Anne Hawkins is a new Australian author. She lists some of her favourite things are airports, velvet jackets, mangoes, the colour yellow, the satisfaction of crossing stuff off lists and staring at the ocean. Perfect author material if you ask us!
Her first book is just as fun and eclectic, with Rusty (our hero) taking on a mysterious island, a terrifyingly tattooed gardener, a pair of secret agents and of course a whole zoo-worthy collection of talking animals.
Doctor Dolittle meets Willy Wonka if you will!
The book offers a really fun adventure, great characters and beautiful descriptions of so many animals, it’s a delight to read.
