Review by Wendy Haynes

Where’s Lucky is a story about a joey who was rescued when his mother was hit by a car and he was still in the pouch. It’s also about
Theresa and Tony and how together they nurture kangaroos back to health and finally say goodbye, sending them back to their natural habitat.

In the story we follow Lucky how at first, he snuggles into a wad of blankets, he is scared. But with lots of hugs from Theresa and Tony Lucky soon makes himself at home.

Lucky isn’t the only kangaroo who is cared for by Our Haven Wildlife Shelter and this story is a reminded of how vulnerable our wildlife is. And how we can make a difference to the native wildlife in our own community.

The story is for 4-7-year olds, and the author Jacqui Halpin has woven a fun story with a strong message. And educating children in being kind to animals is a big takeaway in this book. The colourful illustrations by Sandra Severgnini show the reader what it’s like in the rescue shelter along with Lucky’s curiosity where he is found in all sorts of places.
