Tell Tails: An Anthology for Animals

Tell Tails: An Anthology for Animals by Nettie Lodge. PB 2022 Green Olive Press. RRP: $24.95. ISBN 978-0-6451048-3-7

Reviewed by Debra Williams

This non-fiction picture book spotlights 26 animals from around the world: the rare, the endangered, the quirky and the lesser-known species, from the Aardvark to the Zebra, and from Africa, South & South-East Africa, Australia, Central and South America, Europe. S.E. Asia, China, and Antarctica.

Written in verse and beautifully illustrated with original watercolours by Sydney artist and author Nettie Lodge, it is both educational and entertaining. It also highlights the need to respect, preserve and care for our environment and the creatures who share the planet with us. There are certainly some amazing animals that perhaps many people haven’t heard of.

This picture book would be suitable for older PB readers aged 7+ years. The books are available for purchase through www.green olive press.com, and selected bookstores. Green Olive Press is an independent book publisher based in Brighton, Victoria.
