First appearing in 1933, Blinky Bill has become a classic character in Australian children's literature, and the Blinky Bill books have never gone out of print. Blinky has escaped from the zoo, along with his mother and his new friend Splodge the Kangaroo. Blinky and his mother return to their old tree home, only to find that an orphan koala named Nutsy has been eating their leaves! Mrs. Koala is delighted to have a little girl koala around, and Blinky has a companion for more fun and adventures. This is the third book featuring the naughty koala.
