Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - BOOKS -

Writ­ten and il­lus­trated by So­nia Strong Forty South Pub­lish­ing, hard­cover, $ 19.95 plus postage.

FROM a Tas­ma­nian au­thor/ il­lus­tra­tor comes this charm­ing story of a lit­tle na­tive hen ( or “turbo chook”) try­ing to find her own value and unique­ness.

Tazzie lives in a field near a house where there are lots of an­i­mals, each with their own tal­ents and uses. But Tazzie can’t seem to do any of the things th­ese other crea­tures can do. One night, how­ever, when a cranky old feral cat comes in search of din­ner, Tazzie dis­cov­ers an abil­ity to run like the wind. Told in rhyme and fea­tur­ing very ap­peal­ing il­lus­tra­tions, the story in­tro­duces some na­tive and do­mes­tic an­i­mal species to young read­ers and en­cour­ages them to ex­plore the things they can do well or that make them in­ter­est­ing lit­tle peo­ple.
