Quokka (Library of Awesome Animals)

Bearport Publishing, 2023

Quokkas live on a couple of small islands off of Australia. When they aren’t sleeping in a nice shady spot in the grass, they hop from spot to spot, looking for some good plants to eat. But everyone knows quokkas for their famous smiles. What else do you know about these awesome animals? Learn all about quokkas!

“Playful chapter titles and occasional interjections like “yikes” and wow!” create a lighthearted feel in these animal profiles, but there’s also plenty of useful, well-organized information. VERDICT: Well-rounded overviews with a light touch that might draw more reluctant readers.” –School Library Journal review of Library of Awesome Animals
