The baby koala waits until she is six months old before she emerges from her mother's pouch. The baby isn't that curious about the outside world at first, but she's content to go along for the ride in Mother's pouch. Later she'll ride piggyback as they search the trees for the most tender eucalyptus leaves. But one day soon the youngster will have to face one of the greatest dangers in a koala's life - fire.
"Enticing photographs of a baby koala as it grows up are well matched here with a clear, accessible text full of interesting facts about koala life. . . Pictures of soft, teddy-bear-like koalas have built in appeal, of course, but these of mother and clinging baby are particularly fetching." — Notes from the Windowsill
