Fat Chance - the book

This book is such a treasure! I loved the quirky rhyme and the message of hope. The images are a beautiful complement to the wonderful prose. This is being kept for me to read to my future grandchildren.


Wow! This book is so cool! I learned about so many animals I never knew about before. I so want to see a spotted handfish!

This has become our favourite bedtime story and it has sparked a whole new conversation about what we can do as a family to save Tasmania's wildlife. Thank you!
