Jeremy is one of my favourite CBCA shortlisted books this year.
It's nominated for the Eve Pownall Information Book award - but this is non-fiction at its lightest.
Based on a true story, Jeremy is a baby kookaburra that has fallen out of his nest.
In the style of Sebastian Lives in a Hat, Jeremy is raised lovingly by humans in their home. He becomes a part of the family as we casually learn about what he eats, watch him as he grows and learns to fly.
Jeremy is beautifully & affectionately illustrated by Danny Snell. Each page is designed simply and cleanly, drawing the eye to Jeremy each time.
The end papers are lined with kookaburra facts - for instance, did you know that the kookaburra laugh is not actually laughing at us silly humans, but marking his territory instead?!
