"Oh. Oh dear," a croaky voice said. "You've brought someone with you. You never said you were bringing guests today children. Oh, dear me. Look at the state of me. Look at the state of the tree!"

Bea and Bertie looked to the ground and saw a great round wombat fussing around the bottom of the tree. His wiry hair was all in a tussle and his lovely pink nose was smudged with dirt from pushing fallen gum nuts into a pile.

This is no ordinary gum tree. In fact, it's quite extraordinary. And better still, it's a secret for only kids to know.

Join Tom, Nelly, Bea and Bertie as they explore nature in a way no one has before, turning some of its challenges upside down. Welcome to the magical world of The Extraordinary, Unordinary Gum Tree.

The Extraordinary, Unordinary Gum Tree is a magical Australian story designed not just to entertain but to support farmers affected by drought and other environmental extremes. $1 from every book sale goes to Aussie Helpers, a charity providing money, goods and psychological support to farmers around Australia. The Extraordinary, Unordinary Gum Tree will be loved by readers aged 7-10, and younger children who enjoy being read to.

Review quote

Gemma, age 9: "It was very, very good. It was like The Faraway Tree, but the characters were Australian animals. My favourite was the possum. I read it in two days!"

John, 11: "It is really good. I liked the whole book, it is so awesome. I liked that there was an adventure every day."

Lauren, mum of three: "We have been reading this book as a family together, a couple of chapters at a time. My 9-year-old was quite upset that I wasn't reading it all at once! They have thoroughly enjoyed it."
