The Story of Kurri Kurri the Kookaburra


The story opens with the hatching of Kurri Kurri and his siblings on the East Coast of Australia.  Soon his parents are teaching him survival skills, to laugh and to fly.  Alas the day before it was Kurri Kurri’s turn to learn he was stolen from his nest by two men! Thus begins a long journey for Kurri Kurri and a young companion Karloo who are transported to Western Australia. (kookaburra’s were indeed introduced to WA in the early part of last century) Kept as pets in a backyard the young birds encounter surburban dangers and have to teach themselves skills normally taught by their parents. Eventually the birds manage to escape to the wild where they begin building a new life, thus beginning the life cycle anew. (Not one of the author’s best)
