FOR TOO LONG KOALAS HAVE BEEN CALLED BEARS For too long koalas have been called bears.

But this koala is out to prove to the world that he is BARE!

And that never, ever, ever can a koala be called a bear ...

From the internationally renowned author of the bestselling Diary of a Wombat comes a hilariously funny picture book that Jackie French has created with talented new illustrator Matt Shanks.

About the Illustrator

Matt Shanks's early fascination for the combination of words and pictures saw him complete a Bachelor of Design at the University of Sydney in 2003. It took him 10 years though, while working as a Creative Director at some of Melbourne's best design agencies, to realise that this 'watercolour hobby' of his needed to be shared with more than just his wife and cat. Matt has now illustrated several picture books and lives in Melbourne.
Industry Reviews
'The rhyming text appears so deceptively simple and effortless that it reads like an absolute treat. This book is beautifully illustrated by upcoming illustrator Matt Shanks, who creates gorgeous watercolour paintings to accompany the whimsical text. - 100percentrock.com

'In Koala Bare, Jackie French and Matt Shanks have created a uniquely Australian story for young children.' - Kids' Book Review

'A wonderfully funny look at several important things: the difference between the words bare and bear, the fact that the koala is not a bear and as the reader reads on they will learn some of the attributes of bears. But the main focus is the fun, the wit of French's rhyming stanzas, the prediction of the rhyming word at the end of each phrase, the use of words like posterior, the attempts by the koala to get readers to see him as he is.' - ReadPlus
