In One Careless Night, award-winning picture book creator Christina Booth tells the hauntingly beautiful story of Australia's last thylacine (Tasmanian tiger).

Where the mist swallows mountains and winds whisper through ancient trees, a mother and her pup run wild and free. They hunt, but they are also hunted. Carted away. Sold for bounty. And then, one careless night … The last thylacine is gone.

The beautiful but heartbreaking story of Australia's last thylacine (Tasmanian tiger), which died in captivity.

Book Features:

  • Graphically illustrated and hauntingly beautiful by award-winning picture book creator Christina Booth.
  • Australia's last thylacine died after the zookeeper neglected to put the animals in their shelters for the night. This is an important and timely book that deals with humanity’s lack of care for the environment and our betrayal of our native animals.
  • This is also a tale of hope – that we have changed our thinking and no longer treat animals in this way.
