Anything's possible at the School for Talking Pets ...


When Rusty Mulligan and his pet blue-tongued lizard win a week on a secret island, at Miss Alice Einstein's School for Talking Pets, the shy twelve-year-old is thrilled. His best friend will learn to talk!

But once on the island, things don't go to plan ... And Rusty must work with the other competition winners, a terrifyingly tattooed gardener, and a multitude of clever animals to save the school from the clutches of the two secret agents who have come to shut it down - by any means necessary ...

About the Author

Kelli Anne Hawkins has worked as a journalist, graphic designer, administration assistant and mystery shopper - she's even had a job where she just had to remove staples! But all along, her love of books and libraries and reading and daydreaming should have told her she was meant to write books. Some of her favourite things are airports, velvet jackets, mangoes, the colour yellow, the satisfaction of crossing stuff off lists and staring at the ocean. She lives in Newcastle, NSW, with her two children, who are now taller than she is and far better at maths.
