I am the last of my kind. This I know. Once, we roamed the land. We owned the land. We called it Home. But strange creatures came to take it from us...My story matters. I am the last living female Tasmanian Tiger. Stripes in the Forest by award-winning author, Aleesah Darlison, is the story of an iconic species lost. Told from the perspective of the last wild, female thylacine, it provides readers with an insight into the rare beauty and uniqueness of these amazing animals and explains their fight for survival and provides important lessons for future generations. An emotive and moving story, children will connect with the solitary, stoic and courageous female thylacine who does all she can to protect her young - just as a human mother would do. The story takes readers to a place in the past, but also offers a twist that projects them into the future and offers a glimmer of hope for survival of a creature some believe may still exist. Parents and their children will enjoy the rich, vivid and detailed illustrations of the Tasmanian forests and landscapes and the magnificent thylacine as depicted by illustrator and artist, Shane McGrath. Stripes in the Forest, will generate rich discussion and raise important questions for young minds. This powerful and poignant story offers hope for threatened species and shows how, together, we can make a difference.
