Pirate - The barking Kookaburra
Publisher: Big Happy Family Audio
Date: January 2011
Duration: 2 hours 20 minutes
What do three dogs and a cat have to say when a baby kookaburra is found in their yard? Buddha, the cat, starts by asking, 'What the blooming tail is it, mate?' Hoover, one of the dogs, thought it looked like lunch. Ajax thought it was a toy. But Stelze, an aging Doberman, informed everyone it was a baby, and she planned to protect it in every way possible. A very Australian audio book complete with sounds of the bush, big Australian accents (but easily understandable), and characters who say 'bloody'. Sections of the story are punctuated leisurely by pleasant and cheery bush-folk music.
