Laugh again, Kinta!

"Laugh again, Kinta!" is a charming children's picture book, written and illustrated by Heather Joy Leane.

The simple story follows a lost and bewildered Kinta, a young kookaburra, after his forest home is ravaged by fire. Kinta is saved by wildlife carers, and finally relocated to the wild. How he regains his sense of self, and settles to a bright future makes a heartwarming story. The pictures, which include a built-in game, are a perfect fit for the words. On the final page is information about kookaburras.

"Laugh again, Kinta!" is published by Sunbeam Books, at
