Tuart Dwellers



Enquire about this product

Jan Ramage, illustrated by Ellen Hickman

From the break of dawn to nightfall, the tuart is not as it appears.  Leaves and bark, trunk and branches - all are places of pretence, traps and trickery.

Find out what surprise a "moon crater" might hide and why a bullseye borer drills holes; how a crab spider goes shopping and a jewel beetle becomes a seedpod; why a dragon wears a beard and how a gecko talks. And meet the "mad hatterpiller", who does a very clever hat trick.

'Tuart Dwellers' celebrates the diversity, colour and ingenuity of the natural world.
