Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late Steve Irwin (AKA The Crocodile Hunter), has followed in her father’s footsteps with her desire to help endangered wildlife. She’s been a busy young lady – staring in a TV show, designing her own fashion wear, traveling the world, and now she’s the heroine of her own adventure book series. Geared toward the younger age set, these easy chapter books teach kids important wildlife facts through interesting circumstances that involve Bindi, her family, and an array of unique animals.
In Trouble at the Zoo, Bindi is celebrating her 11th birthday with all the visitors at the Australia Zoo. Featuring an underwater theme, guests sporting all kinds of sea animal costumes are treated to a day of fun and festivities. All seems to be going well until a lizard obsessed boy named Zac tries to steal an Eastern Water Dragon. Will he get away with the heist of this rare species? Or will Bindi and her little brother Robert foil the boy’s scheme?
This new series is great for your younger readers who love animals. It has cute storylines, loveable characters, and fascinating creatures. Good for Bindi for branching out to writing and infusing children with her passion for endangered animals.
There will be several installments to this series, Book two is: Rescue!
