Description

C.K. Thompson, Australia’s great writer of stories about our native birds and animals, invites you to share with him the hilarious adventures of the most lovable of them all…

WILLY WAGTAIL

Is there any Australian who does not know that friendly little chap, the black and white fantail? Go where you will, in crowded city park, in suburban backyard, or in the heart of the lonely bush, there he is, the companion of everyone, Willy Wagtail, the bush newspaper and busybody, minding everybody else’s business as well as his own.

In this light-hearted story of the great open spaces, Wily gets himself in and out of a lot of strife. He is ably assisted in his nuisance-making by a wide variety of bush birds and animals, as well as a quartet of small boys, all of whom have their own troubles without a wagtail adding to them.

Such doings are most deplorable, but they make excellent reading for young and old.
