Tom and Nelly have a secret - a magical one, hidden deep in the bush land on their farm. When new neighbors arrive, Tom and Nelly can't wait to share the secret that until now has been theirs alone.
Join Tom, Nelly, Bea and Bertie as they explore nature in a way no one has before, turning some of its challenges upside down. Meet the worrisome wombat Mr O'Dear, cheeky Cackles the kookaburra and mischievous Sugar the glider among other lovable characters who help the kids on their journey.
Reminiscent of Enid Blyton's The Faraway Tree, The Extraordinary, Unordinary Gum Tree is a modern, magical Australian story designed not just to entertain but to support farmers affected by drought and other environmental extremes. $1 from every book sale will go to Aussie Helpers, a charity providing money, goods and psychological support to farmers around Australia. The Extraordinary, Unordinary Gum Tree will be loved by readers aged 7-10, and younger children who enjoy being read to.
