About this item

You see, high-up was safe since he liked a slow pace,
While the ground down below seemed a frightening place.
Too fast and too loud and too big and too strange.
Nope. Kevin preferred not to move or to change.


Kevin the koala loves every day to be the same, where it's snug and safe. But when change comes along, will Kevin embrace all the joys that come with trying something new?

An inspiring rhyming read aloud by bestselling Love Monster creator Rachel Bright and Frog on a Log? illustrator Jim Field that empowers young readers to face change with courage and delight.



About the Author

Rachel Bright

Rachel is a writer of words, drawer of pictures and champion of silver linings. She exhibits widely, writes tirelessly and frequently creates slightly unhinged characters. Her written work includes children's stories and poems, clever advertising copy and lots of other stuff besides. Her illustrative work is a smorgasboard of giant, hand-printed poems, mind-bogglingly detailed gouache illustrations and a cacophony of quirky prints and etchings. She explores the lovliness of words and the magic of pictures, revelling in a world of jam-eating miniature bears and other made-up animals. Her work aims to capture a free way of thinking - one which makes you feel anything is possible, a feeling all too easily lost with the end of childhood. When we're all grown-up, sometimes we just need a little nudge to remember it's been there all along. *Rachel has also been an air hostess, a garden designer and a lifeguard. She often runs a really long way and was once invited to the selection of the British ultra running team. She also once won a date with Man of the millennium and has been trying to live it down ever since.
