The Monster Who Ate Australia 

 The Monster Who Ate Australia

by Michael Salmon


Meet Burra the boggabri. Sensitive and shy, he lives in a secret cave at the back of Uluru. Noisy tourists disturb his peaceful life, driving him out onto the road in search of a new home. During his travels around the countryside, Burra meets – and eats! – many famous Australian icons, creating havoc wherever he goes.

The Monster Who Ate Australia has been entertaining young Australian readers, helping teachers with their geography classes and aiding school projects for three decades, and has recently inspired a musical. Now it’s back, bigger and bolder than ever!
