Tarkine the Tasmanian Tiger

‘Tarkine’ with his motto ‘Don’t expire…light your fire’ entertains with an underlying serious message about our fragile ecosystems and endangered species. While aimed at children his subtle messages also appeal to teenagers and adults alike.

So how do things become extinct? Asks Tarkine as he takes two children through the wonder-world of nature’s eco and bio-diversity systems in book one. In his illustrated drawings, David has Tarkine explain how some things have become out of balance and what we, as humans, can do, to correct this.

Tarkine’s story (which is the name of the wilderness area where the last tigers were seen in the wild) rhymes to the rhythm life, and we all should appreciate that, says David.
