Cover reveal: Little Puggle's Song

Little Puggle’s Song is an enchanting picture book about finding your place, chasing your dreams and overcoming fears.

Puggle wants to sing. But when he tries, no sound comes out. 'I wish I had my own sound, like all the other animals.'

But Puggle knows that echidnas cannot sing. Can Puggle find his voice in time to join the bush choir?

Australia’s stunning bush landscape and its most lovable animals come together in this delightful lyrical narrative. Brought to life through the brush strokes of renowned illustrator Helene Magisson, this beautifully visual story captures our country’s natural world in a delicate and wondrous way.

Little Puggle’s Song takes the reader on a heart-felt journey as Puggle struggles to be something that he can never be, but then discovers his ‘song’ in the most unexpected way. It is a celebration of those moments when you fulfill your dreams in ways never imagined.

The magical Little Puggle's Song is due out with New Frontier Publishing on September 1, but we couldn't wait to give you a glimpse of this gorgeous book. So, put your hands together for the great cover reveal...
