FireWorks by Oliver Smuhar

4 Stars


A fun and educational read!


Smuhar pens a fun children's story in FireWorks. One thing I do want to mention is that, "Majority of FireWorks' net proceeds will be donated to a variety of charities and non-government organizations across Australia through the FireWorks' Fund (FWF)." Anyway, I felt that was important to mention. I have read work from this author before, and I really enjoyed it. The characters, a group of animal friends led by Illuka band together to survive the bushfires. It's an educational and also fun read, that takes on a serious note, because though these animals are fictional, the events are not. "Alinta had arrived. Alinta! ... You could feel the heat the moment the red and orange sparked behind the gums. You could smell the vapours of the leaves sizzle ..." When it comes to survival, family can mean anything, and welcomes anyone. I look forward to reading many more stories by this author. This book is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
