I was really pleased to get more good reviews. Ranger in Danger was part of the  Green Books Campaign 2010!

Launched in 2009 by Eco-Libris, this campaign aims to promote “green” books by reviewing 200 books printed on recycled paper or FSC-certified paper. Our goal is to use the power of the internet and social media to promote “green” book…s and increase the awareness of both readers and publishers to the way books can be printed printed in an eco-friendly manner. On November 10, 2010 200 bloggers took a stand to support “green books”.

Five of the Ranger in Danger books were selected.

Taronga Zoo launch

The Ranger in Danger series had a launch at the Taronga Zoo.
It was fantastic.
We met a great group of super bright, talented school children from Middle Harbour,
who all knew an amazing amount about animals.
We had a close encounter with an iguana and a python.Check out how long the python is. Sean fancies one for a necklace.
A special treat for me was to meet a couple of the Dhimmuru rangers from Arnhem Land in
the Northern Territory. Ranger in Danger: Rapscallion’s Revenge is set there and the Dhimmuru
rangers feature in it. I was sad when they told me that I wouldn’t be able to learn the yadaki
or didge if I visit as only males can play it. But I can have beating sticks, which isn’t quite
the same, but probably much easier.
A huge thanks to everyone involved, especially the Taronga Foundation and the Taronga zoo.
After the launch I wandered around the zoo with my friend Fiona, and we had a fabulous time.
She liked the rabbits that lived in mini castles and I think her rabbit Rex is going to have a new
fancy hutch. I liked the gorillas chilling in hammocks. When we got tired we caught a gondola
that sped over the top of the zoo and we had a great view of the elephants, including a cute little one.
If you get the chance, go to the Taronga Zoo.

Ranger in Danger Book Launch at Werribee Open Range Zoo

The zoo launch  at Werribee free-range zoo was super fun! We had a beautiful day, and had the actual launch in a sort of huge hut, which looked over paddocks of free roaming rhinos, zebras and giraffes.

I’ve never had the opportunity before to be so close to wild animals. I had a very close encounter with a giraffe, but Ranger Sean, my co-author, had an even closer encounter. The giraffe seemed to like the taste of his hair!

The rhinos were huge and apparently very intelligent. You would definitely want to keep on their good side!

Whenever you get the chance to visit a zoo, take it!
