The koala is the first animal many of us name when asked about Australian wildlife, and is a symbol of Australia’s national identity. With their sleepy, eucalyptus-dazed behaviour, and appealing piggy-backing parenting style, there are few things that bring the beauty of the Australian bush to mind more beautifully than the memory of spotting a sleepy daytime koala in the crook of a gumtree. 

"Koala" by Thames & Hudson is a contemporary celebration of Australia's favourite marsupial, featuring over 50 illustrated interpretations of this adored creature. A small and compact gift book (perfect for carry-on!), 'Koala' is the perfect gift for animal lovers, illustrators and anyone who loves a coffee table book. Koala also makes a perfect personal souvenir of travels in Australia.

With the support of the Australian Koala Foundation, this book highlights not just the appealing look and habits of the Koala, but the plight of a creature so badly affected by the impact of environmental and climate changes to its native habitat.
