Animal Stand by Alan W. Vickers

This is a first edition (1991) hardback collectable. In fact it's quite a rare title. It is an Australian bushland adventure with an environmental message. It also has a cleverly coded message for the reader to solve. What is Bossly's message? The animals include is Pira the platypus, Bossly the wombat, Karl the kingfishers and Scaly the frillneck lizard. The animals are battling a developer who wants to destroy their habitat. The full page illustrations are colourful and detailed, it is one of the most stunning Australian picture I have ever seen.
