1 y separately published work icon Grug and the Bushfire Ted Prior , Ted Prior (illustrator), Cammeray : Simon and Schuster Australia , 2020 19909796 2020 single work picture book children's

'It had not rained for a long time. The grass around Grug’s house was very dry and brown. Many leaves were falling from the trees. One very, very hot day Grug noticed a cloud of smoke in the distance. It seemed to be getting closer and closer to his home. Then Cara hurriedly slithered up and said ‘It’s a bushfire!’ Grug had never seen a bushfire. ‘We should be safe in your house’, said Cara, ‘because you live under the ground.’

'Grug is back from the bush to remind us of the importance of looking after each other, renewing the Australian wilderness and the caution we all need to take during the bushfire season. A very special book for early readers and parents alike this Christmas.' (Publication summary)
