Acts give birth to flood story
AUSTRALIAN predators are portrayed as compassionate individuals in the children's book Friends of the Flood.
An owl is shown keeping a baby possum warm, and a goanna cuddles a lorikeet.
Author "Nana" Ryll Paul, of Forest Lake, was inspired to write the book after seeing a photo of a snake carrying a frog on its back in floodwaters last year.
"I just thought, how wonderful and uplifting it was," Ms Paul said.
"This co-operation between two creatures who would not normally help one another was also shown by humans."
