Robyn Locket grew up on a dairy farm in the Baw Baw Region of Victoria, where her father worked on sawmills in the surrounding bush.
When in the nineties, the Leadbeaters Possums were used in a campaign against logging in the Central Highlands, she decided to find out more about these fascinating little creatures. Over the years a story evolved and, with the assistance of her husband, she took numerous photos that resulted in the illustrations in this book. Having grown up in the same area and working in the bush since he was fifteen he, knew the bush like the back of his hand.
Recently, a new campaign to cease logging has begun, again using the Leadbeaters Possums. It is hoped that by reading this book you will get a better understanding of our Leadbeaters Possums and how they live, as well as the actual effect of logging on their livelihood.
