Just Published: Koala Hospital

Koala Hospital is the first in Suzi’s new four-book Wildlife Rescue series from Owlkids Books. Each book introduces a species of animal in danger somewhere in the world and invites readers inside a rescue center that helps them. Suzi’s photographs give readers a rare view of the animals and the high level of care they receive.


Koala Hospital features a koala rescue center in Australia. It shows why koalas are in danger, how they come to be in the sanctuary, and the process of healing and rehabilitating koalas for return to the wild. Koala Hospital also focuses on the people who work at the rescue center and how they aid the animals. In writing the book, Suzi spent weeks at the hospital photographing their patients and orphans.

The book includes a map showing the rescue center and the koala’s native habitat range, as well as an index, glossary, and author Q&A based on common questions from kids. An author’s note at the end introduces readers to small-scale ways that even they can help save koalas.
A portion of the royalties from sales of this book will be donated to the Koala Hospital. Find it here.
