Koalas eat gum leaves- everyone knows that. But a certain koala has different ideas and goes looking for some 'tastier tucker'. This he finds in the form of ice cream which he loves. However, he soon realises that you can have too much of a good thing...
Fantastic illustrations combine with simple text to create a wonderfully humorous tale. Having ice cream for every meal every day sounds wonderfully tempting, but Koala finds to his cost that this is not the case. The story offers the opportunity to discuss the dangers of over indulging, but really this is a tale to read and enjoy, laughing at the pictures- and perhaps eating ice cream!
