Summary This stunning children's picture book tells the true story of Sparky, an amazing dog who survived the devastation of the Australian bushfires 2019-20. The Wild family adopted Sparky at Christmas time, and when they were forced to evacuate just a few days later, Sparky was lost in the Tintaldra bushland. When the Wild family return to find their home destroyed by the fire, their spirits are buoyed when their scrappy puppy emerges from the smoky surroundings. This meaningful book has been written and illustrated to help children to understand and discuss traumatic events such as bushfires and other natural disasters. It comes with support from child psychologists who recognise the comfort and encouragement it will provide for kids, with one quarter of the print run being donated to children and their families in the Upper Murray region.
