Kira's Animal Rescue [pb]
Kira: Girl of the Year 2021 #2
Written by Erin Teagan & illustrated by Millie Liu
In this second book of her series, ten-year-old Kira teams up with a graduate student at the animal sanctuary to track down the paradise parrot- a bird thought to be extinct- and prove that it still exists. While they’re trying to observe the elusive bird, bushfires threaten to wipe out the sanctuary and the parrot’s habitat. There’s no choice but to evacuate all the animals, which is a huge task even without trying to track down a missing baby wallaby. As the bushfires rage out of control, Kira makes a disturbing discovery. Should she keep her mouth shut- or tell a painful truth?
