Meek the possum and her three sisters live happily in a sprawling paperbark tree with a bunch of other animals, until one night a noisy, selfish fruit bat called Squabbles moves in. He's so obnoxious that none of the animals can sleep, so they stage an intervention.
Alexa Moses has written a hilarious book about sharing, with a cast of Aussie animals brought to life through Anil Tortop's illustrations.
Alexa Moses is a journalist (SMH), author and screen writer for children's television (hoopla doopla!, The Woodlies, Gasp the Goldfish and The Davincibles).
Anil Tortop is originally from Turkey and moved to Australia in 2011. Now based in Brisbane, she's an animator, character/concept designer and has illustrated 16 children's books.
