Wandi by Favel Parrett

Wandi by Favel Parrett
Seeing the world from the perspective of a dingo cub, Wandi explores the plight of dingos in Australia’s outback. The littlest of his siblings, Little One, is taught by his father to fear humans—the ‘tall animal that walks on two legs.’ He’s taught to run and hide if he ever encounters one. 
‘They don’t even eat us; they just kill us. They just kill.’ 
Not long after that, Little One is taken by an eagle away from his family. 
Little One, later named Wandi, survives and encounters what he’s been told to fear most. Luckily not all humans are alike, and Wandi encounters some of the good ones. The perspective in Wandi stays with the little dingo as he experiences a new world and a new life. As I read this story I felt what Wandi felt, I experienced what Wandi experienced. By the time I finished this story, I wanted to know more. I wanted to help. This story is full of emotion and love. I recommend this story to both children and adults alike. It’s a story everyone should read and all will love. Favel Parrett has outdone herself with this new classic children’s book.
