A simple story featuring a family of Tasmanian devils looking for their little sister who disappeared during a game of hide-and-seek. They ask a kookaburra bird for help, who in turn organizes a proper search party made of several other animals: an echidna, a wallaby, a platypus and a wombat. They all look for Splasher in places where they would normally find their favourite food. In this way, children are introduced to habitats and feeding habits of these animals. Naturally, there is a happy en ...more

Didn't really like this one. I look a bit cheap with the generic illustrations on one side and a text page on the other. The story in itself was not entirely bad but still a bit below average. Not really worth it! Sorry...

Splasher, a Tasmanian devil, is missing. After playing hide and seek, his siblings can't find him. All the other Australian native animals go looking for him. They all go looking in their own habitats, where they would find their own food, which is not a big help in finding Splasher. Eventually he is found.

We enjoyed the story and learned a bit about native animals in Australia which was fun and interesting. I did explain to my grandson that the illustrations were made so the animals looked cut

Cute pictures can not save a book.

And it does have cute pictures, and you would think it would have a cool story to go along with it.

Splasher, a Tasmanian devil, is missing, after playing hide and seek, so all the other Australian native animals go looking for him, though their logic is very, well, animalistic, as they look where they find their food.

I suppose this book is to teach us about different Australian animals and what food they eat. That is the only reason I can see for us to know abo

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Looking for Splasher is a short children’s book about a young Tasmanian Devil who is missing after playing hide-and-seek with her siblings. Kookie Kookaburra gathers several animals to help find her.

The pictures in this book are kind of cute and the story is okay although there isn’t much excitement even though Splasher is missing; there are a few things childre

Really cute book! I love the pictures of the animals. The little tasmanian devil Splasher gets lost in this story. All the little devils are playing hide and seek and one goes missing. They can't find their sister Splasher. There are many colorful animals all through the book, as they all go looking for the small devil. The mother has a bird named Kookie go looking for her offspring. The bird flies to a location that has other animals to alert them of the search. We see a lively adventure as eac ...more

Kind of scary story for littles. Cautionary tale. Little tasmanian devil plays hide and seek with little brothers and sister. She gets sleepy and falls asleep really well hidden in a log. Scares her poor family and friends as they search for her. Maybe remind children not to hide too well??? intros many animals from Down under children may want to learn more about. Illustrations are nicely done and cute!

I received a Kindle ARC from Netgalley in exchange for a fair review.

I read this book to my 5 year old and he liked it a lot. It teaches a good lesson of helpfulness and working together. My son’s favorite character was the wallaby and I liked that the names of the animals included the type of animal they were ( Pozz Possum).

How can you not love these cute little devils and their adventure? Splasher is lost and everyone must go looking to find him. The illustrations are so cute and the story is adorable. My kids loved this story. I highly recommend this.

I received a complimentary copy.

The book has a lot of silly named characters that would make children laugh, perhaps but the story is not strong. I know that there is some educational descriptions laced in but it just did not hit the mark for an amazing children's book.

A big thank you to NetGalley and Trafford Publishing for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. This is a children's book. It's an ok story, it's different because it utilizes Australian animals. The graphics were just ok for me. It was hard to tell if was a Tasmanian devil. I give this a 2.5. I was disappointed.
