As part of a school assignment, Molly's supposed to take a picture of a wildlife animal. Luckily for her, on the way back from the river Molly saves an injured rat-like animal from the claws of the neighbour's cat. Her father explains that the rat isn't a rat but a bandicoot and that she can't keep him because they need to grow in the wilderness where they can scavenge for food and build a family. Molly isn't convinced because the little critter sure looks like he would like someone to take care of him, so she vows to persuade her parents to let her keep the animal. How she does that is cute and funny since, the more Molly tries the more she messes up, until the only option she sees is to kidnap the little animal from her grandma who's a wildlife rescue officer.

Molly Gumnut Rescues a Bandicoot is a middle grade adventure for boys and girls aged 8 to 12 with lots of good twists. The language is kept age appropriate with a few difficult words to keep kids entertained and maybe provide a bit of a challenge. Molly's character is absolutely endearing. She is a funny, little girl with a bit of an attitude and a mind of her own. She simply adores animals and that's usually a good thing, but people around her just don't want to see it.
The humour was great, the plot kept me wondering what would happen next. A thoroughly enjoyable read for the young and young-at-heart.
