Sunday Moon and her besties Ockie, Kirra and Lottie go to Club Koala after-school care when school ends. They think it is so boring! But when they hear that the joeys need pouches, they go straight to work.

The four friends learn to knit (however Sunday isn’t too good). Read The Good Times of Pelican Rise: Save the Joeys! to find out what they do next!

This book is realistic fiction so if you like real-life stories, you will enjoy this one. I really liked it. I wanted to know how they would save the joeys. I recommend it for ages 9+.
