Dexter the Courageous Koala

When Ashley’s long awaited puppy is snatched from her at the last moment, her parents send her on a holiday to cheer her up. But the trip isn’t anything like she expected. Picked up by her eccentric aunt Micky and driven out beyond mobile range to “Toad Hall”, Ashley’s troubles are just beginning. In a matter of hours she’s facing a furious storm, a flooded creek, and an electrical blackout - not to mention a koala emergency.

Ashley manages to save an injured mother koala and her joey, Dexter, who have been knocked from their tree. But the storm has cut off the only access road to the property, and the koalas desperately need treatment. Ashley and Dexter must be braver than they have ever imagined to find a way to safety.
