First appearing in 1933, Blinky Bill has become a classic character in Australian children's literature, and the Blinky Bill books have never gone out of print. Blinky finds out that his mother plans to send him to Mrs. Magpie's school, hoping he'll return a little less mischievous. Blinky decides he'd rather run away. While away he meets a colorful collection of animals, gets a job at a bush bazaar before things get out of hand, and a trip to Mr. Smifkin's farm turns to disaster. But after all the trouble, Blinky finds himself about to do a good deed for some bush babies... This is the second book featuring the naughty koala.
