    I really dont think this is a childrens book, there are some rather violent themes in it, including murder I diddnt like Blinky as a character, i thought he was so rude to everyone he met for no reason I also think there was animals in the bush that shouldnt be there like for one, there are no hedgehogs in Australia Besides little details like that it was a cute story.

    I loved reading this with my kids I wish I could fake an Australian accent Blinky is not a good role model and many of the other characters are selfish, but we thought the antics were cute We listed the animals as they came up and looked them up later.

    Very sad to say that this childhood classic is not to be a classic for my children We stopped at p 138 I don t usually let the kids stop reading a book part way through, however, they honestly didn t like reading it and found it boring I was disappointed as the movie was coming out last holidays and I had wanted to read it before we went to the movie, but that proved to be no further motivation The movie, was nice but lacklustre, and did not provide additional incentive to finish.

    I loved to watch the animation series of Blinky Bill when I was a kid The book isn t quite as funny as the TV show but it is really worth reading anyway It has a slightly different focus at least at the beginning A lot is told of the danger the koalos and the other animals are living in Kids can really learn a lot about Australian nature and animals from this book.

    Blinky Bill, the mischievous anthropomorphic koala, is well known around the world through the TV cartoon and movies, but the book version is a little darker He runs away from home several times and constantly disobeys his mother, who of course beats him when she catches him this would have been a normal punishment at the time it was first published in the 1930s His father is brutally murdered by a man with a gun quite early in the story The animals are often cruel to each other for exampl Blinky Bill, the mischievous anthropomorphic koala, is well known around the world through the TV cartoon and movies, but the book version is a little darker He runs away from home several times and constantly disobeys his mother, who of course beats him when she catches him this would have been a normal punishment at the time it was first published in the 1930s His father is brutally murdered by a man with a gun quite early in the story The animals are often cruel to each other for example, Blinky often talks about death rather flippantly and at one point, kills a nice frog, ants kill a goanna and snake, and a fox is tricked into eating a prickle filled dead rabbit You could argue that the harsher aspects of the story bring home the difficulties of life to children but it seemed a little strong to me.For some reason, the pictures are often a long way from the text they illustrate, and this forces the reader to flip back and forth unnecessarily This is the 1991 edition, so I hope that later editions have corrected this problem In the story itself, there are some strange mistakes of biology, such as hedgehogs and porcupines living in the Australian bush, despite neither of them being native to the country The worst error is that Wall constantly refers to the koalas as bears when they are marsupials Perhaps the intended juvenile audience would not know the word or understand the difference, but they are challenged with tough vocabulary like impudence , perspiration and consciousness , so I think they could cope with the truth about the koala My parents read this to me when I was very young but I didn t remember much, only that I liked it Despite its shortcomings, as an adult I once again enjoyed the adventures of Blinky Bill roaming around the countryside, being cheeky with wombats, kangaroos, kookaburras and other Australian wildlife, and his awkward encounters with human beings It gives children a fine message of conservation and urges them to maintain a sense of fun and justice in life

    I would recommend this book to an older kid but as bedtime reading for younger kids Blinky s behaviour in the story was quite inappropriate in my view, which are difficult for kids younger than eight to understand and may negatively influence their behaviour as a result For example, Blinky Bill stole cabbages from Farmer Scratchet but defended himself by saying that it was borrowing.Moreover, the use of language in this book was quite colloquial and is not suited for young kids who are just I would recommend this book to an older kid but as bedtime reading for younger kids Blinky s behaviour in the story was quite inappropriate in my view, which are difficult for kids younger than eight to understand and may negatively influence their behaviour as a result For example, Blinky Bill stole cabbages from Farmer Scratchet but defended himself by saying that it was borrowing.Moreover, the use of language in this book was quite colloquial and is not suited for young kids who are just beginning to learn composition at school

    I listened to the audiobook because I wanted to check out literature to read with my son when he s older Blinky Bill entertains and delights he s the same kind of mischievous character as Peter Rabbit or Curious George Australian literature often falls through the cracks so I m pleased to have stumbled upon Dorothy Wall s creation My son is only 5 months old but I ll read this with him when he s 3 or 4.
