A rare handfish’s growing concern for the environment sees him make the arduous journey from the Derwent River. Through whimsical rhyming verse and beautifully hand-drawn illustrations, this story highlights many of the island’s lesser-known species. Fat Chance is a poignant reminder for children of all ages, as to the importance of preserving Tasmania’s wildlife.

Despite the dire circumstances the animals find themselves in, there is an engaging and positive message of hope for young and old alike.

Bopping along is a red-throated skink,  Listening to music and rapping in sync.  ‘I’ve just flown on in from my rock in the sea,  With a shy albatross who took pity on me.’

‘Slip aboard,’ said the Goshawk,  ‘We’ll be there in a tick,  I’m heading that way and I’m wickedly quick.  Now don’t you go getting your heart in a flutter,  I only eat snails cooked in garlic and butter.’
