This is a Mopoke. Mopoke loves peace and quiet. He is about to find out that you can't always get what you want.

Visually brilliant, and hysterically funny, Philip's pictures tell a thousand words, with the support of some very sparse, but hilarious, text. This is a book destined to become a classic.

    4.5 stars. Read it to my guinea pig, he appreciated the voices I did too. Will read it to my nannying kids (4 year olds) tomorrow and probably get an even better response. My favourite page was "#%*@!...

  • Rebecca Johnson

    I LOVED THIS BOOK. It is so simple, a series of puns describing many kinds of mopokes (small Australian owl). It's funny, the illustrations are subtlety hilarious. It was one of those books you'll jus...

    I have just finished reading Mopoke by Philip Bunting. Naively I firstly assumed that a Mopoke was simply another made up or fantasy character but I couldn't have been any more wrong. In fact a Mopoke...

    The presentation is perfect. Simple yet captivating pictures. Sleek, black book with black backgrounds which you don't usually see in children's books. The pictures are clever and presenting the owl i...
