Responsible decision-making: analysing situations and choices

Sneaky Snake is a picture book text in which a joey (baby kangaroo) loses his mother and finds himself confronted by a stranger with not so good intentions.


Bubba Kanga loves jumping along in his mother’s pouch. But one day she jumps so high, Bubba Kanga bumps right out!


Look out, Bubba Kanga! Here comes sneaky Snake.


No! No! No! 

Tell that snake to 

Go! Go! Go!


With wonderful illustrations that bring the Australian outback to life, Jill Eggleton explores ‘stranger danger’, skilfully building up the tension in a way that will make your children join the chorus of the squawking birds before the final happy outcome delivering children the message.
