 “An emotionally stirring, heart-grabbing plot. Pirate - The Barking Kookaburra is one of the cutest audio books for children I've ever heard. If you listen to it with your kids you will love Pirate.”

Linda Jo Martin,


“The full-cast narration brings each character to life, and Guinevere Spiesberger’s performance as Pirate is particularly endearing. Occasional sound effects and pleasant music evoke the Australian landscape. A good choice for elementary collections and social studies units on Australia.”

School Library Journal



“This is a cute, funny, AMAZING story!!!! GOOD WORK!!!! 5 Stars.”

Natasha, Smashwords (USA)


“This is a very sweet book with lovable and identifiable characters and an entertaining plot. The moral lessons contained in the book, about the value of friends, being different, dealing with being teased, working hard and persevering to learn new skills, and working together to help in times of need are all brought across in a wonderfully subtle and imaginative way.”

Danielle Bruckert, (GB)


“Pirate‘s adventures are full of fun and warmth and his high energy antics will give listeners plenty of giggles.”

Dee White, Boomerang Books


“Pirate as a character is one children can relate to with his imagination, taste for adventure and insecurities.  The story offers fun and danger for kids with a thirst for adventure and exploration.”

Magdalena Ball, The Compulsive Reader


“There is information; there is humour; there is descriptive language and the story encourages using the imagination.”


“There is more to this book than a story about a kookaburra. It has themes of childhood trauma, disassociation, identity, bullying, and the value of true friendship.”

Anastasia Gonis (Buzz Word Books)
