How wonderful it would be if life were always as idyllic as it has been for our koalas in the three previous volumes of “The Great Koala Novel”!
But alas, as we all know, the enjoyable epochs of our lives are often sadly and most rudely
interrupted by bewildering calamities, unexpected disasters, and terribly tragic losses. This is a lesson that the koalas of both groves shall learn only too well in Volume IV of our “Koalaland” series: “Deadly Confrontation”.
Yet despite the ominous occurrences looming on the horizon, there is a message of hope that serves to inspire our furry friends even in the most dire of circumstances.
As old Chashibu put it in his poem:
“In this story, a lesson may well be learned:
Even great disasters can sometimes be turned.
With guidance, and wisdom, while working as one,
And deciding to fight, instead of to run,
There is no limit to what koalas can achieve.
'Tis with that message, that I now take my leave.”
