Can you imagine Crocodile Dundee as an animal? Paddington Bear in shining armor? Or Winnie the Pooh on a noble steed? Meet Sir Sydney Dinkum a rascally koala bear from the Outback of Australia who believes he can be The World's Next Big Hero. Like Dr. Doolittle he has the super power to talk to all animals, including humans! Like Don Quixote, he believes it's his job to right the wrongs of the world! But is this just an Impossible Dream? Can a koala really be dubbed knight? Can a little marsupial armed with a boomerang make a difference in the world? Or will Sydney make a mess of things, as usual? The only way to find out is to join Sir Sydney Dinkum on his whacky adventures. Don't Delay! Add to Your Cart Today! Read More for Reviews and Testimonials!

Read an Excerpt

A noise from overhead stopped Sancho in his tracks. At first he thought it might just be his imagination, but as he took another step a voice called out, "Please don't leave us!" He scanned the surrounding trees but he couldn't see a thing. He'd never heard of talking trees, but on such a strange day as this he assumed anything was possible.
Just then Sydney returned. "Come on, Sancho! We haven't got all day!"
?But, Sydney!" cried Sancho, "I think these trees are talking to me!"
Sydney stared up into the thick blanket of leaves. "Hello," he called. "Is anyone up there or has my friend lost his marbles?"
To both their amazement, a small boy dropped out of a nearby tree and landed just a few steps from where they stood. "Hello," said the boy. "My name's Chip Horn."
"I see," said Sydney, "and do you live all alone up there in that tree?"
Chip giggled. "Oh no," he said, "my mother and father are up there as well. But they're too scared to climb down. I told them the crocodile was gone, but now they're not so sure about you."


The Australian koala is in danger of extinction. A portion of all book proceeds are donated to the AUSTRALIAN KOALA FOUNDATION.


??a fantastic website which offers wonderful free activities for kids as well as great guides for teachers and parents.? Jeannette Marshall, Teacher and Parent

Product Description: Meet The World's Next Big Hero! A zany koala knight. Did you ever have a dream that seemed so real that when you woke up you weren't sure you'd been dreaming? Well, that's exactly what happened to Sydney Dinkum. One night he had a strange dream that simply wouldn't go away - even after he'd gotten out of bed and had a shower! Every time he looked in the mirror, a knight in shining armor looked back! Now Sydney never thought of himself as a special koala. It's true, he was born with a knack for languages and can speak with humans as easily as crocodiles. And he's always played a pretty mean rock and roll guitar (at least to his own ear if not to others). Besides that, however, his primary occupation used to be doing as little as possible except sit in his tree fort and munch on Eucalyptus leaves. That's what made the dream so strange. Sydney had never wanted to be a knight in shining armor! In fact, he wasn't at all certain what a knight in shining armor did! Or even how to become one! All he knew was the dream that wouldn't go away was now his destiny. He must become Sir Sydney Dinkum - Koala Knight. He soon learns that every knight needs a loyal squire. His best friend, Sancho, a wisecracking wombat, thinks Sydney's gone bonkers but agrees to join the adventure. Sydney's noble steed - another crucial requirement for a knight - comes to him in the form of a special camel, whom he dubs Rosie. The world has never seen such an unlikely group of heroes. Fighting evil and righting wrongs has never been so much fun! So join Sydney and his friends as they travel the globe in search of action, adventure and plenty of laughs. At you can learn more about the koala, download free puzzles and games and join the Official Fair Dinkum club! Members will receive a free 50 page E-book with printables, puzzles and games. You can also buy the Audio Book, join Sir Sydney on Facebook, Twitter and see his hilariouis single on Youtube.
