This charming children’s book was written and illustrated by 15-year-old Neeve Blackham-Jennings. She was inspired to write it as part of a class project at Perth Waldorf School, which aimed to challenge students to make the world a better place. Neeve chose to write and illustrate a children’s book to raise awareness, funds and support for the protection of Critically Endangered local species, the Western Swamp Tortoise.


The WA Naturalists’ Club helped Neeve with some funds for publishing the book and she is selling Wally’s way home to raise funds for the Friends of the Western Swamp Tortoise, an organisation that supports the rehabilitation of habitat and breeding programs for the species.
