Illustrated by Shaun Tan. Bestselling author, Marsden, has created a dramatically moving allegory of colonisation told from the perspective of native animals, in this stunningly illustrated volume. Examining the consequences of the arrival of a group of rabbits with unfamiliar ways, the story shows how colonisation can result in the domination of the environment and its other inhabitants. A thought-provoking book, it earned its author and illustrator the CBCA Picture Book of the Year.

i love this book but i would like to ask a question regarding the title of the book: why is the title called The Rabbits??
I read this book today. I honestly love because it tells you how Europeans created our country that we live in but is also very sad because they had war and the wallabies lost them all the time and then the rabbits created the stolen generation and sent the babies and older children away so there were no more aboriginals left in Australia.
