This page will give some photographs and discussion about the natural history of the animals and birds in The Priceless Princess. Even Australians know so little about their native creatures. If you are fascinated by some of the creatures mentioned below, start your own research project! It is great fun to build up your own knowledge and understanding, even to build your own website. There are some great free website templates available today. You can try Wix, for example, which is ideal for young communicators.
The creatures pictured and discussed here are in the approximate order you meet them in the book. Of course in reality they can’t really talk, certainly not in English. The Priceless Princess’s special ability is that she can understand and “talk” with the birds and animals she meets. A lot of children feel something like this when they are very young. Perhaps it is not so impossible. The world of interspecies communication has hardly been studied but the more we find out the more amazing it is. Many people feel they can talk with their animal companions, such as their dogs and cats, and animals seem to be getting more and more able to communicate with humans, judging by the many videos we see online today.
