About Barrenjoey Books

Jennifer Truswell is a zoo keeper and dog trainer by profession and an author and artist by passion.

With a deep interest in Australia’s more obscure creatures, Jennifer gets a huge kick out of seeing children, tourists and adults alike getting excited about some of Australia’s lesser known, but equally fascinating animals. And so formed the idea for Pouches, Paws, Tails & Claws.

The inspiritional Jennifer then wrote, illustrated and self-published this beautifully illustrated book, whilst on maternity leave. No mean feat!

Jennifer spent most of her childhood travelling around Australia in a caravan with her parents and sister which instilled in her a love for the environment.

Her book is now stocked in some of Australia’s top museums, zoos and schools, so remember that you saw it here first!

    This book is a wonderful introduction to lots of native Aussie wildlife! My 2.5 year old loves to read this nightly, and it is teaching him some great information that he may not learn elsewhere in the USA. The shipping was reasonable and fast for sending out of the country! Thank you so much for the lovely packaging and for shipping to us. It was wonderful to unwrap for my little guy!
