Tim and Ed

written by Ursula Dubosarsky

Penguin Random House Australia 2014

Here is Tim.
And here is Ed.
Same eyes, same mouth,
Same feet, same head.

Tim and Ed love to be together all the time.  So what will happen when Ed goes away for the night?  A picture book about the beginnings of independence, and about being the same - but different!

Take it as a simple story about two brothers. Take it as a comment on individualism. Take it how you will. But take it.
Cassie Hamer, Book Birdy
This gorgeous rhyming book has a beautiful rhythm, a gentle humour, and a lovely message about being unique, no matter how attached we are to family.
Tania McCartney, Kids' Book Review
The attention to detail in the illustrations matches beautifully with the carefully chosen language for this story.  Tim and Ed are twin koalas and their beaming faces on the front cover are a clue to the joyous adventures within.
