Karen Tyrrell author (me) created this eco adventure after following David Attenborough for years.

I wrote Great Barrier Reef Rescue to educate and empower children to care for the reef and endangered marine creatures.

  • Steve Tyrrell

    Your heart, soul and love are in this book. Fantastic achievement and I hope it gains the success it deserves. Preserving the reef and protecting our ecology is critically important, your book carries this message proudly and clearly. A beautiful blend of fantasy adventure and environmental imperatives.

  • Thanks Steve, For being as passionate about Great Barrier Reef Rescue as I am. Thanks for working with me on this book. Cant wait to present our book talk to schools… Karen 🙂

  • Hi Karen,
    This is another great book in the Song Bird series. I loved it. 🙂
    I am very disappointed that I won’t be able to join you at the launch on 5 May as it’s a special weekend for my family. Perhaps I’ll catch up with you on another occasion.
    Best wishes,

  • Hi Norah,
    I’m disappointed you won’t be able to make my book launch on the 5th May. But I totally understand, Family comes first.
    I hope I can catch up with you at another time, perhaps at one of my May events.
    Thanks for your awesome Review on Goodreads.
    Take care,
    Karen x
