One small spark brought fire awake, winding like a small black snake, fire flickered, fire crept, flames snickered, bushfire leaps...

Inspired by the bushfires that have affected many Australians, Fire is a moving and sensitive story of a natural disaster as seen through the eyes of a cockatoo. The fire mercilessly engulfs homes and land, leaving a devastating path of destruction.
