Pannikin and Pinta free pdf Master story teller Colin Thiele returns to the magical world of the wild pelicans in this outstanding picture story book, illustrated by renowned Australian artist, Peter Gouldthorpe. At rare intervals great floods fill the desert basin of Lake Eyre in Central Australia, and for a while wildlife teems along the shore. But the miracle is short-lived. In the fierce summer heat the lake shrinks, the water turns to brine and the fish die. Birds such as pelicans then face a vast flight across the desert to the southern coast, and many die along the way. Pannikin and Pinta is the story of a pelican family that sets out on that heroic journey. Pannikin
