This review is from: Steve and Me (Paperback)
When I first caught sight of Crocodile Hunter with Steve Irwin on the TV I didn't take to him immediately as I thought he was 'acting up' for the cameras - however when I caught bits of the programme I grew to like him, especially as everyone was saying 'what you see is what you get with Steve', I ended up watching every episode I could! When I saw this book I could not wait to get it - and am extremely pleased I saw it advertised on Amazon - I thoroughly enjoyed it - found it hard to put it down! The stories of Steve and his family, how his parents started the animal park, with three small children - and going through the growth of the park with them up to how big Australia Zoo is now and the fun they had as a family, and the difficult times as well - all very well written by Terri. Towards the end of the book she actually says she wrote a lot more which had to be reduced to get the book down to the size it is - I would love a follow up book with more information about how the Zoo increased in size, the staff, what Steve and Terri took on together, how Bob and Lyn came up with the idea in the first place - by the sounds of it there was a lot of information which was removed - so why not another book - sounds like most of the work has already been done! Laughs at times, tears at times - written from the heart and a lot of love shines through. They were very lucky to have found each other - even though the time was cut short so tragically.
