Attractively packaged for emerging readers, All Because of Jackson is the story of a most unusual rabbit. While his friends burrow and play, Jackson sits of the cliff side watching the tall ships coming and going. All he wants to do is sail away across the sea – taking his girl friend Bunny with him. And that’s just what Jackson does. How the rabbits live aboard Atalantis and how they find Australia when they reach it is a lively story that also tells something of the true story of how rabbits reached Australia.
'I want to sail the seas', said Jackson. 'I want to see the world . . .' Jackson is a very unusual rabbit - a rabbit with a dream. He spends his days watching the tall sailing-ships coming and going. He longs to go to sea too. So one day - with his girlfriend, Bunny - Jackson stows away on the Atalanta and sails off in search of a new life . . .
