The saying goes that there is more to a book than its cover. But is there more to a snake than its skin? That’s what Maddie, a deadly but beautiful Taipan, wants to prove in the new Netflix movie Back to the Outback.
Maddie leads a crew of zoo animals that are often derided as ugly and dangerous on a journey to the Outback where they can be who they are inside. Along the way, they learn what it means to be a family, and, like books themselves, that they each have fantastic stories to tell and rich lives within.
Isla Fisher, who voices Maddie, recently sat down to promote the value of libraries. You don’t need to go on a cross-country adventure to explore new places; libraries take us on fantastic adventures every day.
Librarians and library lovers, please help spread the word by sharing Isla's message. More information and link to download the video are available on the ALA website.
