Australia's Deadly Monsters are supremely adapted to life within the great southern continent's varied and often hostile environments. The series takes us on a journey through monsoonal floodplains, parched desert dunes, and lofty highlands as we explore the unique lives, habitats, and hierarchies of some of Australia's monstrous creatures.

Australia's Deadly Monsters - Monster Blood Tattoo: Foundling - Netflix
Foundling is the first book of Monster Blood Tattoo, a children's/young adult's fantasy trilogy written by Australian author, D.M. Cornish. It tells the story of Rossamünd, a boy unfortunately christened with a girl's name, who has lived his entire life in a foundlingery (kind of an orphanage) before he is chosen to become a lamplighter in a far away city. The book's action takes place entirely on the Half-Continent, a Dickensian world run by arcane science and alchemy, and plagued with deadly (and not-so-deadly) monsters. It also won Best Young Adult Novel at the 2006 Aurealis Awards. The American Library Association put Monster Blood Tattoo: Foundling on the 2007 Best Books for Young Adults list.
