Australian animals and their young are celebrated in this picture book. Both words and illustrations give a real sense of the animal’s appearance and habits. A mother kangaroo, for example, bounds after her joey across a double-page spread and a platypus dives through a flowing river. The language is poetic and lyrical, painting word pictures of the environment in which each creature lives. The reader will experience a strong impression of the author’s and illustrator’s love of the Australian landscape. The bold, bright illustrations are full of movement and colour and are a celebration of Indigenous Australian art.
