This spectacular hardback picture book is a follow-on from its companion volume 'Possum and Wattle'. 'Kangaroo and Crocodile: My Big Book of Australian Animals' presents Australian animals and landscapes in Bronwyn Bancroft's uniquely colourful style - from eagles to echidnas, geckos to crocodiles, from desert animals to creatures of the coral reef.
This collection of unique Australian animals is simply arranged with one animal per page, illustrated in the bright colours of Indigenous art. For added information and interest, facts about each animal are included, in alphabetical order, on the last three pages.
Bronwyn Bancroft is a leading Indigenous artist whose work is held at the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Australian Museum. She is a descendant of the Bundjalung people and grew up in Lionsville in country New South Wales
