ABC of Australian Animals
This book is both a delightful introduction to the alphabet, and a unique exploration of Australian wildlife--some familiar, others more unusual--as seen through the eyes of an indigenous artist. Animals include: kangaroo, bandicoot, wombat, echidna, cockatoo, frog and goanna--and many more.
