ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- There are many A-Z books using Australian animals but this one is set apart by giving a handful of interesting facts on the featured creature (and by the distribution maps at the back of the book in case the young reader wants to know where they might find them!) Colourful slightly naïve and joyful illustrations show the animals in natural poses and simplified habitats. I rather liked that X stood for Crusader Bugs because the insects have a x-shaped cross on their backs! A book both useful and attractive, for ages 3-5. Lindy Jones


Australia is full of the most amazing animals on the planet! What animal has six thumbs? What animal produces square poo? What animal is made up of 95 per cent water and is highly venomous? Discover the answers to these questions and more in this factastic tour of Australian animals.

A is for Australian Animals is a most impress nonfiction, alphabet picture book. * Magpies Magazine * I love Frane Lessac's books. Her artwork is incredibly appealing to kids and adults alike. * The Book Chook * A is for Australian Animals is a must read for any Australian * Educate Empower * This is a unique alphabet book that will enlighten and entertain any child or adult who reads it. * Read Plus * This would make a wonderful addition to every Aussie kid's bookshelf or a lovely souvenir for children (or adults) visiting from overseas. -- Carissa Mason * Reading Time * A is for Australian Animals, combines facts about these animals with deatiled, delightful illustrations. There is one or more animal for every letter of the alphabet, with each given a page or spread containing several facts about the animal against illustrations bringing both the animal and its environment to life. Combining Lessac's gouache illustration style with a range of facts, A is for Australian Animals is both visually and mentally engaging. Suitable for schools and home enjoyment. -- Sally Murphy * Aussie Reviews *
