A classic showcase of Australian baby animals and their families for very young children from a consummate author/illustrator.

With one animal baby featured on each double page spread, this colourful introduction to iconic Australian creatures groups them according to their baby names: joeys, hatchlings, fry, chicks, puggles, pups and platypups. The animals cover the full gamut of family groups: from marsupials to monotremes and reptiles to birds, Each baby animal is described by one line of text (in bold type). And there's a special additional fact for extra interest.
