ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Baby marsupials are collectively called joeys, and this charming book with its simple rhyming sentences introduces a range of active baby animals. (So wombats trundle off to graze. Sugar gliders leave their dreys.) The sweetly formed illustrations are also simple, but realistic, set in the habitat the creatures favour with a predominantly muted palette of colour. Each page is labelled with the animal's indigenous (when known), common and scientific names. A truly beautiful companion to last year's Busy Beaks suitable for any young naturalist 3-6  Lindy

Journey through the night with some of Australia's most fascinating furry friends. Meet waddling wombats, bounding bilbies, peculiar possums and daring devils in this delightful introduction to our cute and quirky marsupials.
