Simple text creatively presented helps the young reader learn to recognised Australian animals and the special movements they make.

Starting with Kangaroos hoping, each page adds another animal, bird or lizard to the story until, you guessed it, they reach the riverbank and meet the big, fat, sleepy crocodile.

Join the journey of the bush creatures presented in simple, colourful, easy to understand style and as with all Ros Moriartys stories see what happens at the end.


Once again, illustrated with vivid art forms from the Balarinji Design Studio all young readers will love meeting all the animal of the Australian bush.

The animals story is translated into Yanuwa language, spoken in Borroloola , in the Northern Territory of Australia and adds the finishing touch to a delightful book.
