Possum and Wattle: My Big Book of Australian Words
|Author:||Bronwyn Bancroft (Illustrator); Sally Morgan (Introduction by)|
An eye-opening vocabulary book featuring words taken from Australia's inspiring natural environment--with a glossary of Aboriginal terms
More than 100 words about Australian animals, plants, and landscapes are defined and explained in this unique word book. From blossoms and bees through wombats and willy willys, the most prominent aspects of Australia's beautiful landscape are detailed here. Lavish illustrations range from small vignettes to expansive narrative landscapes and both captivate and celebrate the uniqueness of Australia and its language.
