Australia is an extraordinary country and many unusual creatures call it their home. On land and in the sky, underground and underwater, that’s where you’ll find them. This non-fiction collection of animal stories, lovingly places each amazing animal in the spotlight – with fascinating facts, scientific names, figures and breakout boxes, to help bring them to life.
