The amazing A to Z thing

Sally Morgan, illustrated by Bronwyn Bancroft
Little Hare Books [Hardie Grant Egmont]
ISBN: 9781921894190           RRP: $26.99

This is an alphabet book in which an echidna called Anteater makes an exciting discovery which he wants to share with a parade of animals, all Australian, some uniquely so. The illustrations are richly coloured in indigenous dot-style; they glow, jewel-like, as the reader moves from page to page. At first none of the animals want to join Anteater in his exciting discovery but once they see his bubbling enthusiasm, that changes. As to what it is, the reader is never told and but is given plenty of clues at the end.
