Reading this lively picture book is like watching a playgroup engaged in distinctively child’s play - though the children in the drawings are native Australian animals. The scenes in the images carry the story; the only words used record the noises and play-comments as the action moves along. The watercolour illustrations are lively and spontaneous, with the bush freshness of May Gibbs, entertaining toddlers who will be delighted to join in on the noise making.
