Where is galah?

Sally Morgan
Little Hare Books [Hardie Grant Egmont]
ISBN: 9781921894466
RRP: $24.95

Brilliant colours in bold indigenous patterns hide Galah as Dingo wanders an Australian bush landscape looking for his friend. Galah is on the page but not so cryptically hidden that young readers can’t see him. That’s part of the fun! The simple, repetitive pattern of the text includes new sounds to mimic as other native animals enter the scene. Watch the sky closely as it marks the passage of time. At the end of his day Dingo is exhausted and turns the tables on Galah in this highly entertaining and vibrant hide-and-seek story for the very young.
