Author(s): Bronwyn Bancroft (Illustrator)
An Australian ABC of Animals, a lavishly illustrated alphabet book by well-known Aboriginal artist Bronwyn Bancroft, is a must-have for every home and library. The book is both a delightful introduction to the alphabet, and a unique exploration of Australian wildlife--some familiar, others more unusual--as seen through the eyes of an indigenous artist. Animals include: kangaroo, bandicoot, wombat, echidna, cockatoo, frog, and goanna--and many more.
