Our favourite intrepid pilot, Captain Kangaroo, has assembled his Aussie animal friends for another great adventure the annual Vintage Outback Race, also known as the Big Bush Bash!
In CAPTAIN KANGAROO AND THE BIG BUSH BASH, five teams test their skills in this infamous race that takes contestants across the beautiful Australian landscape. Our teams cross the Murray in a paddlesteamer, search for opals in the Opal Fields of Lightning Ridge, meet the Flying Doctors in Alice, and finally reach the finish line in Broken Hill a little dusty but no worse for wear.

Comments about Captain Kangaroo and the Big Bush Bash:
This book (and others by the same author/illustrator) are fantastic for reading to my two year old son. The bright colourful illustrations hold my sons attention and the rhythmic storylines are simple yet full of adventure. It's also great that it is a book based on Australian animals, places and themes that are relevant to Aussie kids - so many books feature American and European characters set in environments that Australian children don't get to experience. I think it's an awesome book as does my two year old who makes me read it to him daily.
