A playful, irreverent counting book that celebrates special things we know and love about Australia, including 'one little nipper' and 'twelve kelpie legs' as well as pies, potaroos and blue wrens.
Count the busy wrens on their fine stick legs,
the bowerbird's treasures, his bottle tops and pegs.
How many gum leaves? How many flies?
How many potaroos? How many pies?
Now count the strawberries on that luscious pavlova.
Quick! Count the lamingtons... Oh! None left over!
In Elizabeth Honey's playful and absolutely Australian counting book you can count from one to a thrillion!
