Published by @harpercollinsaustralia This is a wonderful book to explore an iconic, Australian mammal in an easy to understand manner. The little girl in the story, Emily wants to find out why Millie loves ants so much. Each page takes us on Emily's journey as she follows Millie the echidna step by step through the garden. The surprise at the end is a fantastic way to show the importance of Millie's journey. I loved this book because: 1/ the illustrations are beautiful. 2/ the story has a rhythmic flow that makes it fantastic to read out loud. 3/ it's Australian without being stereotypical and cliche. 4/ it's educational without being boring!
