Simple, intelligent, bright and cheerful, this early childhood concept book introduces animals and numbers and celebrates indigenous art in a joyous, non-didactic and playful way.

Ten Scared Fish is an animal counting book with a difference. Following the river to the sea, the reader meets and counts the animals until finally ten little fish meet a big scary shark! Bold illustrations and a delightfully playful text help readers familiarise themselves with prepositions as well as animals and numbers.

About the Author

Ros Moriarty, formerly a journalist with Radio Australia in Indigenous affairs, women's issues and the environment, has spent most of her professional life as managing director of Australia's leading Indigenous design studio, Balarinji, a business she established with husband John Moriarty in 1983. Balarinji is best known for covering Qantas 747 aircraft in Indigenous art. During 27 years of delivering groundbreaking projects, including the Emu Dreaming tutu for the Australian Ballet's 40th birthday and the Hands across the Land poster for the 2000 Sydney Harbour Bridge Walk for Reconciliation, the company has fostered the careers of a large number of Indigenous artists and designers from all over Australia, and returned royalties to NT artists since 1995. Ros Moriarty is the author of an acclaimed memoir, Listening to Country, and founder of a non-profit organisation, Indi Kindi, supporting pre-literacy education.
