An A-z Of Australian Bush Creatures
The original, large format editions of Australian Bush Creatures have now been through 6 reprints with over 12,000 copies in print. This standard format paperback edition in bookshelf friendly format of 300 x 230 mm was the result of many book trade requests.
From Abalone to Zebra Finch, and the hundreds of creatures in between, this delightfully crafted book explores Australia's amazingly varied wildlife shown in its natural habitat.
Over 400 land, sea and air-born creatures are organised alphabetically using a mixture of common, scientific and aboriginal names. Each A-Z plate also explores Australia's varied landscapes, both natural and introduced. Every page is a journey of discovery for the reader, with many animals as difficult to instantly recognise here, as they are in the bush. To help locate and identify all the bush creatures depicted, informative plates follow the main A-Z sections and form a visual appendix that will have the reader cross referencing for years to come.
Australian Bush Creatures trade edition is thoroughly researched and revised, with every creature meticulously illustrated and placed in its usual habitat. It is , as the illustrator describes it, a window into the worlds second largest eco-system that will awake a curiosity and love for the extraordinary diversity of the Australian environment and its inhabitants.
An A-Z of Australian Bush Creatures is also a stunning showcase of the artistic skills, imagination and passion for Australian wildlife of Myke Mollard. This wonderful book is destined to become a classic of its kind and a treasured part of any child's library.
