and what a lot of wattle!

Elizabeth Honey
NZD $16.99

A playful, irreverent counting book that celebrates the special things we know and love about Australia. Start with 'one little nipper', then count the pies, potaroos and blue wrens up to 'twelve kelpie legs'. In this friendly and amusing book you can count from one to a thrillion!

Count the busy wrens on their fine stick legs,

the bowerbird's treasures, his bottle tops and pegs.

How many potaroos? How many pies?

How many gum leaves? How many flies?

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!
