I cannot BELIEVE this is on here. I had started to wonder if I owned the last remaining copy on the earth because it's out of print and I randomly found it in a charity shop for 50p and fell in love with it and then I found that NO-ONE else had read it and asking people if they had read it made me sound insane. This book is so nice with these fantastic made up creatures that contrast in every way possible. It just makes me happy to read it
I remember this book being read to my class when I was in primary school. I loved it and still have such vivid images in my head from that reading. I felt such a rush of excitement when I found it on the bookshelf of my library recently and couldn't wait to share it with a year2/3 class I have once a week. Suffice to say, they loved it so much they want me to track down the other stories in this series and read them. Win!

An Aussie classic which I have treasured. Has loads of little 'language' jokes in, which I loved as a youngster. A really cute book.
