About: Prolific Aussie children’s book writer, Mem Fox, does it again with this cute rhyming book aimed at the very young.

Fox has a talent for talking to kids at their level – little ones will relate well to the nonsensical language, sure to tickle their funny bone.

But what makes this simple book extra special are the stunning illustrations by artist David Miller, who creates wondrous, padded, 3D pictures from paper. Pictures full of humour and movement – the highlight of which is a feathery goose at the end of the book, each feathered carefully sliced from textured paper.
