Tania's Picks: Kangaroo and Crocodile

With striking, lusciously-coloured Indigenous illustrations by award-winning artist Bronwyn Bancroft, Kangaroo and Crocodile is a celebration of our unique fauna, from the lesser known fence skink to the mighty great white shark.

Bancroft has captured such beauty in her images - the background patterns, the fluidity of the animals - the colour choice - is just breathtaking.

A must-own for any Aussie kid - and their overseas mates, too.
