Australian Baby Animals

author/illustrator: Frané Lessac

Do you know which Australian baby animal is called a puggle? (Hint: it’s not a designer dog!) Which babies are called joeys? (You’ll be surprised at how many.) Which baby animals from Australia are looked after by their dad? What animal is carried around—gingerly—in its mother’s toothy mouth? Frisky little dingoes may be called pups, but so are a type of bat called flying foxes. There are so many unusual things to learn about Australian baby animals in this simple and satisfying book from award-winning creator Frané Lessac.

Playful verses, captivating facts, and vibrant colors will have little animal lovers poring over these pages about the young of several species.
