KNICK KNACK BUSHWHACK
Illustrated by Mandy Foot, ( Hachette, softcover, $ 14.99)
THE popular classic, This Old Man ( Knick Knack Paddywhack) has been given an Aussie- fied makeover.
Now a whole host of Australian animals sing, drum and come roaming home. It’s a great way to introduce very young children to koalas, crocodiles, echidnas, kookaburras and other bush creatures, while those already familiar with them will enjoy the lively illustrations, the rhyme and rhythm of the song, and the nonsense lyrics.
