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.
