More information:
Explore the fascinating world of native Australian animals through the five basic senses — sight, sound, smell, taste and touch.

Covering more than 145 truly astounding animals — from sharp-eyed whale sharks to sticky-bellied green tree frogs — Sensational Australian Animals showcases the strange things these creatures can do with their eyes, ears, noses, mouths and skin! Meet birds that laugh, frogs that quack and fish that sing. Discover mammals that glow in the dark and seahorses disguised as seaweed. Be surprised by turtles that breathe through their bums and squirm at lizards that clean their eyes with their tongues. And then there's the dangerous creatures that bite and sting!

Be intrigued, amazed and astonished by what insects, birds, spiders, fish and many other animals are capable of! Reading level varies from child to child, but we recommend this book for ages 8 to 12.
