Hop Up! Wriggle Over!

Hop up, wriggle over, wakey wakey, HUNGRY!
Crunch crunch, gobble gobble, lick lick, MORE!
BONG BONG, clang clang, ting ting, SHHH!
Come on, slow coach, Zip! Zap! ZOOOM!

Come and play with a frolicsome family of unique Australian animals. Join in with the sounds and expressions as the young ones zip, boing and bounce their way through the day.

With Mum as a koala and Dad as a red kangaroo, plus nine baby animals (wombat, numbat, echidna, quoll, wallaby, bilby, possum, quokka and antechinus), every minute of the day is wild romping fun! From waking in the morning, gobbling breakfast, drumming with spoons, zooming to the park, playing till it's bathtime - life's just one big game until bedtime.

Hop Up! Wriggle Over! is a gentle introduction to some wonderful native animals, and is written, illustrated and read by the amazingly talented and versatile, Elizabeth Honey!
