Somewhere in Australia, in a land of scorching sun,
lived a mother kangaroo and her little joey one.
'Hop,' said the mother. 'I hop,' said the one,
as they hopped over land scorched by the hot sun.

Join the little joey and many more familiar animals in this glorious Australian counting book based on the classic rhyme 'Over in the Meadow'.

Now in board book format — perfect for little hands!

Before I started writing children’s books, I was a biology lecturer at Curtin University of Technology in Perth, Western Australia, where I also researched Australian Aboriginal medicinal plants. I later moved to the United States to work as a research scientist at the Chicago Botanic Garden. It was there I combined my love for teaching and writing with conservation. This is a passion I have continued to pursue upon returning to Australia with my little family. My focus now is to help educate young people about the importance of saving the environment through teaching and by writing children’s books.
