Under the Southern Cross

From the bestselling and award-winning creator of A is for Australia and A is for Australian Animals comes a new narrative nonfiction picture book, which explores Australia after dark.

Night-time in Australia, animals are waking, people are exploring, discoveries are being made – under the Southern Cross.

What makes ribbons of colour swirl in the sky? What are the spooky balls of light that bounce across the outback? What animal lays eggs that look like squishy ping-pong balls? Where can you watch a movie with bats circling overhead?

Discover the answers to these questions and more in this factastic picture book tour of Australia after dark.
