Age range 3 to 8 First published in 2015, this title now has a new cover and the format has been increased to 200 x 230 mm. Young children will be captivated by the bright colours and Australian animals which bring to life this entertaining tale of a young emu who has lost his mob and sets out to find it. He asks the animals he encounters along the way if they `have seen his mob?' The kangaroo, lizard, owl, cassowary and others provide directions in their own, often confusing, way, until finally the youngster catches up with his mob. In iconic Australian style, My Lost Mob combines highly textured and bold illustrations of Australian animals and varied landscapes in a simple, classical format that will appeal to younger readers and all that are young at heart. A gem of a book that will charm its way onto bookshelves.
