Little Bilby's Aussie Easter Egg Hunt

Near bush and scrub and oceanfront, they tiptoe on their Easter hunt . . .

A group of baby bilbies are on an Easter egg hunt. They find all kinds of eggs - a kookaburra's egg, a turtle's egg, a cassowary's egg - before the little bilbies finally find what they've been looking for: Easter eggs to share with all their friends.

This colourfully illustrated picture book showcases the diversity of Australia's egg-laying animals. Each spread reveals an egg in its natural environment and asks the question 'Whose egg could this be?'. After turning the page, the egg is matched with the animal it belongs to.
