Benny Bungarra comes to the rescue when Olive Python’s head is stuck in a plastic bottle, Colin Crow’s beak is entangled in a fishing line, and Kathy Kangaroo’s paw has glass in it!
Benny Bungarra’s Big Bush Clean-Up is an environmental tale for Early Childhood and Lower Primary readers showing how animals are affected by rubbish left in their habitat by humans. Ambelin Kwaymullina’s illustrations are an explosion of colour and cleverly show the perils faced by our native animals.
When the animals work as a team to come up with ways to look after the bush, they decide to ask the humans to REDUCE, RECYCLE and use RUBBISH BINS. But it is Benny Bungarra who has the bright idea of a BIG BUSH CLEAN-UP so the animals can also help look after the bush.
'Mother-and-daughter duo Sally Morgan and Ambelin Kwaymullina have teamed up again to create another positive and vibrant picture book, this time in service of their shared passion for our natural world...Kwaymullina’s gorgeous, colourful art is always a joy, no matter your age.' — Bronte Coates, Books+Publishing
