A Walk in the Bush
by Gwyn Perkins
Little Iggy doesn’t want to leave the house, but Grandad insists – they always have fun together.
What follows is a wonderful journey in the great Australian outdoors with singing birds, wallaby surprises, secret caterpillar messages and oodles of grandad humour.
Here is a story about the wonders of nature, the funny side of life and spending time with the ones we love.
From an original and exciting new talent comes A Walk in the Bush, proudly the first picture book from Affirm Press.
