The tale of two unlikely mates embark on an epic adventure around the Australian countryside.
Wally, the sausage dog crossed with a poodle and Felix the frog believe
there is more to see than their own backyard, so they embark on an
adventure of a lifetime. The story has a lot of my family as characters, eg
Robyn the Rosella, Brian the Bull, Kay the Kookaburra and John, the
jolly jumbuck, etc. Each character has their own rhyming story,
beautifully illustrated and easy to read and a fun way to learn about
Australian animals and the countryside.
"There once was a frog who lived in a log, down by a watery creek. Along came a dog, who saw the frog's log and decided that he'd take a peek. But he wasn't aware that the frog was in there, when his nose blocked out the light. When the lights went out, the frog screamed out and gave the dog a really bad fright. Don't be a sook, lets take a look, and see what plugged up my hole, was it a possum, a wombat, a shoe, someone's hat, a wallaby or maybe a mole. Then he saw the long body, and legs that looked "ploddy" and a tail that looked like a noodle. So he had to ask of its type, the dog replied with my hype, "I'm a sausage dog crossed with a poodle!"
