At 7 years of age our twins are both big book lovers. They love snuggling up on the couch with a thick novel but they also still love a beautiful picture book. Unfortunately many picture books have few words so the kids flick through in a flash. This sweet new read from Penguin Books Australia is the best of both worlds with gorgeous contemporary illustrations and plenty of text too:

Mitford at the Fashion Zoo

In Mitford at the Fashion Zoo (RRP $22.99) we get to take a look behind the scenes at big fashion magazine Cover, run by the super stylish Panda Summers. After considering 521 unsuccessful candidates for the roll of her assistant she calls in Mitford the Giraffe for an interview… During the one week trial Mitford meets a bunch of interesting designers, attends fabulous fashion shows and helps design eye-catching creations. Will the sniffly, sneezy and slightly clumsy giraffe manage to get the job?

In case you are wondering where the talented author and illustrator got his inspiration from, as the SVP Creative Director at Estée Lauder, founder of MAC Cosmetics and former employee at big media company Conde Nast Donald Robertson is quite the fashion expert and his quirky character Mitford is rapidly winning hearts all over the globe.

  3. A relative of mine found a dead kangaroo on an isolated country road. The stopped his car and discovered she had a tiny joey in her pouch. He took off and wrapped it in his thick jumper. When he got home he rang for advice of what to feed it – a special formula from a baby’s bottle. They got a permit to keep it as a pet until it started to grow too big for the size of yard they had. The local zoo accepted it. Over a year later they visited the zoo. His daughter squealed when she wsas excited. They found “her baby”. As soon as it heard her it came bounding over to the fence and rubbed its face on it. It had a tiny scar on it which healed quickly with treatment advised which was still visible if you knew where to look for it.
