Top to Bottom Down UnderBook - 2005
Explore the diverse and unique creatures, plants, and landscapes of north and south Australia as the authors go on a journey "down under" to see wildlife in their natural habitat, study plants, and check out the lay of land.
Ted and Betsy Lewin's adventures take them from the northernmost tip of Australia to the southernmost tip. At the top, they interrupt a python's mealtime, encounter a ferocious pack of dingoes, and come face-to-face with a crocodile. Down at the bottom, they dine with rude kangaroos, meet their first platypus, and confront an ill-tempered sea lion!
The vivid colors, close-up paintings, and rich landscapes rendered in the Lewins' distinct watercolor styles, combined with action-packed narrative, will make you want to pack your bags and visit the land down under!
Ted and Betsy Lewin share their adventures while traveling in northern and southern Australia, describing the wildlife and landscapes they encounter.
