T is for Tuatara - Jo van Dam
Kiwi author Jo van Dam's new book T is for Tuatara: Amazing animals from A to Z is a treat for new and existing fans of her quirky rhymes and catchy ditties. Packed full of equally quirky animal characters, the book is a survey of some of the world's more unusual animals - from aardvark to zebus - all told in rhyme. New Zealand favourites - kiwi, tuatara and weta feature in the poems, alongside more exotic species such as gharial and numbats. A non-fiction section at the end, with information about the featured animals and tips for writing poetry, will ensure the book is popular with teachers, while offering more for enquiring children.
