Learning to read and count has never been so much fun!

From ‘1 wonderful wombat’ to ‘21 baby crocs’, this is not just another counting book. It has lyrical prose to challenge the developing reader, and Heath McKenzie’s trademark funky Aussie animals.


Heath McKenzie is a much-loved and highly successful Melbourne-based children’s book illustrator whose work ranges from early childhood picture books to YA novel covers. The funniest illustrator not on the stand-up circuit, and much in demand for his school appearances, Heath learnt the alphabet a little while ago and can still remember it all to this day


The Number One Aussie Counting Book is bright, colourful, zany. Young children will enjoy the counting and older children will enjoy reading the descriptions. All will enjoy the antics on each opening. Recommended for pre- and early school age children. Would also be a great gift to send overseas.
