The ABC Bunyip series of Australian kids picture books by Kathy Littlemore.

Multi Layered and Multi Fasceted

Like peeling an onion, the ABC Bunyip books have many layers, but none of the tears. They are written to a brand new recipe called “EMPOWER” with all the sparkle of diamonds.


E for our precious environment because it matters.

M for mates which is Aussie for friends.

P for previously read for familiarity and confidence.

O for something Ozzie/Aussie to introduce Aussie culture.

W for waggish, naughty behaviour.

E for emotions because we all feel them.

R for repetition because it is fun.

Blend this unique book formula with a splash of humour and good old fashioned fun and watch the magic happen as readers fast track their dream lives.

Australia’s favourite monster, ABC Bunyip knows just how special “home” is.

He shares his story about how he nearly lost his home and how anxious and worried he was when he thought he might have to live somewhere else.

He has made it his mission to empower kids lives by giving you the keys to Aussie culture, so you can feel “at home” once more and get on with living an amazing Aussie life.
