Little Barry Bilby Had A Fly Upon His Nose by Colin Buchanan
Published by Scholastic Australia
We of course all know Little Peter Rabbit, and that pesky fly upon his nose. Barry Bilby is the fun Aussie version, with characters like Peter Possum, Sid Echidna, Wendy Wombat and Gaz The Goanna.
The bizzy buzzy bush bugs will not leave this motley crew of animals alone, and they all go tumbling down the gully, gonna jump in the creek. Of course, with such a splash, all the bizzy buzzy bush bugs fly away.
I read this with my 4 year old who loves the Peter Rabbit song, so this was a hit. Great for ages 3-6.
Another great rendition on a classic, with beautiful water colour illustrations depicting our marvellous Australian animals. There is also an accompanying CD sung by Colin, just to ensure you get that tune stuck in your head for the rest of the week.
