•backmatter that includes further information about Australia and the animals that live there
•Music and song lyrics to "Over in Australia" sung to the tune "Over in the Meadow".

Why shouldn't the meadow in the nursery rhyme "Over in the Meadow" be in Australia? Berkes recasts the song to introduce readers to counting, Australian animals, and the names of their young ("Over in Australia/ Looking like a kangaroo/ Lived a smaller wallaby/ And her little joeys two"). Dubin's lively collages feature textured papers, with pencil and crayon providing extra detail for the animals. Add musical notation for the song as well as detailed information about the 10 featured animals (plus 10 more hidden throughout the spreads), and it's a remarkably layered and entertaining trip to the land of Oz. Ages 3 8.
