This is Australia

Australian swimmers

The seventeenth book is the series has Sasek visiting a land down under. It is characteristic of the later books in the series in that the colours are slightly duller, there are fewer pictures of people, and more pictures of places.

Still it is a solid tour of a big, fascinating country and well worth adding to the collection.

Sasek swings Down Under, arriving not in chains, as the first British colonists did, but in a Qantas big bird which - unlike the Australian penguin and emu - flies very well indeed.

This is Australia sleeve notes.
