About the Story

Little Iggy doesn’t want to leave the house, but Grandad insists – they always have fun together.

What follows is a wonderful journey in the great Australian outdoors with singing birds, wallaby surprises, secret caterpillar messages and oodles of grandad humour.

A Walk in the Bush by author/illustrator Gwyn Perkins is a story about the wonders of nature, the funny side of life and spending time with the ones we love. Grandad and Iggy delight in the sights, sounds and smells they encounter on their walk and we learn about some fascinating aspects of the flora and fauna they come across.

A true celebration of the Australian bush, children will love this funny story with its richly detailed cartoon-style illustrations, and wonderful reading by actor Lyall Brooks.
