Noni the Pony Rescues a Joey by Alison Lester
Alison Lester is truly a legend; time and time again she delivers perfect picture books. Her illustrations are delightful, her text rhymes seamlessly and her word choices never feel forced. Noni the Pony’s third adventure is no exception. While out and about, Noni, along with Coco the cat and Dave the dog, meet a lost baby wallaby. As they try to re-unite little joey and family they meet many Australian critters along the way. It’s a wonderful picture book that is great for reading aloud.
Children will be delighted by all the featured animals and everyone will have fun joining the ladies (cows) next door in a celebratory dance when all ends well! It’s also a great introduction to some of Australia’s wildlife so will make a really nice gift for little ones overseas.
