The Rabbit-Hole Golf Course
Ella Mulvey and Karen Briggs
Allen & Unwin
In the big old ute, on the long red road, in the desert of my home, we all set off for the rabbit-hole golf course. It’s the best place around here to find rabbits. We sit by the holes, we dig, we wait . . . Thump tick, thump tick, thump tick. Where are all the rabbits? A warm and funny Australian story.
Uniquely Australian children’s books do not often cross my desk, in fact I cannot think of any others that are so Australian in language and setting…there are references to damper, utes, billy tea, wattle trees, maku and honey ants (bush tucker). This is a must purchase for the school and home libraries.
