Australia has so many colourful characters, spectacular landscapes, strange creatures and a unique vocabulary to inspire a child’s imagination. Yet we feed our children a literary diet of fairytales, knights, castle, princesses, peasants, cowboys and Indians. Sadly, every time Aussie kids want to enter the world of their imagination they must travel overseas to do so.
Australian MythoCreatology features home-grown heroes and unique creatures that can only be found down-under. MythoCreatology also lifts the lid on this country’s mysterious world by providing a comprehensive study of its magical creatures; probing their strengths, weaknesses and their uncanny ability to exist undetected.
This series also features Tattle’s Wag-Tales, true-blue Aussie yarns with a bit of bush magic and the old slang (revisited). These stories are designed as a series of tales that have iconic Aussies including shearers, swagmen, jillaroos and jackaroos, diggers and drovers all matching wits against a host of magical creatures unlike anything else in the world.
