What's Dingo About

Publisher Summary

Poetic language and glorious illustrations follow a dingo from the comfort of her pack into the darkening landscape in search of food for her family. Can you see her? There -- deep in the stretching shadows -- a dingo. Her pointed ears twitch. Her tawny eyes flash in the low-slung sun. Dingo leaves her sleeping pups with her mate and lifts her head to smell the air. Dusk is a busy time -- the time for hunting. Softly and fleetly she runs through the forest, past a possum, a wombat, and kangaroos in the gully below. Now she climbs to the highest point and sniffs again, locating the scent of rabbits in the wind. Interspersed with text offering facts for curious readers, Dingo is a lyrical foray into the life of these fascinating wild dogs.
