Saltie Mumma

Saltie Mumma

Way up north in the Territory,
scary creatures swim in the rivers and the sea.
BIG enough, FIERCE enough to even eat me!
Saltie Mumma is lurking, watchful, hungry and cranky,
but why is she so busy and what is she protecting?

Saltie Mumma is the latest book by Sandra Kendell, who is well known for her books on Australian animals and our environment. Sandra’s style is to blend fictional story telling with added non-fiction information to inspire readers to learn something new and look for more information to expand their knowledge.
