With a style that is entirely and unmistakably Mulga, this fun and colourful story will delight readers of all ages with its fantastically quirky creatures.
Mulga’s Magical Musical Creatures is a rhyming picture book for children that answers the question where does music come from? It tells the story of a musician who finds musical inspiration in his dreams. While he’s sleeping he dreams of banjo-playing owls, jazz-fluting kangaroos, trumpeting elephants and whistling toucans, and when he wakes up he’s inspired to write a song.
