I suspect that this list is meant to be Australian. Certainly at least Hairy Maclary is not. But then what would an Australian list be without something borrowed from New Zealand?

I find the inclusion of three Ruth Park titles interesting and possibly rather odd.
And still there's always a book you've never heard of- here it's Bamboozled for me.
I need to see if these titles are available in Poland :)
If I was in charge of the 1001 list, I'd put Where is the Green Sheep? on it. A big favorite.
I certainly hope that at least some of these books are available in Poland.
Deb- it's an instant classic isn't it? Perhaps my favourite Mem Fox title?
