The Animals Noah Forgot - A.B. Paterson
This delightful collection of illustrated children's verse by two great Australians is now recognised as a classic.
It brings to life such characters as Weary Will the Wombat, Bristling Billy the Porcupine, Old Man Platypus, Benjamin Bandicoot, and many others.
The book was written for children, but like all classics, it reaches out to people of all ages.
It reveals Paterson's great love of the Australian bush coupled with his poetic sense and his innate humour, and includes the most charming verses ever written about Australian animals, perfectly matched by Norman Lindsay's light-hearted and appealing sketches.
According to Paterson's biographer Dr Clement Semmler "There has not been better poetry written before or since".
The Animals Noah Forgot was written in 1933 when Paterson and Lindsay were working for The Bulletin.
