Endangered species meet mixed modern families and mid-century modern design.

Australian author and illustrator Tai Snaith reinterprets the daily lives of 15 Australian native animals in her signature style with vibrant watercolour illustrations, a quirky sense of humour, referencing mid-century modern design and curious scientific facts.

You'll see the perfectly coiffed Gouldian finch family having breakfast at sunrise in their Marimekko-cushioned nest and the kangaroo mum going shopping with her joeys with time for a nap!

Also includes scientifically accurate family facts glossary and design icons such as Featherstone chairs.
