    Leo, age 4. I liked this book because it was funny and the bunyip was silly.

  2. Alfred Enock-Brown says:

    I thought this book was a bit strange and also a bit sad when the bunyip was lonely, but I liked it when he found another one at the end.

  3. eroberts says:

    I like the bunyip because he was funny and strange. I like that the bunyip found a friend. I think the other animals were pretty mean, and the man thought that bunyips didn’t even exist. In fact there were two, the bunyip and his friend.

  4. aroberts says:

    I’m glad the bunyip found a friend. The other animals were mean.

  7. Oscar Freeman says:

    I liked this book a lot. I like all the animals in this book. I want to read it again!

  8. Caleb Ng Hong Ti says:

    Difficult to understand. What is a bunyip? Is there really such a creature?

  9. Wilfred Riley says:

    i felt sorry for the bunyip when the animals laughed at him. he found a friend at the end.

  10. Henry Roberts says:

    I liked it when the bunyip found a place where no one was looking at him and he could be as handsome as he liked. I did not like when everyone said bunyips looked horrible because they weren’t being very kind to him. I liked the pictures. I liked that they looked Australian.

    This book is like no other. And that’s why it’s so brilliant.

  12. Mr Milne says:

    A mysterious creature called a bunyip clambers out of a creek in the Australian outback and asks ‘What am I?’ No-one the bunyip encounters is especially helpful or friendly and so it sets off across country, perhaps to look for some answers. The book is much loved in Australia (the bunyip is a creature from Aborigonal mythology) and one Australian critic wrote that the book’s illustrations capture the “subdued colours and twilight qualities of the Australian landscape”. I can’t help wondering what a bunyip might sound like and so it’s very interesting to listen to Ms Lezemeta’s audio recording of the book!
