También, les presenta los días de la semana mientras viajan a siete diferentes hábitats para conocer a los felines grandes, y de regreso a casa para comparar y contrastar el comportamiento de los gatos domésticos con los que son sus parientes.

La rata canguro (tarkawara) salta sobre la arena del desierto en lugar del kookaburra sentado en el árbol del chicle. Y las teteras no son las únicas cosas que son pequeñas y corpulentas -mira nada más los colmillos y al hocico del jabalí. Prepárate para excavar con las suricatas, volar con los murciélagos y ¡sisear con los monstruos de gila! Ya sea cantado o leído en voz alta, en lo profundo del desierto hace que el aprendizaje sobre los desiertos sea todo menos seco.
