Wonderful Life by Helen Ward (2007) or Snutt the lft or A Small but Significant Chapter in the Life of the Universe.

This gorgeously illustrated picture book is the story of an Ift, a small bilby-like creature, by the name of Snutt. Snutt wants to explore the universe and finds a wonderful new planet full of amazing plants and animals but finds himself lonely because he has no-one to share them with. Then he meets a fellow explorer from another far off world and they admire the new planet together.

The text is full of words that are great fun to read aloud- "euphoric florifors and sticky-footed flewfimols". I fell in love with the beautiful pictures and the simple, whimsical story.

In short, this book is wonderful "like the universe and everything in it."

You can find it at the Book Depository
