CBCA's Notable Children's Picture Book 2012

Book Description

The rain stopped, but the wall of water surged into the river.
Hour by hour the river rose. In some places water only
nibbled at the banks, but in others it burst across the river
bends ... up into the streets.

It sounded like a helicopter.
It sounded like a flood.

Inspired by the Queensland floods, Flood is a moving and sensitive story of a natural disaster as seen through the honest eyes of a cattle dog that has been separated from his family.

The floodwater mercilessly rips through the towns, and finally recedes, leaving a devastating widespread path of destruction. But from the ruins, courage and kindness emerge.

A tiny tugboat heroically guides a wayward boardwalk out to sea; rescuers pluck friends and strangers from the dangerous waters; communities gather, providing aid, shelter, comfort and — above all — hope.
