Award winning author-illustrator Jeanie Baker examines the consequences of introducing non-native flora and fauna into the environment.

As in her previous picture books, Jeannie Baker ("Window"; "Where the Forest Meets the Sea") uses her exceptional collage constructions, crisply photographed here, to make an environmental statement.

  • Baker's book "Belonging" was the Winner of the 2005 Wilderness Society Award for Children's Literature, Picture Book category. A 2005 Notable Book by the American Library Association.
About The Author

Since 1972, Jeannie Baker has been making her collages, many of which are designed to illustrate picture books, but stand individually as works of art. Her collages are created from many rich textures, including earth, knitted wool and feathers, which, combined with more usual artists materials, achieve a wonderful three dimensional illusion. Internationally renowned, her work has garnered critical and public acclaim in Australia and abroad. Jeannie was born in England but has lived in Sydney for many years.
