Colourful collages with an environmental theme from an award-winning artist.
"Each time the reader opens the book, there is something new and delightful to catch the eye." New Scientist When a young boy visits a tropical rain forest, he pretends it is a long time ago and that extinct and rare animals live in the forest, and aboriginal children play there. But how much longer will the rainforest remain, he wonders?
Perfect to use in the classroom for discussing Australian conservation and environment issues or to use as part of the visual literacy component.
A perfect gift to send overseas.
Also available in big book.
