This is a great read for people of all ages. Witty, light hearted, descriptive writing. My three year old grandson knows some pages off by heart. It is a beautifully illustrated book.
This is our Sydney, the brightest and best of it, North to the south to the east and the west of it. Bats and cicadas, lawn bowls and the zoo, This is our town. Let us share it with you.
