Great book for kids


A great reader to engage my children in reading.

A trip around Australia in one read


This book comes out time and time again, my kids love looking at the pictures and talking about and making plans to see and experience some of the places and things in this story. We also sent a copy to friends in UK who have done some traveling in Oz and they loved reminiscing on their travels with their kids.

Another excellent book by Alison Lester. My 7 year old loves this book. It is a great fictional introduction to the geography of Australia.



An Australian classic


Love, love, love Alison Lester's books! She has a beautiful, insightful view of life through a child's eyes, and never fails to captivate readers young and old. A favourite in our bookshelf.

Great Australian book


I bought this book for my 2 year old but realised when i got it that it was too advanced to read to her, however she does like the pictures and they are of everyday items which she finds interesting. The book will grow with her which is fine by me!



Lovely book


My 3 year-old daughter who was born in Brisbane (we returned to the UK when she was 9 months) loves this book. We use it to remind her of her birthplace and plan our return visits. A lovely book.
