Two diverse cultures, countries and families are linked with warmth and charm in this two-in-one picture book.

This innovative picture book comprises two stories designed to be read simultaneously – one from the left, the other from the right. Page by page, we experience a day in the lives of two boys and their families. An Australian family, whose way of life strikes a familiar chord, and a family from a far away country with a way of life that differs more than one can imagine. As we read we discover the simple truth that despite these differences we are all the same. We are the mirror of each other.
  • Innovative dual-book format. Effectively communicates shared experiences and values, despite geographical and cultural differnences
  • The narrative is conveyed wordlessly, with a short introduction and author’s note in both English and Arabic
About The Author

Jeannie Baker was born in England where she finished Art College before moving to Australia. She is the author-artist of a number of distinguished picture books including Where the Forest Meets the Sea, a Boston Globe-Horn Honour Book, and the recipient of an IBBY Honor Award. Another of her picture books, Window, was short-listed for the Kate Greenaway Medal in Great Britain and won the Children’s Book Council of Australia Picture Book of the Year Award. Her characteristic use of mixed media to create detailed and elaborate collages is stunning and unique. Where the Forest Meets the Sea and The Story of Rosy Dock have also been made into animated films, both directed by Jeannie.
