Two seals are perched on a rock. When others need shelter, do they share it? Room on Our Rock celebrates the truth that there are two sides to every story. This clever picture book has one story that can be read two different ways.

When read from front to back, the seals believe there is definitely no room on their rock for others. But when the book is read from back to front, the seals welcome others to shelter on their rock. A heartwarming story about sharing and compassion.

A beautiful book


What an amazing book. Bought tears to my eyes



What a great book to get from this mob.


Read it from front to back to front. Love the storyline.



Amazingly written


This is an amazing book. To be enjoyed from Kinder age upwards. Such a talented writer with such a powerful message.

Intriguing, with a beautiful message


I read this with several primary-aged student classes. They thought it was interesting 'and a bit strange' when read from front to Brack, but when we read it from back to front (it's intended that the reader reads it both ways) they ended up being very engaged and loved it. They loved the message of inclusion, too, and picked up on it themselves.

Great story to start discussions


This is a beautifully illustrated story and a great concept to get kids and adults alike to see things from a different perspective. Read it through normally from the first page to last, now read it through from the last page to first to see the situation from the other point of view.

I would not recommend this book


Very disappointing and didn't get how you are supposed to read from front and then reverse
