The Australian desert: for thousands of years the only changes here were made by the wind, the willy-willies and sometimes the rain. Then a hundred years ago people from Europe settled in the desert and planted seeds from the other side of the world.

The Story of Rosy Dock is the story of one of the settlers who followed them, and her garden in the wilderness, a garden that is beautiful - but with an unexpected flowering.

About the Author

Jeannie Baker is the author and illustrator of a number of children's picture books, including the award-winning Where the Forest Meets the Sea and the critically acclaimed dual language picture book Mirror. Her characteristic use of mixed media to create detailed and elaborate collages is stunning and unique. Originally from the UK, Jeannie lives in Australia.

Industry Reviews

Baker's riveting collages dazzle the eyes and reward close examination. * Kirkus Reviews *
As in her previous picture books, Baker (Window; Where the Forest Meets the Sea) uses her exceptional ""collage constructions,"" crisply photographed here, to make an environmental statement. * Publishers Weekly *
