A stunning interactive environmental picture book illustrating the unique ecosystems of North Queensland. Each illustration has been exquisitely created by hand painting on silk and each contains 10 representative creatures. Nine ecosystems are explored with the climax bringing together all ecosystems in a rarely attempted multiple gatefold page. The World That We Want brings to centre stage the rare beauty and fragile environment of North Queensland and its native inhabitants of this great land for all to share.

About the Author

Author/Illustrator Kim Michelle Toft has been drawing since she was four years old. She has been an art teacher and a graphic designer, and she is now a full-time silk artist. She lives in Empire Vale, Australia, with her daughter, Casey.

Industry Reviews

"As viewers move from flying pelican to gliding barracuda, Toft creates ever-widening perspectives to reveal how various ecosystems relate to one another... Of course, the underlying message is how easily the intertwined ecosystems can unravel... The arresting, brilliantly hued illustrations were drawn and painted on silk." - School Library Journal
