In this prize-winning tale, a young Australian boy's father takes him by boat to a tropical rainforest. The boy explores, musing about the nature of the forest, its history and future until it's time to go eat the fish his father has caught and cooked.
Stunningly illustrated with Baker's gorgeously colourful and textured collages, and featuring a rainforest modelled on a real wilderness in North Queensland, Where the Forest Meets the Sea is sure to stimulate thought and debate, and encourage even the youngest reader to develop an interest in the environment. Particularly good for the classroom. (Ages 4 to 8)--Lisa Gee
