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

I do highly recommend all books by this artist.
The story itself is thought provoking and the artistry is truly amazing and beautiful.
Each page encourages a child to ignite its imagination - from crocodiles on the beach, through aboriginal children playing in the rain forest to dinosaurs roaming beneath the canopy - and who is that mystical tribes person?
It ends with imagining the future impact of man.
Evidently this is not a single resource with which to explore the subject. Wider research will be required for that. I cannot, however, imagine a more stimulating entry in to the subject of conservation than this.
It surely deserves every award available.
Please please try these books - bet you'll be an addict too.
As described, hardback, good price, warned that delivery would be slow and it was but I knew it'd take a while to get here.
Very happy with product.
