Thanks to Tania McCartney for her fabulous book review. Here is just a small part of it but you can read the entire article here.
Prefaced with maps to give readers some orientation, each chapter of Aussie Legends is a new adventure. Told in true and very Aussie rollicking rhyme, the educational nature of this book takes on an updated and rhythmic pace that children will enjoy and adults will enjoy reading out loud.
Illustrations by Tracey Gibbs are lustrous in colour and emotion – inked in a slightly abstract style – almost a modern Picasso/Frida Kahlo blend. Her striking wattle wallpaper patterns, scrumptious shadowing and choice of colour give this book the richness its content deserves.
