The Hush Treasure Book

Various Australian authors and illustrators
Allen & Unwin
ISBN: 9781760112790
RRP: $29.99

Commissioned by the Hush Foundation which produces healing music for use in children’s hospitals, this collection contains the writing and illustration of 31 talented contributors from Australian children’s literature. They are shown in a photo-gallery at the end of the book. There’s something to suit every taste: stories, poems, carton strips, even a maze; illustrations in every technique and style you could imagine, from full page pictures to exquisite vignettes. It’s the kind of book where you don’t have to read every story, certainly not in one sitting or in order; it’s designed to be dipped into and shared. Eclectic and entertaining.
