Eye to eye

Arguably Australia’s best known picture book creator on an international scale. In his latest wonder-filled book readers encounter some of the world’s most intriguing creatures through richly detailed realistic illustrations. In an amazing journey of the imagination, the protagonist soars high in the sky and dives deep into the ocean, climbs tall trees or scrambles in the leaf litter, for close up meetings with these animals, many of which are pre-empted in the cover illustration. A single eye predicts the animal on the following page. The thrill is in the mesmerising illustration that illuminates the page. A wonder-filled experience for young and old.
