Dance, Bilby, dance

Trish Oktober
Ford Street Publishing
ISBN: 9781925272130
RRP: $22.95 HC and $14.95 PB

A cute bilby wishes he could dance because then, other magical things would happen, including eventually a dancing bunyip. The text is straightforward, in short sections that caption each page. Colourful illustrations dance and prance around entertaining the reader. Trish Oktober is noted for a hyper-realistic style but here she has lent a comical touch which enchants her images into a child’s playful imagination.
