Customer reviews

By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008 3

"This is a fabulous story and beautifully drawn too. Our daughter really loves the look of the book, and often recreates scenes from it in our backyard or at the beach. Alison Lester has written some Aussie classics, and this one is right up there."
