Snuggle up, it's time for the Family Hour - a contemporary take on Australian fauna. Local artist Tai Snaith reinterprets the daily lives of 15 Australian native animals in her signature style with vibrant watercolour illustrations, a quirky sense of humour, references to mid-century modern design and curious, scientific facts.You'll see the perfectly-coiffed Gouldian finch family having breakfast at sunrise in their Marimekko-cushioned nest and the kangaroo mum going shopping with her joeys and there is still time for an afternoon nap with the koalas. Through the inclusion of secondary animals and cleverly hidden clocks in each scene, children are encouraged to immerse themselves in exploring the colourful pictures. Meanwhile, adults will delight in humorous references to design icons and a loving depiction of the mixed modern family. The Family Hour in Australia is a magical and educational exploration of our native animal families that will appeal to toddlers, grandparents and everyone in between.
