In an innovative flip-book format, See Hear invites us to open our eyes and ears to the everyday magic around us! This innovative flip-format picture book is a sequel to the best-selling Crystal Kite 2017 winner and CBCA Notable Book for 2017, Smile Cry. Piglet, Bunny and Cat return in a charming, whimsical sensory adventure that encourages kids to explore the multitude of ways that they can engage with the world around them, particularly via the senses of sight and sound. From watching 'squiggly rain' on a window to pointing out 'heavenly horses' in the clouds, from hearing 'buzzing blossoms' as bees collect pollen and nectar to 'hot pan sizzles' as a favourite meal is prepared, See Hear invites us to open our eyes and ears to the everyday magic that surrounds us. Younger kids will respond to the soft whimsical illustrations, while older readers will enjoy the onomatopoeic wordplay. Perfect for ages 3 and upwards, this is a book that will captivate children and parents alike.

Review quote

"...innovative flip-format book." * Ladies In Racing * "...readers will get the most out of this book (a lovely list of sounds and sights, essentially) by using it as a starting point to explore the world around them, and more specifically, the endless ways and words that can be used to describe it." * Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators * "Small children will love getting halfway through this whimsical picture book and being able to "flip" it around to read a new story ... Alliterations such as the "flying feathers" and "buzzing blossoms" and the onomatopoeic narrative really makes this tale of Piglet, Bunny and Cat come to life." * The Daily Telegraph * "From watching `squiggly rain' as it hits the window or hearing `buzzing blossoms' as bees collect pollen and nectar I really enjoyed how this story explores all the little, everyday wonderful things around us (that maybe we take for granted). It was nice to talk about this with my kids and ask them things they hear, or see when they're exploring their surroundings." * Early Childhood Book Reviews *
