Description

Beautiful collage illustrations take the reader on an extraordinary visual journey to a primeval wilderness, which like so many others is now threatened.

My father says there has been a forest here for over a hundred million years, Jeannie Baker's young protagonist tells us, and we follow him on a visit to this tropical rain forest.

We walk with him among the ancient trees as he pretends it is a time long ago, when animals that are now extinct or rare lived in the forest and aboriginal children played there. But for how much longer will the forest still be there, he wonders?

Don't miss this exquisitely wrought work with a simple, profound message (Publishers Weekly).
