Vacen Taylor‘s review

Mar 08, 2017

Magic Fish Dreaming is one of those books destined for parents who understand the importance of reading a book to their children, a book that discovers magic in the country and its creatures. The words are joyful and magical. The illustrations are lovable, alive with shape, imagery and spirit.

This book is filled with poems that draw you into the peacefulness of the Australian bush. Poems that celebrate the creatures like Geckos’ Dance, Beyond Caterpillar Days, Tawny and Wishing for a Fish invite readers on a rhythmic journey with images to help them along the way.

Poems that feature the power of our environment like Storm Dancers and Lost at Sea gather readers up and ask them to explore the heart of far north Queensland.

This is a book for everyone, to read quietly under a tree or to snuggle on the side of the bed and read aloud to the ones they love. It will certainly enrich the lives of those who read it.
