An award winning poetic celebration and exploration of nature, people and imagination in Far North Queensland.
Encourages children and families everywhere to hunt for their own nature-based or urban poems.
“Luminous and jubilant, Magic Fish Dreaming explores an imaginative world of rainforest and cassowary, the flicker of geckos and the roll of quolls. Whimsical poems and exquisite images invite readers to venture into vibrant, magical places, rich with stories and legends.
Like the work of Michael Rosen and Shirley Hughes, images and words combine to evoke the textures and spirit of landscapes. Here, though, it is a vibrant Australian world readers discover, one alive with the colour and energy of nature and many cultures.”
Felicity Plunkett, Poet and Poetry Editor for University of Queensland Press
