A glorious collection of stories, poems and pictures from thirty favourite storytellers: Nick Bland, Karen Briggs, Kevin Burgemeestre, Michael Camilleri, Jackie French, Jane Godwin, Bob Graham, Jacqui Grantford, Mark Greenwood, Ann James, Danny Katz, Frane Lessac, Alison Lester, Chris McKimmie, Doug McLeod, Glenda Millard, Stephen Michael King, Tohby Riddle, Victoria Rohan, Judith Rossell, Paul Seden, Craig Smith, Shaun Tan, Jane Tanner, Karen Tayleur, Mitch Vane, Julie Vivas, Anna Walker, Bruce Whatley, Margaret Wild
What a delightful collection of short stories, poems, rhymes and beautiful illustrations. This is a fantastic book to share with the young children in your life (or for you to take a moment, sit, be and enjoy; relax and let your imagination roam free). This hardback edition is beautifully presented – colourful imaginative illustrations, enchanting prose and this edition includes a bonus CD featuring a special compilation of Hush music compositions – which I am listening to as I write this review – it is very very relaxing.
I think a colouring- in book (for adult and children to share) based on this collection should be the next thing on the list 🙂
This is an extract from ‘I am the Small Green Pea’ by Stephen Michael King and Glenda Millard from The Hush Treasure Book, published by Allen & Unwin, it is my favourite in this collection.
“I am the small green pea
you are the tender pod
I am the diving kite
you are the bow-tied tail
I am the drifting boat
you are the quiet deep
