'This delightful book for early childhood will enthrall young children and their older readers. The vibrant illustrations are accompanied by a soft lyrical text and together they introduce some of the diverse native and exotic animals to be found in Australian zoos. The ‘doleful lion’, the ‘pacing jaguar’, the ‘trumpeting elephant’ and the ‘cheeky cassowary’ are just some of the zoo animals that will tug at the heartstrings in this fabulous animal parade.'

'In this delightful Early Childhood board book, Tori-Jay Mordey's graphic illustrations bring the city to life in all its colourful glory. Mordey's bold and painterly art style celebrates the pace of the cityscape, whether it be her built environment of tall buildings and big signs, or her moving panorama of long buses. With a fresh and youthful eye, Tori-Jay captures the quirky gait of walking dogs and a jittery assembly of hungry pigeons as they share the streets with happy buskers and lots of people!
'In the City I See is also a gentle snapshot of how our Indigenous culture is reflected in our cities. It will become a valuable and loved addition to family book collections and libraries in rural, regional and urban areas.' (Publication summary)
'In the bush is a playful ensemble of Australian creatures, and an exciting illustrative debut from teenage artist, Kiara Honeychurch. Hailing from Tasmania, Kiara is inspired by the bush creatures she encounters in her rural home out of Hobart. With bold and sophisticated pops of colour, Kiara unleashes the beauty and character of each creature and reimagines its unpredictable tones in a changing light from sunrise to sunset. Kiara’s warm and creative understanding of the animals she sees is a lively showcase of her talent.'
