AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This is a story of a plastic bag and a bird - a cautionary tale about taking care of our environment as well as being a wonderful showcase of some of the famous sights of Sydney. 'One day, a long time ago when I lived in Kirribilli, Sydney, I packed a lunch and set out to walk to the Botanic Gardens ...I crossed the harbour bridge then climbed down to Circular Quay. I walked beside the sea wall, past the Opera House until I reached the Botanic Gardens. And this is what I saw.''  (Publication summary)

Works about this Work

[Review] A Bag and A Bird Kevin Steinberger , 2017 single work review
— Appears in: Magpies : Talking About Books for Children , September vol. 32 no. 4 2017; (p. 31)

— Review of A Bag and a Bird Pamela Allen , 2017 single work picture book

'Pamela Allen should be declared a 'national treasure'. It is almost forty years since her first picture book Mr Archimides' Bath was published to much acclaim. Since then very few Australian and New Zealand children would not have experienced the delight of her picture books. The magic continues, as invitingly and as assured as ever with book number forty-eight: A Bag and A Bird. Just a glance at it's cover with that characteristic high definition pen and wash art sharply focused against white space would have young familiar readers enthusiastically identify it as a Pamela Allen book.'
