'A woman walks, baby strapped to her chest, through the streets of Fitzroy and Carlton. As she walks, she notices the way the skyline edges upward, nudged by the cranes of developers. And she notices the history of this place, ever-present, despite those cranes. She begins to know the people here — the young couple down the road, the glorious thirteen-year-old from the housing commission flats, and Alan, the eighty-three-year-old man who stands every day, shirtless, watering the garden of the house he was born in.'

'What a fabulous morning to go to the market. That busker is dressed as a clown! And there's fruit and a baker and people on bikes. And, Annabelle, please put that down. What happens when a bunch of curious kids explore the market? Glorious mayhem! Delicious chaos! (And the adult in charge might need a strong coffee or a good lie down.) A boisterous family picture book full of warmth, humour and gentle mischief for 2-5-year-olds' (Publication summary)
