Overview

Age range 3+ Summer is here. Put your school shoes away, The long, lazy days can begin. Mangoes and magpies, municipal pools... Take a deep breath and dive in. The bestselling creators of Alphabetical Sydney and Numerical Street are back with their new picture book, Summer Time - a stunning tribute to an Australian summer. 'Summer Time, Hilary Bell and Antonia Pesenti's third picture book collaboration, explores ideas of time within the grand nostalgic mythology of Australian summer...The rhyming verse is rich and evocative, making good use of both rhythm and imagery...Pesenti's pleasing collage-style illustrations complement Bell's linguistic portraits; a colour palette both bright and gentle evokes the harsh Australian light and the haze of memory.' - Books + Publishing Teachers' Notes available here
