it was amazing

Ottley's 'work for picture, word and music' garnered a huge degree of controversy when it was selected by the CBCA (Children's Book Council of Australia) as their 'Picture Book of the Year' in 2008. Certainly it's not a picture book for children - no talking possums or ABC's here. Instead it's a confronting work; with a postmodern, fractured narrative, densely layered allegory throughout, and accessible primarily to adults and critically informed older teenage readers.
