's review

it was amazing

This is one of those books that simply cannot be given to Lifeline when the bookshelves start to collapse under the weight. It's one that will be kept for grandchildren, or perhaps even adult children will reach for it again. It brings back warm memories of bedtime cuddles and stories. The collage illustrations are beautiful, in a classic example of 'show don't tell.' They show the passage of time, and how development changes a rural landscape from pristine beauty to suburbia. This exquisite book is powerful yet subtle. Jennie Baker needs no words.
When did I read it? Let's see, when my boys were young. Fifteen, twenty years ago? I know they loved it as I did. And they have a strong feel for the environment, which is the message intended.
