In the Bush I See is a playful ensemble of Australian creatures, and an exciting illustrative debut from teenage artist, Kiara Honeychurch. Hailing from Tasmania, Kiara is inspired by the bush creatures she encounters in her rural home out of Hobart. With bold and sophisticated pops of colour, Kiara unleashes the beauty and character of each creature and reimagines its unpredictable tones in a changing light from sunrise to sunset. Kiara's warm and creative understanding of the animals she sees is a lively showcase of her talent. This board book for Early Childhood will capture the hearts of young readers and readers young at heart.
Fourth release of the ‘Young Art’ Board Book series that showcases young Indigenous artists.
