SHORTLISTED – 2018 Speech Pathology Australia's Book of the Year (Birth to Three Years category)
In this delightful Early Childhood board book, Tori-Jay Mordey's graphic illustrations bring the city to life in all its colourful glory. Mordey's bold and painterly art style celebrates the pace of the cityscape, whether it be her built environment of tall buildings and big signs, or her moving panorama of long buses. With a fresh and youthful eye, Tori-Jay captures the quirky gait of walking dogs and a jittery assembly of hungry pigeons as they share the streets with happy buskers and lots of people!
In the City I See is also a gentle snapshot of how our Indigenous culture is reflected in our cities. It will become a valuable and loved addition to family book collections and libraries in rural, regional and urban areas.
Third release of the ‘Young Art’ Board Book series that showcases young Indigenous artists.
Illustrated by Tori-Jay Mordey
Tori-Jay Mordey was born on Thursday Island in the Torres Strait and is descended from the Meriam and Maluyigal clans. She is inspired by contemporary artists and holds a Bachelor of Contemporary Australian Indigenous Art from Griffith University in Brisbane.
