A unique Pacific flavour. Could be used as inspiration for children’s own art works

Won the Russell Clark Award in the 2002 LIANZA Children’s Book Awards


Each reflects an aspect of the Pacific - landscape, nature or “millions of stars”. Some are presented in dual language versions, while others use language of the Pacific Islands within them

These are original poems/lullabies from people living on the islands. My 7 year old loves it

Worth having just for the fabulous artwork

Really gorgeous. Perfect for nap/bedtime with baby. My 2yrs old son enjoys looking through the illustrations

Charming, tranquil collection of poetry. While music is not included, the verse is so strong I can imagine the rhythm supporting the structure

Full of the natural rhythms, images & metaphors of our Pacific world

Soft bound
32 pages
28 x 21 cm

Good condition. Scuff mark on last page
