Heading 1

           Billabong Dance
The sign says, "Everyone Welcome", but when Dingo arrives at the Billabong Dance the other animals do their best to make him leave. However, unphased, exuberant Dingo has other ideas!

This humourous and touching
Australiana picture book, written in rhythmic verse, and gleaming with gems of classic Aussie Lingo, will bring a smile to the cheeks and hearts of readers of all ages.

(Includes Glossary for Aussie Lingo)


           Tree Folk
'When you're walking in nature,
be observing brightly.
There are magickal creatures,
lissome and spritely. . .'

Tree Folk
is a wondrous, whimsical
picture book journey through nature,
with the aim of seeking the
magickal folk therein.
Illustrated photographically,
using images the author and others
have collected during forays into nature,
this  delightful, unique experience will appeal
to adults and children alike.
It entices inspiration within us,
to slow down, look around,
and truly appreciate
our precious natural world.
