Golden Wattle Books- Roz Berg, Drayton Qld
This delightful book with its lyrical and engaging narrative and its colourfully illustrated pages is bound to pull on your childhood memories and tug on your heartstrings. The bush is bought to life by Roz, who told said that ‘Growing up in the bush as a child for her equalled fun’. Swimming in the billabong with platypuses, exploring the bush, the creek and the limestone rock pools fed her free spirit and sense of adventure and helped develop a vivid imagination. A life-long love of writing poems, drawing and painting and a promise made to her parents to create a children’s book was the inspiration. Written in rhyming verse and woven amongst the pages are charming memories like Mum’s garden, George the Cockatoo, Rosie the Galah and Kerry the Kangaroo. A possum that loves apples and pretty butterflies Roz chased as a child. 'Winter to Spring in the Australian Bush' is a promise fulfilled, offering a nostalgic journey for all ages.
