ABBEY’S BOOKSELLER PICK —— This is Sydney for kids – both local and visiting. It is a guidebook aimed at children rather than adults, and so it is concerned with subjects they find interesting! Trails will take them to convict Sydney, or hunt for haunted buildings, show them the sporty side or the wild (natural!) side of the city, and reveal Aboriginal art sites or modern architecture. Colourful illustrations and photographs round out the lively text. A great treat - and maybe not just for kids! Lindy Jones
