ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- This is another beautiful collaboration between author and illustrator responsible for the award-winning Little Bird's Day. The narrator loves the river by their home, and looks and listens carefully. With a constant refrain of 'look with your eyes, what do you see' and 'listen with your ears, what do you hear' the reader is shown the many different creatures who make the river their home. Gorgeous ochre-hued cross-hatched illustrations fill the pages. Perfect for the pre-schooler, with its rhythmic and repetitive text that begs to be read aloud. Lindy

The River takes the reader on a journey of what their eyes can see and their ears can hear. See geen ants crawling, hear frogs croaking, a goanna running, a fish splashing...
Sally Morgan's beautiful words and Johnny Warrkatja Malibirr's sensitive artwork combine to make this a unique, distinctive children's picture book with global appeal. Johnny infuses his illustrations with his fine-art aesthetic and his traditional motifs to bring each page to vivid life.
