Product description

Review

“Big, beautiful, and diverse” are the words McCartney uses to describe Australia, and they are the very words that could describe this book. It is big and it is fat (criteria important to some of our junior readers); it is beautiful with colour, iconic illustrations and few words; and it’s diverse with its focus on a range of topics that don’t usually feature in these sorts of texts. Each page is a vibrant explosion of colour and movement that celebrate our places and people in quirky ways."

"Australia Illustrated is the kind of book I loved as a child. So many details to notice and enjoy. Each double page spread has so much to see and think about. The illustrations capture the imagination and present Australia as the diverse, interesting, quirky, and beautiful land we know it to be."

"with enough iconic charm to make both Banjo Paterson and Con the Fruiterer feel at home, her first self-illustrated picture book, Australia: Illustrated delivers a (very satisfying) slice of all things Aussie to an audience who might still remember what a frog cake is as well as those young enough to regard the Wheel of Brisbane as their first Ferris wheel ride."

"Rarely have I been so blown away by a book's design that I have actually stroked the pages - but I love Australia: Illustrated ... This should be under every Christmas Tree!"

"a beautifully-drawn, 96-page exploration of our nation and the differences between cultures in each state and territory."

"Tania’s ‘Australia: Illustrated‘ is a visual tribute to Australia that will have children and adults mesmerised."

"timeless..very collectable...real humour and heart in the illustrations"

"A small slice of Australia but a very detailed and fascinating look at this unique country. Simple but so informative and such fun to dip into often, with quirky, delightful illustrations. Highly recommended."

"the love for Australia beams out from every page."

"Tania McCartney has created a book that inspires discussions in the readers – big and little. As you open to the first page you are met with words describing Australia – big, beautiful and diverse. I can tell you that this is a good description also of this book; it’s content and the beautiful illustrations."
