Product description

Product Description

The Magic Mist is a fantasy, in the form of a lovely, 90-line poem , A young boy goes for a quiet walk on a path in the Australian bush (or forest). A mysterious mist descends and as the boy walks into it, assuming that it is an ordinary mist, he suddenly discovers that a magical new world of Australian bush animals is revealed: "Across my path marched lines of ants, in brightly coloured shoes and pants...." He'd seen many kangaroos in the bush - but none like the one he sees that day - a kangaroo wearing a bush hat who speaks to him, and further on, a wombat, wearing a dressing gown invites him to lunch. More surprises are in store.
The full-page illustrations by Helen Marshall, are breathtakingly beautiful in their rich colours. There is a colouring-in page which includes words in the story that young readers may not know. They are encouraged to find out their meanings.
The book is not only a delight to read while enjoying the illustrations; it's also very educational. There are illustrations of beautiful Australian birds, such as the sulphur-crested cockatoo, and Australian animals, such as the kangaroo, and new words to learn.
The proof-reader commented: "I didn't want it to end!" That may well be the reaction of most who read this lovely story.

Tony, with his wife Janet and their two furry "children" Jock the border collie and Tonkie the Tonkinese cat live on the beautiful shores of Lake Macquarie, NSW, Australia. Helen Marshall is an accomplished artist, illustrator and author. She lives on the shores of Lake Macquarie and finds inspiration from her beautiful surroundings.
