Where the Forest Meets the Sea by Jeannie Baker“My father says there has been a forest here for over a hundred million years,” Jeannie Bakers young protagonist tells us, and we follow him on a visit to this tropical rain forest in North Queensland, Australia.
We walk with him among the ancient trees as he pretends it is a time long ago, when extinct and rare animals lived in the forest and aboriginal children played there. But for how much longer will the forest still be there, he wonders?
Jeannie Bakers lifelike collage illustrations take the reader on an extraordinary visual journey to an exotic, primeval wilderness, which like so many others is now being threatened by civilization.
