Celebrated author-illustrator Pamela Allen retells a true story and celebrates some of Australian most famous icons in a series of delightful pictures for the very young.
This is a story of a plastic bag and a bird - a cautionary tale about taking care of our environment as well as being a wonderful showcase of some of the famous sights of Sydney.
'One day, a long time ago when I lived in Kirribilli, Sydney, I packed a lunch and set out to walk to the Botanic Gardens . . .
I crossed the harbour bridge then climbed down to Circular Quay. I walked beside the sea wall, past the Opera House until I reached the Botanic Gardens.
And this is what I saw.'
A great way to educate young children on the damage done by plastic use.
