A boy and his grandfather go camping during summertime watching for cicadas. One part of the text tells the story and the alternate text in a different font provides rich information about cicadas. Beautiful illustrations in pencil, brush and ink are created by award-winning illustrator Judy Watson and evoke a sense of wonder in the Australian bush. The book also provides further features for younger students to develop skills in accessing information with an information summary and index. The book concludes with a reminder to readers, ‘Don’t forget to look at both kinds of word-‘, that being the words in the story and the information words in their different fonts.
