by POLIMENI, Cassy & STEWART, Briony

ISBN: 9780702265693
Australian: Yes
Published: 2023 by University of Queensland Press
Level: Early Years (R-2)


A skilfully told story that introduces children to the concept of protecting natural resources and diversity of crops for future generations by storing seeds in the world’s largest seed repository. High quality production and design with beautiful endpapers. Illustrations have variation of shot-type and angles, synthesising skilfully with the text and providing complementary information about setting and theme. The colour scheme changes to match the settings effectively. Compositions and angles are varied and interesting, the spread with the Northern Lights dancing across the skies is magnificent. Written text uses sophisticated vocabulary with various sentence types and effective use of noun groups, repetition and figurative language, including similes and metaphors. The settings are represented beautifully and help set the overall tone of hope in the future.
