A delightful, inspirational book using the natural New Zealand surroundings to create art.
Encouraging the reader's imagination, art can be created anywhere. From the beach to the
forest, from rain or the sky, art can be made without paint or paper.
The mixed media illustrations are very clear, detailed and fun. The children loved the patterning, collage and palate of colours used, and the writing is very visual and easy to see on each page.
