From Kalgoorlie to the Bungle Bungles, this fifth picture book in Roland Harvey's holiday adventure series takes us across landscapes and towns and introduces us to the people of Australia's west. A companion to the CBCA-shortlisted To the Top End.
Roland Harvey is one of Australia's best-loved illustrators. In 1978, he established Roland Harvey Studios and began designing and producing greeting cards, posters and stationery with a distinctly Australian flavour. Ventures into publishing quickly followed. Some of his best-loved books include My Place in Space (with Joe Levine), Burke and Wills, The First Fleet, Sick As (with Gael Jennings) and The New Roland Harvey Christmas Book, reincarnated by Allen and Unwin in 2008 as Roland Harvey's Big Book of Christmas. His recent books include the best-selling At the Beach, In the Bush, In the City and To the Top End and his brilliant illustrations are also a feature of It's True! Burke + Wills Forgot the Frying Pan by David Greagg and the Bonnie + Sam series - the Horses and Ponies of Currawong Creek, in collaboration with Alison Lester.
