Somewhere Else by Gus Gordon
Published by Penguin Books Australia
From award-winning author and illustrator Gus Gordon, comes this irresistible story about a duck called George, the possibility of adventure, and taking risks to realise what you value most.
George is a duck, and his many friends travel far and wide, reflecting the true nature of the migratory bird population. But George does not. Why does George not travel like the rest of them? Find out in this delicious tale about friendship, courage, being brave, and the diversity of places that bird, and people alike, can travel to.
Gus Gordon’s highly awarded illustration skills shine through in this book. Using a blend of collage, with delightful snippets of materials of plenty a pattern and image, well-defined line work, and water colour magic, Gordon has created a visual feast which will give repeat readers more to discover on each reading. And this is a book that you will want to read time and time again.
Congratulations to Gus Gordon on his latest addition to the quality body of children’s literature that we are so lucky to have in this country!
