The Tale of Kangaroo Point by R.E.C. Pearson
Published by R.E.C. Pearson
A modern Australian rhyming fable that tells of the charmingly engaging adventures of Little Rat, who sets out one day on a quest to find Kangaroo Point, where he hopes to discover the reason why his tail is so short.
Little Rat rescues Sum the possum from Snake, and the pair journey on together to meet many other enchanting characters, such as Croc, Gecko, Fruit Bat and Figaro, who is a two hundred year old Moreton Bay Fig Tree that loves to sing.
There are some sections in the story that are beautifully lyrical and evocative in their imagery and tone. With illustrations based strongly in the elements of modern abstract art, Little Rat voyages across an exciting canvass of warm, earth tones and vibrant blocks of colour, texture and pattern.
A rather different children’s storybook, and one that both adults and children can share, enjoy and discuss. For children and adults of all ages.
