Age range: 4 to 8 Andrew Barton 'Banjo' Paterson was a man of many talents and accomplishments. In his lifetime, he fulfilled the roles of poet, lyricist, journalist, correspondent, speaker, author, clerk, solicitor, ambulance driver, soldier, sportsman, jockey, horse vet, bushma...n, farmer and radio commentator. He was a fine sportsman and loved hunting and fishing, but his great love was horses and the Australian bush. He travelled the world and lived a life of great creative passion, and his story is something that intrigues both adults and children alike, leaving a cultural legacy that continues to this day through his books, his poetry and, of course, Waltzing Matilda. This charming picture book for young children is a celebration of a man who became a world-traveller, hobnobbing with the glittering literati, but who still remained true to his roots, with a lifelong love of the Australian bush-something that called to him throughout his life. Children can join Banjo, his family, dog and neighbourhood friends, as they recount the life of Banjo Paterson with an afternoon of backyard playtime that truly typifies childhood. Illustrations by the award-winning Christina Booth are age-appropriate, active and heart-warming, making this impressive biography accessible to even the youngest of children.
