            The Australian desert: for thousands of years the only changes here were made by the wind, the willy-willies and sometimes the rain. Then a hundred years ago people from Europe settled in the desert and planted seeds from the other side of the world. The Story of Rosy Dock is the... story of one of the settlers who followed them, and her garden in the wilderness, a garden that is beautiful - but with an unexpected flowering.

            Come with Australian Geographic on a voyage like no other through our planet's great habitats to experience what shapes the creatures living there. This remarkable book will take you thousands of metres down into the lightless world of a Pacific Ocean abyss where the pressure is ...so immense it would flatten aeroplanes . . . but not the Mariana snailfish! Then you'll be transported thousands of metres back up to where the special blood of bar-headed geese helps them cope with the lack of oxygen in the air over Mount Everest. Discover how raucous howler monkeys survive 50m or more up tropical trees in the Amazon rainforest, and how addaxes and fennec foxes fend for themselves in the relentlessly searing heat of the Sahara Desert. Dive with us to the colourful sponge gardens and coral wonderlands of the Great Barrier Reef and dare to tread with us underground through a world of giant insects, blind fishes and other troglodytes in the caves of Southeast Asia.

            The Dream of the Thylacine is a lament for a lost species, and a celebration of the Australian landscape. It interposes arresting text and images of the last known thylacine in a concrete cage with sweeping colour paintings of the animal in its natural environment. Intense, poeti...c and beautiful, this book will haunt you. Margaret Wild and Ron Brooks have created three other exceptional picture books together: Old Pig, Rosie and Tortoise and Fox. What a privilege to pay tribute to this highly original and unique book.a book for anyone of any age who has eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to break. The economic 130-word text is an extended metaphor, an ode, a lament, yet also a lyric, reinforced by intriguing and absolutely 'right' illustrations. The thylacine here is representative of any hunted, caged, imprisoned creature capable of dreaming - of running wild, of claiming one's biological and cultural birthright to be free.Thanks indeed to all concerned.
