Rivertime by Trace Balla

A tender and beautifully illustrated tale of a boy and his bird-watching uncle, on a paddling trip on Australia's Glenelg River.

Short-listed for theCBCA Picture Book of the Year 2015 and the CBCA Book of the Year, Crichton Award for New Illustrators, 2015 'All children need an Uncle Egg to open up the magical world of nature. We all need to get outside, away from television, computers and mobile phones, and what better way than a canoeing- camping trip? This is a delightful story about the joy of the outdoors.' David Suzuki 'Rivertime is a quirky, charming immersion into the life of a waterway and into the life-lessons a river can teach.' Maya Ward (author of The Comfort of Water)
