Overview

My father says there has been a forest here for over a hundred million years," Jeannie Baker's young protagonist tells us, and we follow him on a visit to this tropical rain forest in North Queensland, Australia.

We walk with him among the ancient trees as he pretends it is a time long ago, when extinct and rare animals lived in the forest and aboriginal children played there. But for how much longer will the forest still be there, he wonders?

Jeannie Baker's lifelike collage illustrations take the reader on an extraordinary visual journey to an exotic, primeval wilderness, which like so many others is now being threatened by civilization.

I was given this book to read and analyze by my English teacher. With a group of classmates, we deconstructed the images and took in the full meanings. Where the Forest Meets the Sea is a richly colourful book, and even though we treat it as an assignment, to be throw behind us after we hand it in, I have thoroughly enjoyed this piece of literature. At first I thought it was a little kiddies book, so why did our teacher select it? But it is wonderful!! Go Jeannie Baker!!!!!
