"Look see, look at me. I'm so much bigger now I'm three. I can run, I can jump, I can skip, I can bump..." From the acclaimed author and illustrator team of You and Me: Our Place comes a delightful celebration of outback family life in an Aboriginal community. Leonie Norrington and Dee Huxley visited three northern communities, Wugularr, Barunga and Manyalalluk, to workshop words and drawings for this book. With its exuberant rhyming text and wonderful illustrations, Look See, Look at Me perfectly captures a child's everyday life.
About the Author
Leonie Norrington's books include Woman's Talk, Under the Mango Tree, and Tropical Food Gardens. Her children's books include The Devil You Know, The Barrumbi Kids, Croc Bait, The Spirit of Barrumbi, The Last Muster, and her first collaboration with Dee Huxley, You and me: Our Place. Dee Huxley was shortlisted for the CBCA Picture Book of the Year Award for her illustrations in Mr Nick's Knitting in 1989, Rain Dance in 2001 and Tom Tom in 2009.
A simple book, where the movement in the illustrations matches the rhythm of the text and conveys a sense of individual freedom, community and the presense of the natural world. In these enticing pages non-Aboriginal children, even as they may be surprised by the place and its people, will recognise the fun and excitement to be found in family, play and the triumphs of growing.
