Explore the landscapes in Marc Martin’s inspirational picture book for observation, questioning, reflection and visualisation…
From her bedroom high above the city, a girl sits looking at a river. It stretches away in both directions and she imagines herself swept along it “in a silver boat towards the horizon”.
Subsequent spreads show her boat following the river through different locations, from car-jammed city flyovers and smoke-filled factories to patchwork fields and waterfalls.
Information mixes with dreamscape as the river takes her through jungles, past mangroves and out into the open sea.
Part exploration of the power of imagination and part introduction to habitats and the water cycle, this appealing picture book offers gloriously immersive, densely coloured artwork with a sophisticated edge.
Martin’s pared-back text leads us through each landscape, framing the reader’s observations but leaving plenty of room for thinking, questioning and responding.
