           A very quaint book for a young child.  Not a Cloud in the Sky from author and illustrator Emma Quay.  Publisher HarperCollins 2014.
Lets be specific. We are told Emma Quay used wood panels, pencil, acrylic paint, watercolour, chalk pastels, an oil pastel, ink, a plastic straw, paper stencils, a champagne cork, a toothbrush, sponges, foam rollers, relief printing, photography and Photoshop for the illustrations. Colour reproduction by Graphic Print Group, Adelaide.
Picture books are often very engaging.

                                 Lego land for ants.
  Lego is found in the form of an Advent calendar.  The tradition of the calendar has lost almost all its meaning.
