Like the other Sasek classics, these are facsimile editions of his original books. The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, remaining true to his vision more than forty years later and, where applicable, facts have been updated for the twenty-first century, appearing on a "This is . . . Today" page at the back of each book. The stylish, charming illustrations, coupled with Sasek's witty, playful narrative, make these books a perfect souvenir that will delight both children and their parents, many of whom will remember them from their own childhood. In This is Australia, first published in 1970, Sasek swings down under, winging his readers into Sydney, with its famous bridge and space-age Opera House; bustling, modern Melbourne; colonial Adelaide; semitropical Brisbane; the garden city of Canberra; mineral-rich Perth; and Alice Springs, Australia's most famous outback town.

Recensioner i media

"...his [Sasek] edition is just as stunning and plentiful as his previous books--stacked with fabulous observances on the life and scenes of [our] beautiful country. A must-have for Aussies and everyone else, too." ~Kids-Bookreview.com "This is an outstanding book, full of facts and well illustrated. Younger children will be interested in the birds and animals. Others - including adults - may be interested in history, cities, and buildings." ~Douglas McWilliams, San Francisco Book Review
