On the River
This is a paperback edition of Roland Harvey's journey along the mighty Murray River from the mountains to the sea.
Roland Harvey and his new pelican friend are off on an adventure to walk, fish, canoe, raft, windsurf, sail, paddle-steam, houseboat and even fly their way along the Murray River, from its smallest beginnings in the high country to where it meets the sea.
Together they discover the story of the river: its secrets, history, ecology, people and animals. And you're invited, too!
A delight for all ages from the creator of the bestselling At the Beach series and a Children's Book Council of Australia Notable Book.
Roland's marvellously detailed artwork, unusual perspectives, devilish sense of humour, and joy in the natural world shine out in this book that will delight the whole family.
'It's impossible to look through the pictures without learning something or to read the text without a smile. Highly recommended.' Sunday Telegraph!
