See Hear
(April 2018, EK Books, $24.99, hard cover, 9781925335675)

Such riches in an exquisite combination of author and illustrator that goes so far beyond the usual eyes see, ears hear books for this age group. - Barbara Braxton, The Bottom Shelf

This innovative flip-format picture book is a sequel to the best-selling Smile Cry (CBCA Notable Book and SCBWI Crystal Kite Award winner for Australia New Zealand, 2017).

Piglet, Bunny and Cat return in a charming, whimsical sensory adventure that encourages kids to explore the multitude of ways they can engage with the world around them, particularly via the senses of sight and sound.

From watching 'squiggly rain' on a window to pointing out 'heavenly horses' in the clouds, from hearing 'buzzing blossoms' as bees collect pollen and nectar to 'hot pan sizzles' as a favourite meal is prepared, See Hear invites us to open our eyes and ears to the everyday magic that surrounds us.

Younger kids will respond to the soft whimsical illustrations, while older readers will enjoy the onomatopoeic wordplay. Perfect for ages 3 and up, this is a book that will captivate children and parents alike.

The delicate, careful use of onomatopoeia is quite poetic. Fabulous phrases are given life via Jess Racklyeft’s absorbing illustrations. - My Book Corner

The incredibly clever and innovative sequel to the award-winning picture book Smile Cry. - Kids' Book Review

Imagine how it could be used to encourage young writers to bring depth and richness to their words, to explore the world of metaphor and simile, to really look and listen and feel and taste and then share that with their readers. - The Bottom Shelf

From the dream team that brought you Smile Cry (Crystal Kite Award 2017 and 2017 CBC Notable Book) comes another beautiful and whimsical book for little people. A sensory exploration of the world around us using the senses of sight and hearing is a perfect way to have children calm from their busy day. - Just So Stories
