Read full description of the books The Story of Rosy Dock:Jeannie Baker is a collage artist. many are created to illiustrate her children's books, but they also stand alone as works of art, and there are some in art galleries. like 'Where The Forest Meets The Sea' the technique is employed to illustrate an environmental theme - this time the introduction of exotic plant species.
This time it is a desert environment of the Finke River. It is a superb introduction to this ecological issue. it is not, however finger-wagging. At the end Baker says: " Throughout the world, often with the best intentions, people introduce plants and animals into a new environment with enormous unforseen consequences. Without their normal predators, some non-native plants and animals multiply so quickly they change the whole landscapes and push many native plants and animals to extinction."
Thus Baker seeks to educate and alert us to the problem and raise our awarness so as to avoid the same mistakes in the future.
Equally at home as a general reading book, or useful in a primary school science course.
