    A moving tribute showing us the deadly harshness of wildfire to both those who fight this insidious phenomenon and those tho lose so much to it Beautifully illustrated my five year old commented on their uniueness Author and illustrator both comment on their distinctive style at the end of the book A serious and almost unsettling story unfortunately this topic is all too real Very very good Not light hearted but Indy did listen He was almost somberIt was his first day of kindergarten today he was tired; but good to see that two nights in a row we read together

    Any Australian who is old enough to understand history and current events will have experienced a bush fire either first hand or by following to closely on the news Even as I write this there are fires in AustraliaBush fires are devastating and have taken many lives and property and this book is a beautifully presented book about the horrors of these fires in the vast land of AustraliaIt is a similar idea to the book French did on flood and is a recommended book for all to read

    Thoughtful rhyming text provides a launching pad for discussion but it is the amazing realistic illustrations that I think elevate this book I have previously read Flood and I am sure Drought Cyclone are just as powerful for those who have experienced them
