At the Beach I See (Young Art series)

LONGLISTED – 2018 ABIA Small Publishers' Children's Book of the Year

SHORTLISTED – 2018 Speech Pathology Australia's Book of the Year (Birth to Three Years category)

This delightful book for Early Childhood will mesmerise young children and older readers. The black linework and colourful wash backgrounds work beautifully with the lyrical text. Together they introduce extraordinary creatures and birds that we can discover and observe around our Australian coastline. ‘Dancing jellyfish’, ‘scuttling crabs’, ‘scattered shells’, ‘drifting seaweed’ and ‘waving coral’ evoke the wonder of our beaches and the treasures to be found.

Second release of the ‘Young Art’ Board Book series that showcases young Indigenous artists.

"The illustrations in this book are intriguing, giving a feeling of movement on the page. Kasmani Bin Salleh uses an interesting mix of black lines and patterns highlighted by a watercolour look which makes each page really pop."
