By Jackson Hill, DianeIllustrated by Smith, Craig
A short-tailed shearwater flies from the edge of the Southern Ocean to the rim of the Arctic Circle - and back - every year. This remarkable 30,000 kilometre journey is driven by seabird law. Instinct and community will guide her. A wingspan the size of a child's outstretched arm...s will support her. But first, she must catch the wind... Based on birds that live on Griffith Island, near Port Fairy, Victoria, Windcatcher is a tale of migration, conservation and survival that begins with one small bird called Hope. Written by award-winning children's author Diane Jackson Hill and illustrated by Craig Smith, one of Australia's most prolific and popular illustrators, Windcatcher explores the mysteries of seabird migration for primary aged readers.Read more
