Illustrated by Greig, Rhondda
This is a simple story about a boy, a cow and a journey of discovery. Noa's Calf, by New Zealand artist Rhondda Greig, is told entirely in sumptuous illustrations. It is a beautiful and original picture book. The book was inspired when a child from the city visited Rhondda at her... home in the Wairarapa: 'As we were driving down the road behind a herd of cows going to milking, one of the city children asked me what the swinging udder was. When told it contained the milk we could drink, the child burst out with the comment that milk only came from milk bottles. I realised even then that New Zealand was changing into an urban society where many children had no comprehension of the rhythm of country life.'Read more
