On a perfect day, the hours stretch endlessly ahead. Scribbling with chalk, running with kites, digging for shells . . . paddling, climbing, dreaming. Hour unfolds upon hour, with reassuring comfort and sleep beckoning at the end. Danny Parker captures the simplicity, spontaneity and freedom of an idyllic childhood, while Freya Blackwood’s paintings of three children roaming a rolling beachside idyll capture the light—and even the smell and feel—of a perfect summer day. Perfect is balm for the soul. One of the page spreads is also included as an 8 x 6 print inside clear wrap, lightly glued to the inside cover.
Danny Parker is the author of Tree, nominated for a West Australian Young Reader’s award, and Parachute, shortlisted for Children's Book Council of Australia Picture Book of the Year. Freya Blackwood is an award winning illustrator and Kate Greenaway medalist.
