Kirsty Murray, illustrated by Karen Blair
A delightful picture book that celebrates the joy of young children trying to catch their shadows – from the creators of CBCA Honour Book When Billy was a Dog and Puddle Hunters.
On the sunshiny days, we go shadow catching.
First at home, then along the street to the cafe, and the playground and home again.
Our shadows glide and weave beside us as we run and play, tall in the morning, quiet at rest, hidden at midday and stretching out again in the afternoons.
A wonderful picture book about creative playfulness, time of day and following the path of the sun across the sky.
