River Business is a children’s book that is conceived, set and made in Tasmania (lutruwita / trowunna).
The story brings focus to an unlikely but beautiful friendship between two night-time creatures. Through lyrical prose and soft illustrations, the book shows them sharing and overcoming their differences through joy, fun and river based play.
Ideal for readers 0-8 and a perfect Christmas, birthday, baby shower or Easter gift. Also a wonderful addition to any classroom.
Tasmanian wildlife, landscapes and connections inspired all elements of the book, from character development through to printing.
Telling Tasmanian stories like this one will help build a shared understanding of this place, for locals and for those in other parts of the world.
