The Windy Farm by Doug MacLeod and Craig Smith

The Windy Farm has been shortlisted for this years Children's Book Council Award for best picture book.

It uses fairly typical Aussie humour & a sense of the ridiculous to deliver an environmental message.

Flying pigs, greedy uncles & extreme weather conditions all add to the sense of fun. But it's the inventing mum who problems solves our way to a satisfying ending that steals the show.

As with all good picture books, Smith's illustrations complement and add to MacLeod's cautionary tale.

Sustainable living, shared community effort and enterprise are all rewarded in this fun story for 4+ readers.
