'It's a Miroocool
features the same plucky protagonist, only this time the picture book is for younger readers. It is a lovely creation, from James' water-coloured drawings to Harris' simple yet effective narration ... The book uses iconic Australian terms ... The rural homestead is gorgeously illustrated through the vista of red earth, spinifex ... and windmill against a sunset ... this is a sweet book for preschoolers about a resourceful girl who does her best to help herself.'
BOOKSELLER PUBLISHER (Thuy On)
'...Visually, this is just wonderful; Audrey positively dances about the pages, with James' lovely, scrappy drawings perfectly capturing the earthy tones of the outback. The illustrations really complement the simple, effective text that weaves this fresh take on tooth loss ... This is the perfect introduction to the excellent Audrey Barlow.'
