The paintings of iconic Australian artists are brought to life in this exciting new picture book series of adventures about a young boy and girl. In this first book, Ben and Gracie Green enter the paintings of Frederick McCubbin and experience early settlement life in Australia.
When Ben and Gracie visit their mum at the art gallery where she works, they lose themselves in the paintings of colonial artist Frederick McCubbin, venturing back in time to meet with new settlers to Australia. Transported into a raging dust storm before moving on to a forest glade, Ben and Gracie travel with their new friends and see for themselves the difficulties faced in the harsh Australian bush environment. But on venturing deeper into the forest in search of wildflowers, the pair come across fairies and lose their way at nightfall. Will they be able to find their way back to the settlers and the art gallery? Age 5+
