by Krys Saclier and illustrated by Cathy Wilcox
How do Australian children learn about politics, democracy and currency? They go to Canberra: the nation’s capital city.
Join the student of Mount Mayhem Primary School as they travel from the National Gallery to Questacon, through engaging collage illustrations.
From the cleverly presented endpapers to the day-by-day account of the trip, readers will be engaged by the information accompanying the photographs that are overlayed with detailed graphic images of the students. This is book full of humour, interesting facts and visits to an array of well know Canberra tourist destinations including the Australian War Memorial, Mount Stromlo Observatory, Questacon, Aboriginal Tent Embassy, National Portrait Gallery, Royal Australian Mint, High Court and Parliament House.
