Hello, Mel­bourne

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Best Weekend - - NEWS - Mercedes Maguire

Me­gan McKean, Thames & Hud­son, $24.99

The au­thor of Hello, Syd­ney! is back with a fun look at our city south of the bor­der. It reads al­most like a travel guide for chil­dren, out­lin­ing all the top spots you’ll want to tick off on a week­end in Mel­bourne. Your tour lead­ers this time are six cheeky mag­pies that drop in on 14 dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions around the city, point­ing out land­marks, great places to eat, ways to get a lit­tle cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ence or some sport­ing fun. Young chil­dren will love the beau­ti­ful il­lus­tra­tions, done by McKean her­self, and the fun game of try­ing to spot all six mag­pies hid­den among the im­ages on ev­ery page. McKean, who is Syd­ney-based, is reg­u­larly in­spired to write and il­lus­trate books on cities she’s vis­ited.
