Hello, Mel­bourne!

Time Out (Melbourne) - - THINGS TO DO -

THINK OF IL­LUS­TRA­TOR Me­gan Mckean’s Hello, Mel­bourne! as a starter pack on all things Mel­bourne. Per­fect for young chil­dren, this charm­ing pic­ture book fol­lows six cheeky mag­pies as they ex­plore 14 of their favourite Mel­bourne places for food, fun, shop­ping, cul­ture and sport. Fly­ing across the city on a full day of ad­ven­ture, the mag­pies make pit stops at all your favourite sites. They ad­mire the Hosier Lane graf­fiti, shop in the bustling Royal Ar­cade, then head to the MCG for a footy match, eat tasty Ital­ian food on Ly­gon Street and ex­plore the book­ish won­ders of the State Li­brary. Like a Mel­bour­nised ver­sion of Where’s Wally, Hello, Mel­bourne! beau­ti­fully cap­tures Mel­bourne’s in­fec­tious com­mu­nity spirit and land­marks. It’s the per­fect gift for the lit­tlest Mel­bur­nian you know. ■ Re­becca Russo à Thames & Hud­son. www.thame­sand­hud­sonaus­tralia.com. RRP$25.
