The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - FUNDAY TELEGRAPH -

Lesley Gibbes & Judy Wat­son Part of the Na­ture Sto­ry­books Se­ries, two strands of text are iden­ti­fied by dif­fer­ent fonts. One strand is the story of a boy search­ing for cicadas with his grand­fa­ther. They watch the nymphs emerge at night and dis­cover a rare Black Prince. The other strand con­tains re­lated facts such as a ci­cada’s wings can range from 2.5cm to 15cm. Evoca­tive il­lus­tra­tions per­fectly de­pict the Aus­tralian bush. A fun way to learn about cicadas.
