This arresting and beautiful picture book from Margaret Wild
and Ron Brooks is a shimmering encounter with the Tasmanian
tiger, a lament for a lost species, and a compelling
evocation of the place of animals in Nature.
The Dream of
the Thylacine is
a lament for a lost species, and a celebration of the
Australian landscape. It interposes arresting text and
images of the last known thylacine in a concrete cage with
sweeping colour paintings of the animal in its natural
environment. Intense, poetic and beautiful, this book will
haunt you. Margaret Wild and Ron Brooks have created three
other exceptional picture books together: Old
and Tortoise and Fox.
