From the author of Are we there yet?, a gorgeous, sparkly new cover edition of a classic Australian picture-book. Affectionate, funny, and full of adventure, My Farm gives a vivid picture of a child's life in the country.
Alison Lester grew up on a farm by the sea in eastern Victoria. My Farm is her story of a memorable year, the year she got a palomino pony for Christmas. Trick-riding horses, mustering cattle, training the dog, competing at the local show, feeding calves, picking mushrooms, raising a baby wombat, building cubbies, cutting hay, swimming ponies in the dam, hypnotizing chooks . . . all the activities through the seasons are depicted with child-like mischief and humour.
