Synopsis: Grandma, who lives with a large collection of animals in her small Australian town, takes a disastrous trip to the seaside.
From School Library Journal:
Gr 1-5 Tall tales should start from a believable base, and Grandma is sufficiently eccentric and spirited to convince readers that she just might ride a kangaroo around town and dine with emus. Children will be delighted by her many strange adventures, shared with a menagerie of Australian animals, in this beautifully illustrated story-poem. Best known for Animalia (Abrams, 1987), Base alternates between subdued sepia-toned line drawings and richly colored, very detailed illustrations that burst the boundaries of oversized, double-page layouts. Realism and exaggeration are blended almost perfectly and complement the poem's humor. This is a good choice for group use, as children will enjoy trying to find Grandma in several scenes. Certainly not an essential purchase, but a fun way to meet Australia's unique animals and an exciting new illustrator. Jeanette Larson, Mesquite Public Library, Tex.
