I had trouble finding where to get this book from so if you can find somewhere that I can link below let me know in the comments. I got this from the library so try your libraries if you can't buy a copy.
The pictures are full page beautiful colour. The story is simple and enjoyable. What I liked most about this story was the fact the lady thought she should move house to get peace and quiet so she could read. Life proved to be just as noisy and busy as the city. It's the old tale of life isn't always greener on the other side of the fence.
This story is a brilliant way of showing children that what we wish for isn't always what we want. The animals will attract any child as they are characters in themselves in each picture.
The old woman thought that when she moved to the country she would have plenty of time to read. But she soon found that each season brought other tasks to keep her busy...
John Winch, who lives in the outback New South Wales, lovingly depicts the ups and downs of rural life.
