This is a beautiful book. The illustrations are originally silk paintings of such a standard that they formed a month-long exhibition at the Tweed River Art Gallery, when this book was there launched. It is an environmental tale, set in the caldera of the Mount Warning Volcano (hopefully dormant!) in northern New South Wales. It brings in the elemental beings, and the fairies, interacting them with humans, teaching the humans how to respect a very unusual environment.
