REVIEW BY JACKI FRENCH
Books on the Wind By Jackie French (children's author.) Mostly I find books mooching around the shop after sessions at bookshops or literary festivals, often with a book lover next to me urging, ‘You HAVE to read this. It’s fabulous! Oh look, there’s a new Shaun Tan. Stunning!’ And it always is.

But in the last few weeks, two books have arrived via my email, neither from major publishers, but the work of the authors themselves.And they are lovely, the kind of book where I wish my grandson was next to my desk so I could share them with him. (Actually I wish this often – and not just when I have books to share.)
The first was Nanna's Boot Camp by Vicki Griffin, and I love it. Nanna – who I suspect is based on a very real Nanna indeed, is indigenous, and her ‘boot camp’ is not the ‘sweat and 500 push ups’ kind you expect. The book is gentle and warm and lovable and a delight.
So I am very, very biased indeed. But also grateful that the winds of e-mail landed two books on my desk that I probably would never have found in bookshops.

The Little Bird Told Me by Katerina Rubbo
The idea of translating Russian Nursery Rhymes into English came to me when my daughter Ellen was born.
All my life I'd lived in Russia I always loved folklore, beautiful fairy tales, wise fables and tender songs.
I started questioning the whole idea of culture and belonging and that brought me to the Nursery Rhymes. I decided to translate them into English and make my own pictures to share my heritage with my daughter. The inspiration came from Russian style woodcuts called “LUBOK”. I chose this naïve style for the rhymes and it started flowing as the water in a stream.
I look at this book as a gift for children who grow up in multicultural environment and for those families interested in keeping their cultural heritage.
