"To the Harbour" by Stanley Palmer.
Matthew and Wayjo from Room 18 are the producers of this podcast. They have chosen a book that is one of the finalists in the picture book section of the2008 "New Zealand Post Book Awards". They tell us they have really enjoyed this book and give us three main reasons.
First they say that it tells us a lot about what New Zealand was like in the time our grandparents were young.
Second they really enjoyed the pictures in the book. The author painted the pictures himself and photographs of them are used to illustrate the book.
And finally, it is a really interesting story about some kids who set out on an adventure. They run into danger and have to get themselves out of it and get home safely.
