Reliving cherished childhood memories of trips to town, Maree Coote has created a delightful nonsense romp around the city of style. Join in a child's discovery of Melbourne, its surprises, its delights, its hidden treasures, and its unexpected touchstones. "When you go to Melbourne, see if you can see . . ." Can you find the golden whale? Can you work out how many gryphons? How many Bridges? Can you find the Giants? Come to town to find the answers, or use the clues given in the illustrations. And when the story is finished, there are hidden motifs in every page for extra fun and engagement.
