Age range 3 - 8
Big Fella Rain is a celebration of northern Australia as animals, birds, trees and a parched earth await the first rain.
It is almost as if country stands still as the sparse yet evocative text pays homage to the transition from dry season to wet season in a country that is like no other place in the world.
Fern Martins illustrations seamlessly portray the dramatic skies, the thirsty animals and tiny creatures whose very existence rely on the monsoonal changes. Her exquisite rendering of the big landscape against the subtle shifts in the environment have a timeless quality that will capture the hearts of all readers.
Included on the Children's Book Council of Australia 2018 Notables list.

'Big Fella Rain is a glorious salute to the cycles of life and the seasons that shape those cycles. One to look at, feel and absorb many times over.' - Boomerang Books
