Bob Graham's Latest Picture Book


Australian Writer and Illustrator Bob Graham How the Sun Got to Coco’s House Walker Books 2015 $28.00hb 32pp IBSN 978 1 4063 5900 8 Themes: Cultural differences/ Sunrise

The sun rises very slowly over polar bears and fishermen, over a plane high in the sky, through rural towns and big cities, deserts and frozen forests til, at last, it shows its wintery light through Coco’s bedroom. It stays with her all day (just sometimes hiding behind a cloud) and then, at the end of her day gently goes off on its continuing round. This is exactly the sort of book we have come to expect from Bob Graham – full of wisdom and insight and with his trademark illustrations to support its theme.

The book is endorsed by Amnesty International UK because it reminds us that this world belongs to us all and we all have the right to enjoy life, freedom and safety.
