Blown AwayBook - 1995
When the wind picks up on Mistaken Road remarkable things can happen. It's going to take a resourceful trio of night-time adventurers to undo what the wind has done in one day.
Under an agate moon, Jess, Claire and Rigby set off on their mission to the Castle of Kite. To say that they get carried away is an understatement! In this high-flying adventure, they encounter a giant that sneezes, the spindrift of the Milky Way, and a windfall of lost and blown away objects. Their only problem now is how to get home.
In this, her lovliest, most fantastical picture book to date, prolific West Coast children's author Julie Lawson lets her own potent of imagination get carried away - out on the finest of strings.
There is no better match for lawson's story than pictures by Kathryn Naylor. Her luminous watercolour palette of snap-flapping colours and her own georgeous sense of play make Blown Away a marriage of talents made in heaven or somewhere very near by.
