The Snake and the Boy is a tale of the school playground with an intriguing twist. As children play football beneath a sea-blue sky, one boy takes to the bars in the playground, only to have a cunning green tree snake sneak in and steal his apple. The author’s vibrant illustrations using acrylic paints capture the wide-open spaces of a country schoolyard, such as those in and around his home in the remote Kimberley region, where you never know when a wild creature might pay a visit. Children everywhere will relate to this endearing story.
