Meredith Hooper has written over fifty books, on everything from
pyramids to aeroplanes. This book is based partly on a river that
flowed past her garden, and partly on rivers she has seen on her
travels in many other parts of the world.
Bee Wiley has created artwork for books, magazines, even CD covers. With this book, she says, the flow of the river (starting as a trickle, then gaining speed and collecting things on its way to the sea) is like the flow of teamwork that went into making River Story.
The book is beautifully illustrated by Bee Willey, with amazing details about the river and creatures found in or near it. [...] It's an excellent way to introduce rivers to young children, in Reception and KS1, and a good introduction to the study of rivers in the geography curriculum. * Parents in Touch *
