Four incredible worlds by Alison Lester are presented together in this very sweet mini library format.

Imagine a perfect beach where you can splash through the waves, make sandcastles, explore rock-pools, and build a bonfire under the stars. Come to Magic Beach, where adventure begins.

Imagine yourself deep in the jungle, under the sea, in a land of ice and snow, in a prehistoric swamp, then turn the page and find all the animals living there. Enjoy Alison Lester’s Imagine, with intricate pictures ofthe natural world to explore again and again.

Imagine growing up on a farm, living with cows, horses, ducks, dogs – and one very special animal companion. Relive the year of the palomino pony, told with mischief and humour in My Farm, a vivid picture of a country childhood.

Imagine a group of wild ponies – the gold palomino, the chestnut, the bay; the pinto, the brown and the dappley grey – running loose in the mountains, and the travelling circus that wants to tame them. Go back in time in The Painted Poniesin a beautiful story about friendship and freedom.


Four Australian classics in one little library, from much-loved and bestselling author Alison Lester.
