From the minute she woke and rolled out of bed
one thing was sure, there was trouble ahead
Meet Dexi Lee! Dexi Lee is an ordinary girl..
Except for one thing.
Her hands are GIGANTIC!
Everything she does leads to absolute chaos. But one day she meets some extraordinary animals and suddenly life doesn’t seem so gloomy…
Probably my most favourite thing about this book are the illustrations. They are paintings by the multi-talented Lucy Culliton. One of Australia’s greatest painters. Lucy loves to paint animals. She has a farm full of them. She has more pets than anyone I’ve ever met. You can tell how much Lucy loves animals from her paintings. When Lucy agreed to paint Dexi I was thrilled. It’s such an honour to have my work alongside hers. Here’s a sneak peak at some of the chaos poor old Dexi whips up…
And a dip at the pool made for battering seas,
tossing children like corks
into neighbourhood trees,
“A wonderful heart-warming tale of difference and happiness.”
