This new 4-volume set of books featuring stories and poems themed around the four elements evokes the sights and sounds of a diverse Commonwealth community. The books are gloriously illustrated with vibrant, full-colour pictures by world-renown children’s illustrators, including Jan Pienkowski, and makes the perfect gift for both adults and children.

Each book has its own particular magic – whether describing the simple pleasures of the sound of the ocean or the wind whistling through the trees; recounting the cunning tricks of clever animals; or enchanting the reader with the exploits of Kings and Queens, Gods and Goddesses – together they provide an evocative picture, capturing the sights, sounds and flavours of a global community.
