Belonging

Author: Jeannie Baker
Illustrator: Jeannie Baker
Publisher: Walker

A companion volume to the illustrator’s earlier book Window, this book charts the changes in an urban neighbourhood by viewing it through the same window frame as a baby grows to womanhood and has her own child. Unlike Window, this book is not entirely wordless as there many examples of environmental print on the outside and clues about the girl's age on the inside on the windowsill. In an author’s note, Jeannie Baker explains her belief that we belong to the land and vice versa, and this is beautifully evoked in her collage pictures.
