Giinagay Gaagal, Hello Ocean is a full-colour explosion of movement, rhythm and texture. Kids and adults alike will be mesmerised by the immersive ocean scenes, with landscapes, plants and animals abstracted and yet instantly recognisable as emblems of Australia’s stunning coastline. The accompanying text is just as captivating, with a lilting rhythm and easy flow. The storyline conveys a simple and sweet adventure, imbued with a deep respect for nature and the ocean’s gifts, as well as the family that makes our everyday adventures so special. Gumbaynggirr words dotted throughout this special work, and like Greenwood’s previous books, a full Gumbaynggirr translation of the text is provided at the back of the book.
