The Watertower (Paperback)

20th Anniversary Edition. Selected School Library Journal Best Book of the Year. Winner of the Australian Children's Picture Book of the Year Award. Nobody in Preston could remember when the watertower was built, or who had built it, but there it stood on Shooter's Hill—its iron legs rusted, its egg-shaped tank warped and leaking—casting a long dark shadow across the valley, across Preston itself.
About the Author
Gary Crew has written many award-winning books for children including First Light which won the Australian Children's Picture Book of the Year Award. He lives in Queensland. Steven Woolman's big-screen style landscapes and eerie black surrounds, reminiscent of a darkened movie theater, set the scene for The Watertower, his ninth published book.
"...a genuinely eerie picture book."
The Watertower... continues to attract interest - and readers. Crew, a prestidigitator of words, has managed to work his magic...
"It would be an understatement to describe this book as unusual... a "must purchase."
... text and illustrations work inseparably to create a strange but compelling whole.
