Lachlan’s Walk

Set at the dramatic cliffside called The Gap at Watson’s Bay, Sydney, this story is about a toddler who  wanders out the open gate, across the street to danger. This is a familiar story as his mother discovers he is missing and goes on a panicky chase for her child. Luckily Lachlan’s sister Lisa sees him from her kindy and the child is saved from the cliff edge at the last minute.  Sandra Laroche’s second book with Libby Hathorn has pleasing and evocative artwork.
